    GPS port number?

    I did some searching on this beforehand, but I'm not confident in the information I found.

    I'm running a Deluo USB GPS receiver along with Mappoint 2004 software, and I'd like to make sure I get the port setting right. From the link at the bottom of my post, I read that port "7" is what you need to use, but I wasn't sure if that went for USB devices as well, or if it mattered at all.

    Also, do I need to downloaded MapMonkey in order for my GPS to work alongside MapPoint, or what is the benefit to running them both?

    Rr Gps Port Setting Help For Mappoint And Map Monkey??

    The port number will depend on which USB socket you have it plugged into, check in device manager-->ports

    NO

    Mappoint may have different functions that mapmonkey does not or vice versa, or the maps may be better in one than the other for your area.

    Try them both and see.

    Great answers, thanks for the help.

    Another quick question (not as crucial) about MapMonkey, since this search turned up huge numbers without much drilled down on what I'm looking for... The MapMonkey.exe file is only 16MB, is this really a complete mapping/GPS program on its own?

    Nope, you need to buy D3 maps as well.

    I'd just came back to edit my post, that information was on the mapmonkey FAQ. Thanks anyway Gobby.
