So after some cussing and yelling and trouble shooting, I figured out the problem....for some reason my bluetooth was using the same COMM port as the GPS reciever so for now I just dumped the bluetooth stuff and the GPS works fine
After getting the GPS reciever working though, I've run into another problem. The reciever does not get a signal if sitting on the car dash or stuck to the wind sheild, but does get a signal if outside the car. So I'm thinking about just putting the reciever on the roof of my Jeep. Anybody know if these things are weather resistant?
