Question about Computers & Internet
This is a very old product from Sony for their laptop. My father gave me his old laptop with this product. He used it trouble free for years, but I can not get it to "see" that the GPS is attached. When I start the program it tells me that in order to use the GPS positioning feature the GPS receiver must be attached....augh it is attached. I have tried attaching one part first(2 wires), then the other part first, then both before the comp is turned on, then after, ect. Do I need to reconfigure something trickey in the comp settings?
Here , here and revised here are a couple of relevant and possibly informative links.
Here's a users guide and software cds on craig's list.
I don't know if the user's guide is still available, but it seems like it would be helpful.
Otherwise, it seems to me you need to go into device manager or whatever win98 had that was like one, somewhere in control panel perhaps and look at the hardware configuration and sort it out.
Here's a relevant link that may shed some light.
Interesting historical note about etak here.
From a June 8, 1997 newspaper article: The SkyMap (Etak, 888-2-SKYMAP, http://www.etak.com,
I'm afraid I'm not being very helpful, but it was fascinating trying to discover exactly what kind of hardware you have there, and how it would have to integrate into windows. I must admit I've never seen a receiver like that, but your best bet may be to buy the users guide....
Best of luck!
