Thank you! So happy to finally get a solid answer on this...excellent.
That's a shame that $GPVTG is required now before the GPS object will work. That's going to preclude using many cheap GPS receivers I'd think. Technically, the object should work with at minimum the $GPRMC...the reason that's called a Recommended Minimum from NMEA.
Yes, I am using an USB GPS, but I was also afraid of moving a current app on a Trimble Juno from 9.2 to 9.3 until someone could state why GPS in 9.3 isn't working. I will now have to see what the Juno puts out. I'll also have to verify the GPS output from a Tough Book.
Does NIM040003 deal with the exception error when closing the com port?
