Question about Garmin GPS 12 GPS Receiver
Unable to use Mapsource 4.12 to connect to my G.12. Reports "problem with com 1 and/or no access". Unable to get contact with garmins dos-based updater software as well. Have checked that there are no other conflicting devices according to msinfo32. Don`t know how to procede.
I had a similar problem with another garmin model. Problem cropped up after some sync software for an mp3 player was installed in my PC.
To get the softCOM 1 to garmin 12 problems - 1.gifimg src="http://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/1.gif" alt="1.gif" class="h_mi" /> to recognise my GPS I had to go into my PC's task manager. (ctrl alt del). Click on the processes tab and look for a program called "wces.exe". Ending that process would allow the PC to recognise the GPS. Be careful, ending the wrong process can screw up your PC.
I know this solution is a longshot, please don't give a bad rating! :)
