Adrian Lewer Posted December 5, 2008 Share Posted December 5, 2008 Hi all i am wanting to buy a GPS unit soon and would like to know if the Garmin 96C will work with the Sentinent AirNav Software ? if so will it still have moving maps ect ? i E mailed sentinent and this is what they said As there are so many GPS Units in the market, we are unable to tell many people whether their GPS Unit is compatible, however you can find out from your manufacturer by stating/asking the following (or if you know the answers yourself): ---------- I am running a navigation application on my PC. The navigation application receives NMEA0183 data from a GPS connected to a COM port on the PC and displays this information on the PC monitor. Most GPS units will allow this application to control the COM port when the GPS is connected to the PC and the GPS is transmitting data in NMEA0183 mode. Some GPS units, such as Garmin 296s, include a cable and software that will not allow some third-party applications to control the COM port when the GPS is connected. Does the [insert GPS model number here] have the ability to transmit NMEA0183 data? Does the GPS unit come with a cable, or is a cable available, that allows any third-party application to read the COM port when the GPS is connected? Does the GPS unit come with software that takes control of the COM port when the GPS is connected? (If so, the navigation application will not be able to read the GPS data). --------------- Makes no sense to me so hopefully someone could shed some light on the situation...
