    Holux GPS on COM7, not workink with dest3 frontend...

    Hi everybody...

    I'm using a holux GM210 usb GPS receiver... running Win2000 professional and Destinator 3 frontend... My GPS is mapped to COM port #7, so destinator does not find any GPS, as it only allows selection up to COM5, which are already mapped to other devices... I've tried to manually edit the port value on the cfg file... but it was useless.... I've also tried a ChangeCOM utillity I found to swap ports but it's unable to write new values to the registry....I'm starting to lose my nerve...So please... if any of you have experienced this Issue and have found any turnaround to solve it, any suggestions will be most appreciated...

    First of all I finally switched to mapmonkey to see if it could solve some issues I was experiencing.

    After unchecking advanced gps it all worked fine... though in NMEA mode at 4800 bps.. and no speed cam alerts at all.... The point for buying the holux was to switch to SIRF, and it just can't be done

    Besides Destinator ran embedded with mediacar allowing to start from the GPS button... Using the exact same configuration with mapmonkey I haven't been able to make mapmonkey run embedded...

    I suspect the bluetooth device to be the reason for these nuissances... I'll uninstall drivers and bluetooth stack and reinstall the GPS.

    @Laidback... Than would be nice man! BTW what's your GC colour like? I wonder if we shared morning traffic jams at the "Castellana". I see very often a GC with GB plates...

    We're currently planning a carputing "kedada" of all spanish carputing maniacs in Madrid...so I'll keep you informed in case you want to attend such event.

    There's no problem with switching the GM210 to SiRF!?
    Use the 'SiRF-Demo' to switch ur device between NMEA and SiRF!
    In MM use 'advanced gps' and all works great in SiRF-Mode!!!!

    No, not me! I had to get a Spanish registered one.

    Yeah, keep me informed of the kedada, give me a chance to practice my Spanglish!

    Hi!

    So finally you've been forced to re-laterallize your brain (left steering wheel...driving on the right lane...) and start thinking in metrics rather than in the Imperial measuring system... That's gotta be tough man!!! Driving in the UK would certainly be a nightmare for me...

    Regarding the "kedada" Consider it done... as soon as we have date and place I'll pm you... in the meantime you can stay tuned with the spanish carputing scene in www.solocarputer.com

    Greetz.
