A perhaps bigger disadvantage is that it’s no longer available except through eBay probably used. No, create an account now. Incompatible with most versions of Vista especially bit Incompatible with all versions of Windows 7 No vendor support Do not attempt to install on Vista 64 or any version Windows 7. Yes, my password is: They prefer the Magellan over the Trimble. This new one does work as a standalone unit and is supposed to have a longer battery life. Some GPS receivers double as GPS data loggers; they can record their own trip logs “tracks” , which gives you options:.

It’s time these emulators go the way of the actual serial ports, and that software developers get with the times and make their applications work with the new technology and with the capabilities most of their users want.
You can’t go wrong using a Garmin with the latest maps! IF anyone has had the same issues what was a resolution to the issue if you had to find another puck that was inexpensive and universal to use with earthmqte programs?
Results 1—5 of 5 1. They all worked fairly well with Tru-Traffic. Your message has been reported and will be reviewed by our staff. I am also running the Win XP mode under Win 7. Start – Starts the GPS. Check the specification page for the GPS receiver before buying to determing which type of interface s it has.
These adaptors come with software drivers for serial port emulation. Open the mapping application. This allows you to take just the GPS receiver out in the field, without the laptop, record you trips, then download them into Tru-Traffic after you return to the office.
DeLorme Serial Emulation Driver for Earthmate® GPS Receivers
This installation appears to run in the same way as a standalone Win XP machine, however it does not detect an LT GPS receiver connected to the laptop. This means you can connect the GPS to the laptop out in the field and run just fine, but you cannot, as far as we can tell, take the GPS solo out in the field, use it to windoas intersection coordinates “waypoints” and trip logs “tracks”then download to the computer when earthmafe return to the office.
I’ve confirmed that these drivers allow the Earthmate to operate with Tru-Traffic, but starting with version 6. I am venturing a guess that the LT is an older USB version that Delorme no longer manufactures as I was able to find references to it on their earthjate website, but not much else in the way of useful information. I’ll make a long story short and tell you to save your time looking on the Delorme threads or internet for help on how to make it work because it won’t.
Earthmate USB GPS & 64 Bit Windows 7 – Laptop GPS World
Having said that, with Windows 7 64 bit it basically means the two earghmate I have had for years are no longer good for what I am doing. I haven’t had any personal experience with the Trimble GPS receivers, but Tru-Traffic users in two different states have experimented with a high-end one. It was relatively inexpensive and came with its own mapping software. I would suggest, unless you want to buy a Delorme navigation software product, that you abandon the Earthmate. This driver is not for use with the 64bit version of Windows.
Jan 27, Messages: This allows both legacy applications qindows multiple applications to access the same data stream.
To download pre-recorded trip logs, you may use. Flaming or offending other users. Unfortunately these drivers work only on bit not bit versions of Windows prior to Window 7, so if you run a bit version of Windows or Windows 7 or above, then you’ll need to use the Bluetooth interface to connect to DeLorme’s GPS receivers.
Earthmate LT-20 GPS with WIN7?
Be aware that with many of the GPS receivers that support both serial and USB, getting the serial cable requires a separate purchase. Are you using Win7 32 or bit? Thank goodness for the web and folks like CNET that gives us freedom to make helpful postings computerists in need. I’m not sure if the Magellan GPS receiver just lost the satellite signals more easily than the Garmin, or if both lost satellites but the Garmin recovered more quickly, or if the Garmin was just dead reckoning — extrapolating from the last reliable reading — as Garmins do.
