I just received my CoPilot Live 5 Bluetooth GPS bundle. I am having a major problem of being off by 100-200ft. The display shows me 1 to 2 streets off of where I actually am.

I am running this off of an IPAQ 4100.

I am sitting at my house and input my house as a destination. It is showing that I am 450-500 ft away from the destination.


It is not just my area. I took a 20 min driver earlier and had the same problem.

I had a similar problem with bt Nemerix based BT-77 receiver. Although not the same device, the solution I found may help you.

First, make sure the GPS is set to use the WGS83 map datum. If not, change it and all should be OK. If that's OK, then do a factory reset of your receiver (that's what sorted mine out).

My GPS came with a PC based utility for doing these tasks, so needs a GPS adaptor for your PC.

Correction: That should be WGS84 map datum...

Why doesn't this board allow editing of posts?
