As someone who has just recently pruchased and installed this software I was wondering if anyone else had the same headaches I had?

I would personaly concider a com port search tool incorporated in the software would save a whole lot of time!!

How come you are not complaining to Bill Gates about his Windows software product. You may make a similar claim that Windows operating system should have a one-click search button for listing assigned com ports it allocated when the GPS was plugged in.

The OziExplorer Web site gives explicit instructions on setting up the software to recognise GPS input. You just need to know it is there.

Also, the Help files you can display within OziExplorer also gives instruction on setting the configuration settings to suit your GPS.
Help - Help Contents - GPS Receivers - Magellan GPS Receivers - OziExplorer Configuration Settings.
It's all there mate. Just a matter of familiarising yourself with PC technology.

Hi Jason - yes many users have experienced headaches re com ports and GPS. A search on this site will confirm that, and give suggestions for avoiding other small 'challenges'.

As the saying goes - it may not be perfect, but it's the best there is (at the moment).
It also gives the grey matter some excercise.

A brilliant piece of software, once you get your mind around it..................Keith

Hi Keith,

Yeah , agree. I just see that as a simple, stupid, often missed part of the software.

I have had it up and running for 2 days now and yes, it is the bees knees. I am very happy with the purchase.

If you go to the utilities page on the OziExp web site you will find a utility for finding com ports and checking for GPS

I do appreciate your argument Sand Man, I have been looking for an alternative to windoze for many years.

I went to their site and found the port seach program and just wondered why when I bought the new upgraded version of the software, it is not included as a step by step part of the setup. It would be a rather simple add on.

To have it on their site is a possible ommission of the problem.

Thanks to you lads I have cracked it now and am running fine but I went over their site and followed their example.

The DiscoverAus software was no better when I first bought it. Had to go through the same learning curve but .
