GPS problems

Once I used my PGS mouse on a Linux machine. I connected the mouse through GPSD. So far so good, but ............. after that my GPS mouse dit not work anymore on a Windows machine .

I contacted the manufacturer USGlobalsat and they gave me this solution:

Linux has GPSD which switches your BU-353S4 from NMEA to Binary everytime you plug in your device.
In order for this to stop happening everytime you use a Linux device you must have GPSD disable.

Here is the link and instructions on how to get your USGlobalSat GPS Receiver working again.
By switching back to NMEA protocol.

1. Download and install this software: http://www.usglobalsat.com/store/dow...iRFDemo387.zip
2. Run the Sirf Demo software.
3. Connect your device, choose the correct COM port, and select the 4800 baud rate.
4. Go to Action > Open Data Source.
5. Next, go to Action > Synchronize Protocol & baud rate.
6. Then, go to Action > Switch to NMEA Protocol.
7. In the pop-up window, select the 4800 baud rate under the Baud Rate and click Send.
8. Close the Sirf Demo software.

Now, try your GPS Receiver with the GPSInfo Utility (http://www.usglobalsat.com/store/downloads/GPSInfo.zip) to see if the problem persists.

Note: Be sure and not to click on anything else in this software, as you can render your device unusable.
