    Holux GPS Trouble

    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.

    Try 4800
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    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.

    YOu can use the command line parameter -GPSBaud:<Baud Rate> to force a baudrate to use in StreetDeck.

    can you run streetdeck with the -verbose command and post the log? that will make it alot easier to find the problem..
