Streets and Trips 2013 is not recoginizing my GPS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Streets and Trips 2013 installed on my GPS enabled tablet that has Windows 8.1 OS.  The install went fine, but the program will not recognize my GPS.  I made sure the antenna was turned on, but I still get the error message that no GPS is detected.  Any help would be hot.

  • Win8.1 provides an API for interface to the GPS, rather than a COM port.  "Legacy" software that hasn't been updated to use those API's (like S&T?) will not find the GPS, as they only have the option of getting data through a COM port.  '

    There are a couple software products (Cetrafuse Localizer and GPSDirect ) that can access the API, and turn the data stream into a virtual comm port.  This should make it work.
