RE: Producing a GPS output

Yes you need to wire cable with connections to pins 2 & 3 reversed between ends, so 2->3 & 3->2. If you check with a meter/continuity tester you will probably find pin 2->2 & pin 3->3 at present which is why it won't work for your purpose. You can either find a way (chop off one end & connect to ano...

RE: Producing a GPS output

If you have a female to female dSub 9 pin cable to connect the two PC's, check the data in/out connections. It should be wired as null modem cable. Pin 2 is data in, Pin 3 data out, so the connector at source PC running GpsGate, should have its pin 3 connected to pin 2 at the receiving end & vice ve...

RE: GpsGate and Garmin GPSmap 78

Yes the drives you see when you connect via USB are simply the storage areas (for charts) on your Garmin showing up as mass storage devices under Windows. The NMEA output you need will likely be from the round 4 pin connector. Check with Garmin, they will probably offer a cable to connect to this wi...

RE: GpsGate and Garmin GPSmap 78

GPSmap 78 provides NMEA 0183 output so yes it should work with GpsGate.

RE: buffering data

Surely it depends if the live feed is in series with buffer & therefore delayed by buffer length as you suggest, or in parallel with buffer, in which case there will be no delay.

OK go to Control Panel>Device Manager. Look under following headers to see the COM/serial ports allocated below COM6: Modems - look in device itself and click on Modem tab to see COM port allocated. Mice & and other pointing devices Ports (COM & LPT) Look specifically for any COM port that has yello...

RE: vertual ports not available

Read the topic four below on COM port enumeration. Even just checking with Device Manager may reveal what ports are already in use & therefore unavailable.

RE: virtual ports

Create as many virtual COM port outputs as you need in GpsGate. Each should show running correctly. Change GPS input settings in each application to connect to one of the (virtual) COM ports - separate port for each app but obviously not COM 5 which is in use feeding GpsGate. Note some old apps will...

RE: Fails to create virtual serial port

Did you read and act on the sticky regarding virtual port driver on Vista 64 bit systems?

It applies to Windows 7 x64 as well!

Note COM 3 is often pre-assigned to built-in modem - check with Device Manager.

RE: [Q]: Internetconnection when GpsGate starts

On my Nokia N97 I can configure both Assisted (cell tower) & Network (Internet) based assistance for GPS fix, so that is almost certainly the answer.

RE: Set input/output to different Baud rates

I think the buffer limitation would be on the software connected to virtual port. GpsGate will pass data as received.

RE: NMEA -> Wifi

GpsGate can easily be set to output your NMEA via TCP/IP but you would need a suitable server to receive & forward it. As a feasibility study you could set up GpsGate on your PC to output NMEA to your free account at gpsgate.com (gpsgate.com (Send) option). Your mobile device also running GpsGate (i...

RE: How to configure new setup

With your USB-COM port adaptor plugged in & relevant drivers installed, go to Control Panel>Device Manager & look under "Ports (COM & LPT)" heading. There you should see your device listed with a COM port number assignment. If not then your adaptor is not installed properly. Assuming you find it lis...
