Windows 10 Tablet - Want GPS

Start with looking at the output of GPS Gate. It will tell you which COM ports have been created to use. If it is the free version, there are only 2 ports. Pick one and set up GPS Complete to use that and the other can be used for any one other navigating program you want to try.

I have just gone through setting up GPS Complete so if you need help with it, I can help. I do have one computer it won't work on but I don't yet know why.

I have found trying to set up GPS Gate and GPS Complete is difficult in Tablet mode. Although I set them up on a tablet, I turned off tablet mode before starting. Also, you need the GPS Complete executable to set up GPS Direct. To do that, I saved the download before running it. Then dragged a shortcut from the Downloads folder to the desktop for easy access. Others may know an easier way but that is what I did.

terry, i uninstalled everything and reinstalled, and its working straight away after i did this, its also working on mapfactor (from the windows store) ill go out for a drive later, do i need to buy the full gps gate app to keep it?

i take it there is no way what soever to get this to work with google maps on windows?

Make sure it is not just your wifi.

The basic version of GPS Gate is fine if you only need 2 COM ports. It should do everything you need.
