Earth Bridge and BU-353 error: Output directory does not exist
ben2go
I got everything set up but I get "Output Directory Does Not Exist". I check all the settings in Earth Bridge and the BU-353. Everything matches. What could be the issue?

I am not familiar with using EarthBridge with Google but the message sounds like EarthBridge wants you to create a folder for its output. This should not be necessary just to watch the BU-353 signal though. Did you ask EarthBridge to create a log or track?

Try unchecking Start generating KML output on the Preferences tab or change the folder location at the top to one you have.

Thanks. I feel like a dumb@$$. I had read that in another thread but it just didn't click in my head.

Now my issue is my location. It's showing that I am off the north west coast of Africa and I am sitting in my home near the SC/NC state line in norther Spartanburg county.

Does the GPS Status tab show a fix has been obtained? I just installed Google Earth and clicked on Reload in Google Earth on the KML Output Settings tab and it found me ok.

tcassidy,

Yes, I found the issue. In Google Earth, the box to the right with places, I had a box checked named "Real Time GPS". I don't know if that came on when I updated GE or if it happened when I installed the software for my BU-353. I think there may have been a conflict between GE and Earth Bridge, while the "Real Time GPS" box was checked in GE. I'm not really sure.


I did a 15 mile round trip last night after getting everything going. I set it up so my track was recorded.The line that follows my track was very broken and always way left of my actually track. If I turn or drive down a road, it shows me about 30m to the left. I thought is was kind of amusing. Look Ma, I can drive on water!

I'm still playing with the settings and doing more searching on here and the net. Not much out there and Google search keeps bringing me back here.

That's great to know! Google is doing the right thing!

Yep this is the place! At least some of the folks here know what they're talking about. Other sites are really off the wall.
