Hi - I have a magellan SporTrak Pro that I want to use simply as an input device for MS MapPoint '06. The GPS is not seen by MP on com port 1 however all features work fine with Magellan's Topo software and I can both Up / Down load to it. In other words magellan software sees the magellan unit but MS MP won't. Tech guy (level 1 I'm sure) at Magellan sez it won't work but I don't like that answer - all I want is an input and it *should* be just a hardware / connectivity issue...Right? It just a serial device!?
Anybody know any tweaks for the SportTrak that'll allow me to use it? MS makes a version of the software that includes a GPS reciever but I didn't buy it coz I already have one that *should* be compatable (nmea 2). What would prevent it from being seen as a simple input device??
