GPS Receivers supported
  • Hello, I'm currently playing around with NF and it's fun.
    I've attached my Garmin Etrex GPS as the GPS receiver, but NF is unable to detect it.
    Is this device supported ?
    if not, what GPS receivers are ?

  • I think you need a special cable, may be this will help
  • Tomas might I ask if Navigator 11 supports Navilock GPS reciever?
    I have a USB version of a external navilock which I can get a fix on its software. So I know it works.
    However when trying to configure via Navigator 11 interface, it doesn't find it on port 3. It's on port 3 I know that from the software that came with it.

    Kind regards MarcoS
  • navilock used to be our German distributor, so I would say yes
  • Hi Marcos,

    I have a NL-402U works super.

  • I have a GlobalSat SiRF STAR III CompactFlash GPS attached to a Dell Axim X51v and, while I can test the GPS and find satellites, etc, Navigator Free does not allow me to find a GPS receiver at Com 4. It just scans a limited number of Com ports none of which is Com 4
  • The devices you propose on your web site have always a USB port. How that works ? I have Royaltek GPS receiver which works with Bluetooth. So, why a USB port, for which use ?
    And there is no price and details for the first in the list.

  • If you have Bluetooth on your device it should work also with Royaltek GPS
  • I would like to try another receiver, one of your GPS receivers for example. So, why is there a USB port on your receivers ? Is it a simple Bluetooth adaptator or a GPS receiver without Bluetooth ? I don't understand...

    And what is the price of the first in the list ?
