Hi, i have a wayway gps, but i cant seemed to use the gpsscan_debug. i load it to the GPS and the error msg --- cant run. is not a win 32 application. please help!
It would seem that you are trying to run gpsscan_debug.exe on your PC. That won't work. You need to copy the gpsscan_debug.exe to your sd card and execute it with wince. To do that you will have to use cecmd, explorer, or have a gps menuing system that allows you to modify the navigation path. Since wince is slow, it will take a while to go through all combinations of ports and baudrates, so be patient, it will take a few minutes for the port and baudrate information to be displayed on the screen
[QUOTE=aussiepaul;140004]Ok the program told me port 1 and baud 4800
set it all as such still no satelite signals[/QUOTE
The GPS will take a lot longer to find a satellite the first time, because it does no know where on the earth it is located, so it has no idea idea where to look for a satellite signal. Take your gps outside where it has a clear shot at the open sky and leave it for an hour. Then check to see if it has acquired a lock.
This is how the info should appear in your sys.txt.
hi there, i'm using papago r6100 model. i hv copied the gpsscan_debug.exe to sd card, but the problem is how to use the cecmd? do u i need to download & copy into sd card? pls help. thanks
It's hard to say how to run a file on your particular gps, because they're all different , and different techniques work on different devices. One of the easy ways to get to the wince desktop is to create a text file at the root of your sd card called explorer.atr. In this file you want to type one word "explorer", without the quotes, on the first line, and then save it to the root of your sd card. Now put the sd card in your device and restart it. If your lucky, this process will bring up the wince desktop, and you can start "My Device" to browse to gpsscan_debug.exe and start it. Once you start the file, it could take as long as 5 minutes for it to access your ports and return the information. If that doesn't work, you try something else.
