GpsGate slowing updates

Thu Nov 06, 2008 7:21 pm

I've been testing out Garmin MobilePC with a 5hz gps unit (Itrek M7). It can connect via usb or bluetooth. When I conect to GMPC via GpsGate using usb the mapping/position data seems to update a lot slower (1 per sec) compared to directly connecting using via bluetooth (seems to be the correct 5 updates per sec)

Is there a setting I have missed in GpsGate to pass on the 5hz updates?

As stated above I am not using a garmin usb reciver. I am using a Itrek M7 reciver with garmin software...

You have provided a link for when using a garmin usb reciver?

cletusb - please read Johan's link again. It quite clearly states that the info refers to ANY GPS device that has a fast data stream. Setting PvtInterval to 5000 should fix your problem although it can't be higher than the GPS device output rate.

I'm sorry from my reading the link only refers to the input of "Garmin USB" selected from the input tab...

How does this relate to my gps unit as I connect it through the COM port input

The link above was actually regarding having a Garmin USB as input...

The Garmin emulator (output) is restricted to 1Hz, and that is why you get what you get...

Is this the same for the standard virtual com port output?

Can this restricted output be changed on either the garmin emulation or virtual com (if virtual com is restricted)?

For a normal Virtual port without a filter/emulator, this is not the case.

Your feedback about a higher frequency for Garmin Emulator output has been received. We'll see what we can do about this in coming updates of GpsGate.
