ASYNC and eTrex by Antonio Tabernero Galan
Carsten Kurz wrote: I'm just trying to log some data using async and an eTrex (2.09 european version). I get about 50 failed reads in 2700 packets and the logging stops, using async t- 900 -rinex option. What can be the reason? The Async website quotes async 1.23 to be the most current version, but the start header of the dos/windows executable says: async version 1.21.

ASYNC and eTrex by Carsten Kurz
I think I recall vaguely some earlier discussions of eTrex comms speed and lost data problems, in which the problem wasn't the eTrex, it was the host not being able to keep up with the data rate. Switching to a host with better comms resulted in clean data. Don't know. Some eTrex units, especially those with WAAS enabled, seem to have communication problems using NMEA, but this doesn't...

ASYNC and eTrex by Carsten Kurz
It could be. Try alkaline batteries in the GPS. Maybe the voltage of the RS-232 is too low for your port. I don't think so. I never have any problems using NMEA or W/R/T transfers with Garmin protocol. But mostly this happens when the GPS cannot push the data out fast enough. Some kind of internal bufferoverflow maybe? Try option -rinex2 and then the effect would be much worse (at...

Rino 120 and WAAS by Carsten Kurz
Mark Wilson schrieb: It is not worded very well, but they may be referring to a situation where you have double coverage from WAAS or EGNOS GEO satellites. I believe EGNOS only has one satellite so it doesn't apply. For WAAS, the CONUS approximately West of the Rocky Mountains has double coverage - POR and AOR-W visibility. It is possible that the GEOs could be transmitting It's...

Garmin 45 by Dave Martindale
"dick" writes: Is it possible to flash the firmware on a garmin 45? I don`t see a update listed but there is one for a 48, has anyone tried that on a 45? It won't work. I believe that the 45 (and 45XL) have their firmware in ROM and it can't be upgraded. The GPS 12XL, the first 12-channel unit, was also the first Garmin handheld with the firmware in flash RAM so it could...

Voice AutoRouting kits for iPaq H3970 Pocket-PC, choices?? by Bill Middleton
Hi Jim, don't like to burst your bubble but CoPilot and Navman Europe maps don't cover Turkey, Greece or Egypt - in fact none of the iPAQ GPS packages do as far as I know - some of the large Car rental companies (Hertz, Avis etc.) may offer In-Car units for these countries but you will need to check out their websites.

Help with Delorme GPS to Serial settings. by ron
I apologise that this is out of topic. I am trying to get a comm setting using the Delorme gps to serial drivers on a Averatec notebook running Windows XP. When I look under Human Interface Devices, I see something like "device 0" but nothing that would translate into a comm port. My notebook doesn't have comm ports, (except for the built in modem on Comm 3) so I am trying to figure out what...

Voice AutoRouting kits for iPaq H3970 Pocket-PC, choices?? by Keith
Talk about being tossed a tough one! An Australian executive colleague of mine announced that he wants me to choose an AutoRouting Kit for his Pocket-PC (iPaq H3970 BlueTooth) for his imminent car travels in USA and Europe. I'm pretty sure that TravRoute Co-Pilot is the only choice here in Aus (with NavMan available soon). Are either of these good choices in USA and Europe, or would he be...

Israel on board for Galileo by Carsten Kurz

Simultaneously, a network of ground stations will be deployed to provide high-quality signal reception in cities - a weak point for GPS, which needs a direct line of sight between the user and satellite. Does anyone know what that means? Marketing bull****? "An argument has broken out between two leading EU members - Germany
