Problem: The GPS device is connected but no data is being received in the GPS Position window


After clicking the 'Detect GPS Port' button and 'Test Connection' button on the GPS Connection Setup dialog box, data does not appear in the GPS Position window.


Even though the GPS may be connected correctly, it is necessary to open a connection to view the incoming data.

Solution or Workaround

Click the 'Open Connection' button on the GPS Toolbar to view the incoming data from the GPS unit.
