I have a big question about BU-353 (USB GPS receiver)
When I am using laptop with GPS, it doesn’t work very well. When I used integrated GPS in a car it worked just good, but laptop + GPS set, doesn’t work as smooth as car unit. The problem is, laptop + GPS set works very slow, it looks like there is time delay (~5 sec) between what is happening on the road and what I see on the screen.
After reading this thread, I’ve found that USB unit works worst then serial unit (BU-355), but does it really that bad?
My question is: is my problem in USB? I have no other trouble except this “slow real-time” response.
Or maybe my laptop is too slow?
1st: Acer Celeron M 1.5 Ghz, 768Mb RAM, Intel graphics 128 MB, WinXP SP2 MS Streets and Trips 2006.
2nd: Dell P2 650 Mhz, 512 Mb RAM ATI Mobile 8 MB, Win2000 SP4 MS Streets and Trips 2006.
Two laptops with same problem.
Or is it buggy software: MS Streets and Trips 2006?
If some one is using similar configuration please post here, what you experience with this BU-353?
I am thinking that my receiver is defected and maybe I should exchange USB with Serial type, Help me please.
