I have been running oziexplorer for some time
on a PC under XP for navigation with digital NATMAPS.

In order to ease the startup of oziexplorer I would like to
start up oziexplorer on Windows XP automatically
and also start the nmea communication with the gps in
oziexplorer without manual interaction. I ran into two problems.

I have put a link to oziexplorer into my personal Autostartfolder 'Autostart' in XP. After reboot oziexplorer
does not start automatically.

I also could not find the information, how to start 'Start NMEA Communcations ...' in oziexplorer automatically.

I guess there must be forumites who have already solved
these problems

From the OziExplorer help file:

Startup Parameters
The following command line parameters can be used when starting OziExplorer

Note, the / is part of the parameter name.

A map name can be included on the command line but it must come first

/mmstart - Starts Moving Map (NMEA) communication
/mmcontrol - Shows the Moving Map Control
/navcontrol - Shows the Navigation Control
/gpsfix - Shows the GPS Fix window

example command lines
oziexp.exe /mmstart /mmcontrol /navcontrol /gpsfix
oziexp.exe /mmstart
oziexp.exe c:\oziexplorer\maps\ /mmstart /mmcontrol


Hope that helps

Autostart folder? You may possibly be mixing up the Windows Startup folder and the Autostart folder used by some aplications. Try placing the link in Startup folder in your Start menu and Ozi should run on boot up (log on to be more accurate).
