View Full Version : Need a working GPS program

I need a GPS program that works.

I have a BU-353 antenna connected to my notebook.

OpenCPN does recognize the GPS and locates me perfectly but OpenCPN is for nautical work.

I've tried Navit (crashes and is difficult to configure)

Viking (doesn't work)

Roadnav (Get error message that no GPS unit is detected) Roadnav has the nicest GUI

TangoGPS....another one those that doesn't recognize the GPS

FoxTrotGPS wants some web site to get the route from (great- how do I do that while driving in a car?)

You name it....I tried it and none of them work well (except OpenCPN)

Do any of you have a solution to using one of these programs?

RoadNav would be great if I could get it to work.
