Trouble with GPSout


Recommended Posts

In FSX [Module]

I have GPSout.ini and GPSout.dll

GPSout.ini has

Sentences=RMC,PGRMZ

Port=WideFS

Speed=9600

and the rest of the standard stuff

WideClient on my client has the following wideclient.ini

; PLEASE SEE WideFS documentation for parameter details

; =====================================================

[Config]

Port=8002

Window=270,4,886,589

Visible=Yes

ButtonScanInterval=20

ClassInstance=0

NetworkTiming=5,1

MailslotTiming=2000,1000

PollInterval=2000

Port2=9002

ResponseTime=18

ApplicationDelay=0

TCPcoalesce=No

WaitForNewData=500

MaxSendQ=100

OnMaxSendQ=Log

NewSendScanTime=50

;Log=Errors+

[GPSout]

Port=COM255

Speed=9600

Note...I had to rem out the Run1 because I was getting an [error=2], anthough I can use Blue

Sky Moving Map by manually starting it. This error started after I worked on my GPSout stuff

I have the port emulator on my client set up and appears to be working OK pairing ports

255 and 4. However TopoUSA and Microsoft streets both crash and burn when I try to feed

it the GPSout data.

Does it make any difference what com ports I pair on the client? Is 255 too big? Which one goes first?

Or am I using the wrong sentences? or is TOPOUSA not compatible? It works fine with a Garmin GPS.

Since I already had previously a free version of FSUIPC, I didn't even read that stuff and just went with the WideFS stuff. Your suggestion worked.

I must have read all the directions 50 times and missed that I didn't need GPSout with FSX and new FSUIPC.

Thanks for the help. Your advice was 5 minutes to fix after I spent three hours.

All is working fine now. (Well, except for Delorme stuff which is buggy on its own right.

I still am getting a message that WideFS cannot load moving map, but I can do it manually fine after the error=2 message.

Error 2 is simply the Windows error "file not found": you have an error in the path or filename. And remember you need to put it all in quote "..." if there are spaces in it anywhere.
