    Unanswered: Import data from GPS (Pharo GPS-360) device.

    Hi Everybody,

    Can anyone explain to me how I can retrieve the Longitude and Latitude information from my GPS device? It is attached to comport 4, using USB. I would like to be able to click a button from a form and have it immediately retrieve my location from the GPS device. I can manually input it, but I know there must be a way to automate it. Any help would be appreciated. Jim

    needs more info
    depends on your os - if win 98/95/ then you may be in luck.
    if you are using XP / NT / 2000 then you may be out of luck.

    even if you are using 98/95/ then its a bit of a nightmare getting a serial port to work in Access, its quite easy in VB but not VBA. as to how you address USB's within 98/95/ I don't know - presuambly they would appear as a com port.

    there is on the microsoft site some info on reading com ports within, there may be soem info on reading USB in Access. failing that I'd try a google search.
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
