Thread: GlobalSat BU-353 USB

    For some reason it's actually talking to the GPS device today. Turned on my PC, plugged in the unit, started, inssider, enabled GPS and I got this:



    Then I ran Tyler's debug version and got the same statusbar text and the following console output by starting scanning, enabling GPS, letting it run for a minute, and then disabling GPS (I've condensed the many duplicate lines with "..."):

    So it wasn't working, but now it just works? Very strange.

    Could be that before I was having the problem that DocJ mentioned about the unit's app not being closed. This time I happened to run inssider after a clean reboot.

    Sooo, is there something I'm doing wrong to make it get the "FIX LOST" message? Because I still can't get it to pull any data.

    Default Bu-353

    DocJ seems to have the fix. If you've been running GPS-Info, close it, reboot and start InSSIDer. This works every time for me. As the BU-353 documentation says, it is important that you close any program using the GPS before starting another one. Unfortunately, it doesn't tell you how to close GPS-Info. I would suggest not using GPS-Info unless you have to and if you use it, reboot before trying any other program.

    Smile GPS Information update

    Good day,

    I have removed the GPS Information utility from my Windows 7 Ultimate machine, rebooted the machine, opened INSSIDer and voila' GPS is enabled.

    Now the issue is in every attempt to export to a KML file, INSSIDer crashes. I have sent an e-mail with the diagnostic report:

    [Message]
    Could not find file 'C:\Users\blackcosteau\Documents\_Data\InSSIDer\Lo gging\2010-4-9_15-55-25.gpx'.

    I shall make another attempt to see what the results and let everyone know. Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone!

    Follow-up. I erased all of the log files generated by INSSIDer, restarted my computer, and tried exporting all data to KML via the application only to have the app crash again.

    It is good to know that the GPS is working without any issues. Now all that remains is for this issue to be resolved and I will be very happy.

    My last scan produced a GPX file and I was able to view the data and manually export the information to a KML file.

    Any ideas?

    Well, the error looks like the GPX file it's looking for isn't there. Does the file "C:\Users\blackcosteau\Documents\_Data\InSSIDer\Lo gging\2010-4-9_15-55-25.gpx" exist?

    Hello again,

    Initially there was a GPX file. I looked at the path and the file was there. However, since then I have cleared all of the logs and continue to get a similar error. GPS works fine, BTW.
