Hi rob,

If it isn't to much trouble, could you please send the prog and docs to me?
I did have the program, but no docs, but lost the program in a computer
crash.

Many thanks,
Brett.

  Yes, you can use SiRFDemo 3.81 (Copyright © 2005 SiRF Technology, Inc)
with JAWS and get the job done. The best way to go is to start in random
mode with no receiver attached, to get a feel of the layout and the menu's.
However, it's not a 'trial and error' sort of program. You can render a
receiver useless by disconnecting in SiRF mode, the program will not issue
any warnings. The menu's are accessible, the graphics in the toolbar can be
labeled and the JAWS cursor gives you a good view. I've gott the manual that
came with V2.x and a 'how to switch off Static Navigation' document and will
include that in the package. All previous warnings still apply!

    Can't you change to SIRF3 protocol via the menus, then most things
appear to be mostly accessible to Jaws.

      The bt338 and GPSlim236 receivers by Holux are now shipping with
Static Navigation turned off, as far as I know. About 7 months ago, they had
SN on. Some resellers may have had old stock and that's why some of us have
purchased a receiver with SN in the 'car mode'. SN is a feature that can be
turned off by means of a program that is used by developers and
manufacturers called SIRFDEMO. In fact, it's a piece of cake if you can see
and know what you are doing. However, if you rely on a screenreader it's a
'no go'. Basic communication with GPS receivers runs via NMEA messages, but
there's a binary connection that allows for the fine tuning of SiRF3*
chipsets. If you make a mistake in binary mode, e.g. you hit the wrong key
while searching for the right menu, or switch the communication between your
computer and the receiver off at the wrong moment, you're stuck with a
receiver that's not accessible anymore. There's a work-around in that you
take out the battery and wait for 24 hours, until the CMos battery has died.
That resets the receiver back to factory mode and you can have another go.
In short, don't do it if you don't have experience with this kind of stuff.
Then again, if you know someone with good computer skills and a pair of
working eyes, there's your solution. I've got the program here, and if you
are willing to take a risk, just mail me and I'll send it to you. But don't
complain when things go wrong.


      The RoyalTec 2001 and 2010 have SN turned off and I also use the Adapt
AD750 that comes with SN off.

        For what it is worth, my receiver is an Adapt AD 750 and I haven't
got any

        of the trouble you described.

        But I don't know if it uses static navigation or not. I just bought
this one

        because it is small and because I could get it for a very nice
price.


        Kind regards,

        Miranda
