GPS USB Dongle
Luigi
Hello, I am new in this forum, and I want to know if any of you used this GPS on a netbook. I bought it a week ago and I have some problems to run it. I installed in a PC with Windows XP and it works OK.

Sorry for my English and thanks.

May I ask what make and model of your usb GPS dongle, make and model of netbook and software program? It really is needed to help you.

Also maybe helpful to give the general area you live.

Oh, welcome to the forum!

Sorry, Thats right, but it uses an nRoute soft for this.

nRoute only understands Garmin protocol, not NMEA protocol.

If you want to use a GPS receiver that gives NMEA protocol with nRoute you must use a program named GPSGate Express. This will read the NMEA protocol from the GPS receiver and translate it to Garmin protocol to send to nRoute.

GPSGate is shareware but it has a 14 day free trial so you can try it to see if it is what you need.
