Will Street Atlas work with 38400 baud rate GPS receiver?

I have a Vista Toshiba laptop and a Holux 240 GPS receiver set up with the USB/serial adapter cable. Streets and Trips 2009 won't look at it, as it does not appear to want to default to 4800 baud, and possibly NMEA output.

The set up works fine for Teletype mapping at 38400 baud, but S&T seems to want 4800 baud. What am I missing here?

Unfortunately, you are not missing anything. S&T is one of the mapping programs that will not accept data at more than 4800 bps. The Holux output to USB/ serial is fixed at 38,400 bps. You can get around that by routing the signal through GPS Gate or by using the Bluetooth output of the Holux.

Why is this thread in SA? It will support 38,400 as will Mobile PC and iGuidance

Terry, Fair Question! What I omitted saying was that I wanted to Know if Street Atlas would work at 38400. Looks like I buy a copy of Street Atlas tomorrow.

By the way what is a source for GPS gate?

GPS Gate is available as a 14 day free trial from Franson

Please note that SA uses in-house map development facilities rather than Navteq products. S&T, iGuidance and Mobile PC all use Navteq.
