Problems with CF-29 and internal GPS connecting
« on: March 21, 2008, 07:06:42 PM »
Hi,

I got my CF-29 and it has a stock GPS with it. I noticed I am having some issues with it. While it works with TF when activated it doesnt seem to initialize the GPS correctly.

Basically I try to see if its connecting and track position, but I sends me to Africa and never connects properly, YET when I use MS Roads & trips and connect the GPS with that problem its fine, then I can exit out of that program and use TF with No issues on Tracking.

I have tried version 3.12-23 and they all still have a problem

I have it set to the NMEA/Magellan Baud 4800 and Com3 which is the GPS setting com port.

Any Ideas, should I send the GPS drivers to you as they are the same for all CF-29 GPS units.

Basically its a minor glitch but still a pain when trying to connect, also MS Roads and trips shows the Sats connecting and how many which is nice to know I am even connecting a signal, it says if its recieved info, TF doesnt.

Please help if possible.

If anyone else has a CF-29 with internal GPS please Post.

Krein

Let's see, if it's ending up in Africa is it possible the sign on the longitude is just flipped?

Strange that going in to MS streets and trips "fixes" it.  My guess is that I can debug this if you just have it sit trying to track for a minute or two and then send me the resulting log file.  I believe there is debug info still present in the log file.

Thanks.

Hi did you get my Email? I sent you the log file while trying to get it to connect to the GPS without going to MS trips first.
