Here's how to get your SporTrak and Delorme Topo 4.0 to recognize each other and track your position, real-time. This is fun if you have a laptop...

Here's what needs to happen:
Delorme Topo 4.0 USA
On the GPS tab choose settings
Choose device
Device = Magellan (w/Wpt)
Port = (correct COM port for your PC)
Settings 4800,8,N,1

Note: Make sure you don't have any program using your COM port, such as: ActiveSync, HotSync or Palm Desktop.

SporTrak:
Go to settings and choose NMEA
Select V2.1GSA
Go to Baud Rate and select 4800 Baud
Exit all menus
Turn GPSr off
Connect the GPS to the host machine running Topo.
Turn GPSr back on
Go to Satellite Status Nav screen on GPSr

Delorme Topo:
Select The GPS tab
Select the Settings
Click start GPS
You should see the connection status on the Topo software change to Acquiring and, when you get sats on your GPS, you should be up and running.

Note: After you're done playing with Delorme, remember to shut NMEA off when you try to upload and download waypoints.
