It's what I use, and works rather well.
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...
The ultimate CarPC - Wow!
I used xport for years, find GPSgate way better. much smaller memory usage
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!
