...here's my horror story, let's see if anyone has already seen something like that. :)
I used a 6680+9553 for the last two years, and everything worked fine, except the occasional glitch. Now I upgraded to a N73, kindly offered by the company I work for. All excited, I install all my software... just to discover that GPS-based ones work *very* erratically.
Nokia Sports Tracker, RaceChrono and the built-in navi software do connect via BT, but don't seem to receive any signal from the satellites. Darn, the receiver is broken - pull out the old, trusty 6680 to have a backup test, and... the Leadtek works again. Ouch. Let's get back to the N73, and... the Leadtek works!
I've confirmed this behaviour at least twice: if I start the receiver using TomTom navi on the 6680, I can turn off the 6680, turn on the BT on N73, and the thing works. If, on the other hand, I switch on the receiver on the 6680, then the N73, bluetooth works, but any software is waiting for a satellite fix.
Any suggestion? (Yes, I'm considering getting another BT GPS receiver, I'd just love to make sure I solve the problem...)
Thanks in advance, Ed
This has been reported by one user before, and firmware update helped. Please let me know if this helped.
thanks, but the firmware is up-to-date. No problem, I'll still use the trusty 6680 and go on experimenting with some other (friend's) receivers. Will let you know.
