    Fresh RR install + working GPS = Need help getting weather info to show up

    Hey everyone! I just installed RR and need some help getting the weather info populated at all. Currently I have installed the BU-353 USB GPS Receiver and verified that it is functional with the utility that came with it. I need some guidance on how to get the GPS and Ride Runner to talk. I have already setup RRconfig to read the correct com port. Also have downloaded zips.dat and placed it in the Program Files\ride runner folder.

    Running Windows 7 32bit SP1
    No AV or anything else installed that could be conflicting (that I know about)

    Am I missing something? Any guidance would be appreciated.

    RR Weather does not need GPS, it needs internet. Using a gps will only allow you to load weather based off of your gps position, but you still need internet.

    I was able to get the weather to show last night. I had to follow this guide to get the weather to show.

    My question is will it automatically change as I drive through different Cities? given there is an active internet connection AND gps signal?

    I don't think it will automatically change. You could create a button to refresh the weather with a command that will set the location to your gps position. I think you need the GPS to city app.
