    Port-Splitter (Other then xport)?

    Hi everyone!

    I just have a simple little question, I need some kind of portsplitter, freeware ofcourse... I've tried Xport but have been having some issues with it, the port not showing, getting disconnected etc and I want my system to be stable...

    Any suggestion?

    GPSGate
    It's what I use, and works rather well.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Yeah that looks real nice... just to bad it's a 14 day trial, but I guess if I want anything that works flawless I need to buy it...

    Downloaded GPSGate to and will give them both a try... gpsgate wasn't freeware either so I'll have to try it before I decide...

    I thought GPSGate had a bunch more features. There is a new smaller version of XPort out though. Not much smaller. But if the port doesn't show up I don't think either one will be able to find it.

    Edit: Just downloaded GPSGate. GPSGate uses 8~10MB and XPort uses 3~4MB. That's nothing. Neither one of them uses much at all. GPSGate has lots of converters, a logger and simulator built in so it's going to use a little more.

    I got GPSGate for free when I bought my BU-353.
    It workes fine in my setup and didn't cost me anythying, so I've never needed to look into xPort or any similar apps.

    One thing I like about it is that I get a tray icon that gives me a visual indication of whether my GPS has a lock or not if I'm not in my front-end. I don't know if any of the other apps have this or not, but it's damn handy!
