nRoute, Garmin GPS 18 USB, GPS Gate issue on my 32 bit system
JDJ
I know nroute is no longer supported by Garmin, and now Microsoft refuses to fix their "licensing and initialization" error in Map Point, so I have reverted back to nroute. I have loaded an old version of Garmin maps, and nroute 276. I have a Garmin GPS 18 usb antenna, and the maps come up, but as soon as the gps locks, so do the maps. I know GPSGATE is supposed to fix this problem, but it only works on 64 bit systems. Mine is a 32 bit. Is there anything that will work with a 32 bit system?

It's been a long time since I used this. Isn't GPSGate Client what you need? There seem to be plenty of old versions of GPSGate available at archive.org

https://web.archive.org/web/20111101000000*/https://gpsgate.com/download

For example, here's a snapshot from July 2011

Can't remember whether I actually purchased my copy, it was many years ago, but it works on 32 bit Windows 7. Apparently they made it free in April 2011. See this

The links in that article just take you to the current GPSGate download page, which is why I went to archive.org.

What makes you think it is only 64 bit?

The version I found must be the latest. When I tried to install it I got an error message that said it only worked on a 64 bit system, and the install aborted. What version would be the best?

GPS Gate Splitter which is free and doesn't specify bittedness.

Thanks tcassidy.

Also, if you are still considering S&T, you should read this thread.

Hey - I just learned a new word!

My guess is that he was trying to install GPSGate Server....

Yep, I'm flying blind here. I don't know the difference between the server and the splitter. I was trying to load the server.
JDJ
What a difference it makes to load the right program. I was told I needed GPSGate, so I downloaded the first one I found,..which was the server. Just loaded the splitter and I'm up and running. And like Boyd,...I learned a new word, bittedness.

Thanks guys!

Yep.
In case the OP did not do that yet, IMO, he should.
Looks like that approach works with MapPoint too.
tcassidy
Anybody that can get the job done with nRoute certainly doesn't need Mappoint. S&T will do fine.
