I have tried both my Garmin 12 and my GPSIII (Both using the same Computer w/Vista OS, Garmin serial cable, Belkin Serial-USB adapter) and they produce the same results.
I don't have any trouble connecting and downloading my way points (with either gps) from the GPS/GPS Transfer (GPS config set to:Older Garmin Serial / Com port 1 / 9600).
I'm not having the same luck with the GPS/Live Tracking, With the configuration set up to match the GPS/GPS Transfer configuration all of the lights on the Belkinn adpter flash once and nothing happens.
If I set the GPS's to "NMEA/NMEA" and the GPS Live Tracking to NMEA/com port 1/9600 (setting it to 4800 makes no difference). I do get the running man showing my location but he is about 100 yards east of were he should be on the map (It's off on all of the maps and pics, and in proportion to the map size) plus the Elevation box in the Real Time GPS Tracking page stays at 0ft.
The Magellan configuration for:GPS/GPS Transfer (GPS config set to:Magellan/ Com port 1 / 9600) gets the Belkin lights flashing but nothing downloads. Hey I thought it was worth trying.
So my questions are:
1. Why won't the same configuration work for both tabs? (I have to shut down and disconnect everything reconfigure the GPS and the TopoFusion configurations then reconnect and restart everything each time I want to change from GPS Transfer to Live Tracking and again when I want to go back back!)
2. How do I get the location indicator (running man) to match the location on the maps?
3. How do I get the elevation to show on the Real Time GPS Tracking page?
I did search the forums and have answered most of my questions, so now these are the few remaining issues I can't figure out on my own.
