Streets & Trips 2013 - GPS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed Streets & Trips 2013 on 32 bit windows 8.1.  It installed fine but my old Pharos GPS-500 will not work on my ASUS T100TA because it has a USB 3.0 port and it appears it will only work with USB 2.0 ports based on the error message I get from S&T.  Anybody have a GPS that will work with S&T and usb 3.0 ports or has found a Bluetooth gps that will work?

  • I haven't tried a USB3 port, but S&T is looking for NMEA-0183 over an old serial connection. Your vendor will supply a driver that makes the USB connection (used by all modern receivers) look like an NMEA-0183 connection. I think you probably need to contact Pharos for a Win 8.1 driver - and perhaps one that works with USB3 (although my understanding is that USB3 is downward compatible so it should work like USB2 if that is what you have plugged in)
