I bought a GPSlim 236 and the us cable for it. It seems that it needs to use a baud rate of 38400, But SD doesn't Support it. Any Ideas?
I was able to make it work by using GPSgate , but I really don't want to spend $40 to fix the problem.
I guess I need to reword it. The 236 with the cable MUST use 38400. Thats what it is designed for, and it creates gibberish otherwise.

While GPSGate seems pretty cool.... I really dont want to spend the $... or for that matter, run yet another app....
I had the same problem. You can use GPSGate which will create a virtual com port and filter the incoming data to 4800 baud. There is no advantage for having the higher baud so I don't know why they did it.
The nice thing about GPS gate is that it can duplicate the information and send it to another real or virtual com port. I have it going to my Bluetooth dongle to send the GPS feed to my PDA phone so that I can check on traffic. I won't digress again into the fact that the SD traffic mod probably will never be released.
Understand all that about gpsgate.... do you have one of hte older versions that didnt cost any $??
YOu can use the command line parameter -GPSBaud:<Baud Rate> to force a baudrate to use in StreetDeck.
Hmmm... great idea, but not working.
can you run streetdeck with the -verbose command and post the log? that will make it alot easier to find the problem..

yeah, I might be able to pull that off.... Will be about 2 hours before I can get it (lunchtime)
