ALK CoPilot Laptop 10 with Bluetooth GPS lags a thousand feet
OneRVer
I use Co-Pilot 2003 and love it. Bought Co-pilot V-10 with Bluetooth GPS. Not sure why, but I would get a delayed signal from the Bluetooth, and I would be one thousand feet past my turn when I would get the arrow to turn. Other times no problem. But to many times I had to rely on the street sign. I now have Windows 7, 64 bit. When version 8 is released I will go back with the USB connection.

I did like the Bluetooth when it worked. Put the sensor in the window and the wife could set behind me and give me direction. But got to the point that I could no longer depend on the Bluetooth signal.

I am new to this site and do not know if I posted this in the right place.

I can't speak for the Bluetooth unit that comes with ALK but it certainly is not the case with the Bluetooth GPS I have. They behave exactly as the USB GPS devices used with a variety of navigation programs (I don't have any ALK products). Maybe it is a problem with the software.

I just assumed it was the GPS because the problem would come and go, as well as getting worse the more I used it. But now I have Windows 7, 64 bit so I can not use it anyway. I sure hope version 8 is a winner. Now that I have the Bluetooth built in to my laptop I might give it another try.

Just an update. Since I have upgraded to ALK V8 and a new laptop this problem is no longer a problem. So It was either the bluetooth software, the old laptop or V-10. Don't know, don't care. All is well.
