When I open RR my gps software (Street Atlas 2006) is unable to open comport 5 for my gps. With RR closed it works fine. I am using the LSX VOID 1.5 skin.
There are also applications available to "share" your GPS info with multiple applications. If you ask me, street atlas is down there with the worst GPS applications, but I guess we can't discuss taste. In anyway, I'd suggest you look up Xport (free app to share GPS between apps). It's either that or set the GPS port to 0 in RRConfig -- you won't notice any difference if you're not using any GPS based features in RR.
Thanks Guino. I did not realize it could be set to 0.
I <3 JimmyFitz and Guino. My com port was set to 5 in rrconfig. After I changed things worked perfectly. I always hate the ones where I feel retarded afterwards ....
