    Acquiring Sattelites problem in Mapmonkey

    I just installed Mapmonkey on my car PC. The GPS was found in Mapmonkey (COM1 38400 NMEA), but it doesnt function because it is "acquiring satellites" constantly

    What did I wrong?

    Well, it takes a WHILE to acquire sattelites for the first time.

    Seems a bit much. Put the receiver on the roof. Also, I'd try to change the bitrate to 4800.

    After having my carputer out of action for a few months...it took around 2 days before my bu-303 could get over 4 satellites. After that it takes around 20-30 seconds.

    Strange but true!

    Quite odd indeed, this happend to me, i left it on over night and it then found a sat! I had also installed destinator front end and it worked in that, so i thought id try map monkey again and it worked! I not sure whats going on there but it seems to work now! I basically installed both and its now working!

    Cant wait to for them to send me the SDK so i can get out in the car and test it properly!
