Ok I finnaly got the iGuidance 4 and it works like a charm, im speechless lol...
Then again I got another question regarding the GPS data. Im using Xport to split my COM ports and it works perfectly. Where can we specify the COM port for the GAUGES page? I checked the help file but I didnt get it to work!
Thanks for help!
That gauages screen uses the GPS data from RR. If that is not working then RR is not receiving the gps data. Recheck your RR/xport settings
I understand that, my COM port is set in RRconfig and my GPS is working flawless. I get all the data in the GPS info without efforts. But when I go in Gauges....nothing.

Anybody know why my GAUGES still doesnt work even if my GPS is working in RR ??
Hi again,thanks everyone here for all your help.but i still have issues. I have iGuidance working great but when i turn on carpc from hibernation the GPS does not seem like it's working (direction pointer not green) an gauges not doing anything either. plus my mp3's won't play at all. after reboot ,everything is back to normal.is there something i'm missing here in setup? also i notice that my gps receiver stays blinking (red led indicator) after i hibernate or shut down pc.Is this normal ? The red led indicator should stop blinking right? I asked this before but.......
You might want to try and older version of xport, some versions work better for some than other versions.
And you GPS receiver is fine if it still blinks after you hib, this just means that it is still being powered and has sats locked, it doesn't req that much power at all, so don't really worry about it draining anything. It also helps when you come out of hib as it won't be a cold start to lock sats either.
i used the newest one on xport site,now i'm using the one provided in dfx 3.0. what version should i be using? thanx.
Just check which ver he includes with the install and it looks like an older one like the one that i use.
Do you see the Lat,Lon,Alt,Spd labels being updated in that screen(Gauges)?
oh yeah i see it active, but sometimes from hib nothing is active . lat,lon,alt etc. and gps pointer not active green. and it must be an older xport because ya' don't have the options to check you hubs,etc. in a list.thanx again.
Never mind guys I FINALLY FIND WHAT WAS MY ERROR!!!!!!

I post this because Im surely not the only one!!!
But that was just too funny... :rofl:
Glad to see that you did figure it out and got it working, though!
I will also add that to the next config update, to only accept numbers for the port number..
