    Parameter Incorrect... Navigation

    When I enter Navigation... I get the typical "acquiring" or whatever message saying that yes, I am looking for the GPS module and/or signal... then however I get this dreaded message in a separate window... that unfortunately never want to go away...stating something about "Parameter Incorrect... etc" The damned thing just seems to cycle around and around... even if I press the "OK" part of it , it refuses to stop.... I basically have to pull the power cord on the CPU to reset this nightmare.... and ideas????????? anyone.......

    Did you change your settings for the com port in streetdeck for the gps or in windows? If not, try changing the com port to the sim file to rule out software vs hardware issue.

    Info on the type of GPS hardware you're using would be helpful as well.

    I use the Delorme Earthmate USB, which requires that the COM port be set in StreetDeck AND also set in a seperate downloaded utility from Delorme for the Earthmate AND that the GPS be plugged into the same (physically the same) USB port every time.

    I'm using the USGlobalSat BU-353, from MP3Car.com, as a GPS receiver... How does one pull a event log? Do I have to set this up when Streetdeck starts, or is an event log created each time Streetdeck starts... The interesting thing about this is that the GPS Digital Mod, reports that the GPS is receiving satellites and displays a current heading... in fact if I start the Digital Mod before I start driving, it displays my current heading and speed correctly.... Telling me that the GPS is working and that Streedeck is reading the GPS... However forget about the Navigation part... thats where the "Parameter Incorrect" comes in...

    Should I use the "-verbose" command when I start Streetdeck, or is this log file created regardless? I will look for it tomorrow... Bothering me the most though is the fact that the DigitalMod for GPS Status is reading and relaying GPS data, however Streetdeck goes ballistic when I try to go into Navigation.........

    you might as well, it will just post more info than the normal log.

    you have gone into the settings and made sure it's all correct in there, correct? Made sure to check the entire list of settings? Not just the first page of them that come up?

    Added the log file from the directory as you've suggested... thanks... I looked through it.. like I really know what I'm looking at???? Anyways maybe you or someone on the forum can make some sense of it.... I am still contemplating on either reloading the 1.06 Update and/or just pull the image of the 1.059 to see if my problem goes away with this Nav issue.. mind you the GPS Status is working fine and receiving data from what I've seen from up to at most 9 satellites!!!!!

    Please run with the command line option of -verbose before uploading the log file.
