+Amazon Annie Posted August 10, 2003 Share Posted August 10, 2003 I just bought my first GPS and I am having troubles already! I installed Mapsend and when I tried to connect to my SporTrak it finds it okay (using Autodetect) but when I click "Test" it responds with "Busy" on the COM port. I'm using Win XP and can connect using EasyGPS and I connected to upgrade the firmware... I have done the following: Upgraded the Magellan software to v4.06 Uninstalled the COM port and reinstalled it Made sure there isn't anything else trying to use that COM port Shut off all software (Anti-virus etc) Made sure the Baud rates match on both the computer and the GPS Turned off NMEA Uninstalled and reinstalled MapSend Walked around in circles and almost tore hair out Wore out batteries trying to get this thing working Any suggestions? I send a note to Magellan support too. Trying to cover all my bases. [This message was edited by 1Short on August 10, 2003 at 03:37 PM.] Quote Link to comment
