Trying to get Ozi explorer running on a sony duo 11 ultra book running windows 8.

Ozi is up and running but trying to get moving map using its internal GPS receiver.

How do I configure Ozi to recognise the internal GPS??

Under Configuration/GPS the find GPS port button results in windows internal GPS using the location API - found

But what now????

try getting into devices or control panel and find the GPS drivers then right click propertys and see if you can find a virtual com port and then configure ozi

(this is a guess)

According to the specs, that Ultrabook doesn't have an internal GPS. Most, if not all Windows Ultrabooks at the moment do not have GPS. You will probably need a Bluetooth external one.

Thanks for the replies.

It does have GPS and shows in the device manager. It works well with other apps such as Google maps.

Ozi is working fine and the GPS is working fine. Just can't seem to get them to talk to each other to get moving maps.

Will contact Ozi and see if Des can throw some light on the problem

So if yove found it have you searched its propertys to see if its assighned a com port? . Dont forget when you get into propertys theresva few tabs to look for which com port its assighned to. Then configure ozi to that com port

OTHERWISE contacting des is probably a good idea
