Usually you just need to set the gps com port. you can find it by going into "device manager" and looking under ports. it would look something like this ... anager.jpg

Good evening,

Returning to a topic that is a bit old, how can you configure a GPS when I do not already have port (lpt, com) installed in my device?

Also my nuivi 1390 is taken as USB connected mobile device

I find no valid solution to the problem.

Another thing, would it be possible to put a kind of (at) visibly gmail problem when I click on the link, the application starts but there is no essage that is created.

Thank you for your help.

Vistumbler needs a device that creates a com port and can do NMEA data over the serial (com) connection.

It the past I have used a program call "GpsGate Splittler", which allows you to connect to a bunch of different devices and create a virtual com port that vistumbler can connect to.

For my tablet, which uses the microsoft location platform, I use "Cenrafuse Localizer GUI", which creates a virtual com port that allows me to use the sensors usually only accessable through the windows location platform.
