Is the CR-100 for the XDA2i compatable with the XDA Exec?

Hi,
From the information we have the XDA Exec/SPVM500/JasJar is a miniUSB connector on the side of the device so will mean that it is not compatible with the CR100-XDA2 cradle.
Regards,
Julie

Hi Dave
I have read your yet to be beaten review of the holux CR-100. It actually got me to purchase one. For some reason that is still unknown to me I have not however been able to get it to work with my Dell Axim3 pocket pc. That is despite having select the NMEA 0183v2 4800 driver COM1.
Would you have any suggestions as to why this might be happening

Hi Dave,

I found this website by accident and have ended up buying the CR-100 reviewed on this site by a supplier mentioned as worth getting from also on this site.

Happy with the CR-100 so far (not really road tested it yet though.)

Hi there, new to the board and having problems with my purchased
CR-100 and TT5 communicating with it. I've managed to get the GPS Signal to be picked up using the GPS viewer software, using COM1 and B'Rate of 4800 but once i start Tom Tom there is no GPS information available. I've attempted to configure this using the GPS configuration tool within TT5 using the "Other Cable NMEA GPS" option selecting GPS Baud Rate 4800 and Serial Cable on COM 1 but still hasn't found the GPS receiver on the Holux CR-100 Mount!

My iPaq is the rx3715

If anyone can suggest anything then i would greatly appreciate this!

Phil

I had a similar problem. Make sure you have closed the GPS viewer software before trying to connect using TT5. I also found it still did not work after this but it did after a softreset of iPAQ. Worked wonderfuly ever since.

Sorry cant be of more help than that but thats what worked for me so hopefuly it will for you to!

Googlebot, thanks for that mate, i've just tried this and it worked fine, just wondering now if i need to do this every time as it didn't seem to initiate the gps to attain a signal so this could prove a pain but i'm sure i can figure something out. Thanks for the great advice.

I have only ever needed to to this the once when I first installed TT5. It's worked perfectly ever since :D

Guys,
You do not need to install the GPS viewer software on your PDA unless you are experiencing problems with your unit and you need to problem solve with an engineer.

The GPS viewer software will grab the port and often does not release it unless you do a soft reset on the PDA.

I would recommend removing GPS viewer from your PDA to avoid any further port conflicts.

Regards,
Julie

I've just bought an I-mate JAMin PDA, and I would like to know if the Holux CR-100 has the right connections for it? The USB connector is on the base of the unit as expected, but the headphone socket is right next to it, so I imagine there would need to be a model-specific connector. Is there one available from Holux for this PDA? (I don't know if the JAMin is the same as the I-mate JAM biut I suspect they sport the same hardware except for the addition of WiFi and a few other upgrades.) I'm itching to get a GPS receiver, but I'm holding off as the JAMin is a fairly new unit.

Hi,
Unfortunately Holux have not produced a cradle that has the mini USB connection. I would suggest a GR236 and a powered mount. This setup works very well for my JAM.

Julie

Thanks for the prompt reply, Julie. Which mount are you using, out of interest?
