Post by HRAYWINKLE » Mon Aug 18, 2003 10:38 am

I want to connect my toughbook to a Megellan hand held GPS and down load lat. and long. to the Field Genius program for coord. geometery processing.
Does anyone know if this can be done?

FGXG2 does have support for the hand held GPS units (Magellan, Garmin, etc.). In FieldGenius, when setting up the GPS side of things, set the GPS receiver to NMEA.

That should do it.
