I think so too...
Cz my set is actualy SG set, it comes with a bundled Destinator GPS software also...although I didn't tried it yet.... :lol:

Dvpro... Oh, ok, the "Built-In GPS" part is for Nokia....
I think I installed correctly...since I can access to all the details inside... :-k
And yes, the RGN file, I just copy and paste all the folder as per instructed...it works!

Thanks guys!

Hope it will work fine, or I'll just come visit this thread again... :thumbsup:

Hi, sorry for the late reply.

I dun really set anything on the external GPS anyway.
From setting in the garmin itself, I just use the intermediate driver.. The satellite lock in quite fast.

Tried this morning on the way to work, just testing whether it working fine or not....
works like a charm! :lol:
Thanks so much guys... esp dvpro for all the helps!

Oh, btw, is it my phone, or setting, that I cannot see it in landscape mode?
Sorry if I shouldn't ask this here...

What happens when you start GMXT while phone is in landscape mode?

This setting depends on phone hardware itself. Have you tried enabling at GMXT's Remote GPS page?

There's no setting in GMXT. In my phone, it just follows phone's display setting. Is your phone able to switch to 2 types of landscape modes, ie. clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation? If yes, have you tried with both landscape options?
