"Does not function"

October 20, 2012  |  By noeman5

 |  Version: Easy GPS Tester 1

Pros

There are no pros, it doesn't work.

Cons

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.

Summary

Worthless unless the proper files are included in the download.

"Worked but one glitch and one request"

December 01, 2010  |  By phmurphy

 |  Version: Easy GPS Tester 1

Pros

Found my GPS (RoyalTek).

Cons

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.

Summary

Could be improved with just a little work I hope.

 |  Version: Easy GPS Tester 1

Pros

Plain and easy interface

Cons

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.

"Can't find my Garmin eTrex HC"

August 03, 2008  |  By thombrown

 |  Version: Easy GPS Tester 1

Cons

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!

"Odd indeed"

February 03, 2007  |  By exmilitary

 |  Version: Easy GPS Tester 1

Pros

Small program, easy to use, BUT...

Cons

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.

"Does what it says on the tin!"

February 12, 2006  |  By dreambreed

 |  Version: Easy GPS Tester 1

Pros

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.

Cons

Interface isn't the most beautiful in the world! :-)
