    Comport 5 is not acessable with RR open

    Hi all,

    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.

    Any suggestions?

    Open RRConfig and make sure the GPS com port in there is not set to com 5. EDIT: set it to something that does not exist in your setup like com 0

    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 ....

    Yeah I had never used SA before and I had a gift certificate to Bestbuy and it was the only GPS software they had, so I went for it. Now I'm gonna try to deal with it the best I can. Looks good but the buttons are soo damn small! I'm sure it works really nicely on a 17" laptop monitor. My 7" lilli hates it tho, especially after being skinbedded in the LSXVOID 1.5 skin (hot skin btw). Voice recognition works nicely ....
