Can't be any if it doesn't work.
Can't get it to connect to my Garmin Nuvi 360. The help file assumes that it will connect, so it doesn't have anything the help file to tell what if it can't connect. SO the program is worse then useless. I can't stand poorly written help files that are no help at all.
Use another program if you have a Garmin Nuvi 360.
Automatically detect your GPS device and display the COM port and baud rate setting which is required to use.
Not compatible with all Windows version.
There are no pros, it doesn't work.
Downloaded 3 different times, fully installed and uninstalled each time. Will not run at all, it says "Component tabctl32.ocx or one of it's components not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." This happens with every installation and every time I attempt to run it.
Worthless unless the proper files are included in the download.
Found my GPS (RoyalTek).
The lat/lon were off by two decimal points. A value of 40.01 was shown as 4001.
I would like to be able to cut and paste the values, but they are not available to cut.
Could be improved with just a little work I hope.
Nothing I can say
Detects device on COM-port, but does not identify it as GPS device.
Try "GPS Diagnostics", which dows work with my Jentro.
Try it - but don't rely on it.
Plain and easy interface
Dis not discover my GPS logger, only supports ports 1 through 15
Try the program if you have plain vanilla GPS receiver and it may work for you. Make sure you know lots of GPS specifics in general and your receiver in particular.
good,I want to download it
googd,very good,I like it,I want to download it
I installed the Easy GPS Tester and the USB drivers from the Garmin site. I rebooted, hooked up the GPS and started the program. I clicked the Auto Detect button and it scanned Com1 and Com2-15 which do NOT exist! No mention of any USB ports! Not worth the price!

This software is not for actual GPSs. It's for USB devices that read NMEA satellite data to turn your laptop into a GPS. This means it tests the device you need to run mapping software on your laptop. These devices typically come with a USB to COM translator so that the mapping software sees a COM port to read NMEA data. That is the part that this software tests. In other words, the Garmin eTrex doesn't feed NMEA into the laptop and therefore it would not be detected.

I forgot to add that the GPS does show up as an MSD-type drive and I can transfer the ,GPX files to my PC.
Running Windows XP Pro
Small program, easy to use, BUT...
It wouldn't detect my Garmin Rino 120 on my computer. I could find my GPS using "Mapsource" on Serial Port 9. In this software, not even Auto Detect could find my Garmin. Would have liked to have seen what info it could have found.
I was having trouble getting my GPS to work - the software I was trying to use it with just kept saying that the device didn't exist. Easy GPS Tester breaks the problem down into three stages - COM port found, device found on COM port, device is a GPS. It turned out that although the COM port existed no device could be found - my serial cable was faulty. I replaced this and Easy GPS Tester found the GPS straight away and gave me all of the settings I needed to use. Very simple, but did the job.
Interface isn't the most beautiful in the world! :-)
