t923347, in your instructions
I have realized that on my Windows 7 netbook, I needed to leave the GPS in diagnostic mode for Win7 to install the driver and display that it is ready to use. Streets and Trips 2010 recognizes this as a GPS after configuring with GPSGate however, I am stuck with a "searching for sat" and an eventual error message that non enough data could be collected.
- Turn on the Nuvi without connecting the USB cable to the PC.
- Enter diagnostic mode by pressing the icon of the battery for about 10 seconds.
- As you enter the diagnostic screen, connect the USB cable and then exit the screen by pressing "Exit". Wait for the installation of the driver by Windows (the first time takes a while).
I want to confirm that when using a Garmin 1490 as a GPS receiver, you remain in diagnostic mode. I ask this because if I click exit after connecting to the PC, upon exiting the diagnostic screen, my netbook will disconnect as a GPS and reconnect upon the GPS restarting in normal PC mode (similar to a flash drive). This is what leads me to believe that you must remain in diagnostic mode to use the GPS as a receiver for Streets and Trips. Please advise! Does anyone have any suggestions to make this work. Nuvi 1490 appears to be completely compatible with Streets and Trips 2010.
