Q & A  (English)

1. I had old category GM-210(or GM-200) product but where can I get the driver on your website?

If you already had CA-USB cable as below photo (or your product type was USB interface)~ CA-USB.JPG

Please try to download the suitable driver in Holux website ~ http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=273 

They are the common driver with each other (GM-200 / 210 & GR-213U)


2. I had old category GM-210 of PS2 interface and it was fault, now. Do you have other model is supported PS2 interface?

You can refer our GR-213 and M-215 product for PS/2 interface, pls. refer on Holux website~

GR-213~ http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/products/products_content.jsp?pno=127  

M-215~ http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/products/products_content.jsp?pno=342  


3. The GR-213 worked fine in Windows Vista with the XP drivers, but Windows 7 does not recognize it, do you have solution?

We think the problem should be the driver wasn’t compatible with Windows 7 because it was latest OS platform in the computer.

Please try to download any related utilities on Holux website~ http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=273

 

4. I had GR-213 (or GM-200/ 210) and installed the drivers but I cannot get it to come up on my maps software, what I can do?

Please try to install the suitable driver as attached file in the your laptop and make sure 
your setting of COM port is correct, baud rate 4800.
You can download any related utilities on Holux website~ 
http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=273

Please try to use the “GPS viewer” to test the status of GPS in open sky, 
You just need to check the GR-213 whether it can connect and observe GPS signal.
If everything is fine, the GR-213 is ok.

If the problem persists, the device should be a problem.
Pls. contact your reseller (or local retailer) for support or repair if it is necessary.
Or you can contact our customer and repair service unit for supoort~ 
e-mail: RMA@holux.com

5. I had GR-213 (or GM-200/ 210) and the LED didn't blinking any more, does anything wrong?

We think the GPS module could be a problem, we would suggest you doing simple test in open sky to verify whether it is OK.

Please try to refer this File:GR-213-備忘錄1.pdf file, it would have detail instruction。


6. I have a question with the GPS receiver 213U (or M-215) in your Manual, it had mentioned the NMEA of GLL /VTG /ZDA sentense for optional. So, How can I do to enable?

Unfortunately to tell you, this firmware modification was based on customization for customer 
with a large order. 
Because it was special application for GPS performance. 
Normally, you just need GGA / GSA / GSV / RMC of NEMA format that can be filled most of navigation 
software. 

7. I would like to know GR-213(or GM-200 & 210 & M-215) can works with my IPAQ214 or any tablet computer?

Normally, you have to make sure what kind of interface you want connect on your using platform.
Therefore you can choose the suitable interface (PS/2 or USB) to plug on the platform.
But we have to remind you if you use the USB interface you have to install the suitable driver on 
your platform (Windows 98 / 2K / XP / Vista).

You can directly use the PS/2 interface of GR-213 without any driver.
But we are not sure whether the GR-213 can work compatible with HTC, we think you should discuss 
with IPAQ214 of vendor.

8. Why GR-213(or GM-200 /210) shows no speed under 2,5 kn (4,63 km/h) with navigation software?

We have to advise one thing, the SiRF chipset had limited the velocity under 2.4~2.6 km / hr, 
therefore speed will show zero.
It was default setting by SiRF vendor, and we didn’t have any utility or ability to modify this 
setting.

9. I had GR-213(or GM-200 / 210) with Female PS2 interface, Is there an adapter or a way to convert this unit to a usb end?

Normally, you just need to insert the suitable port (PS/2 male) without any driver.

If you want to connect with laptop by USB port you have to use the converter cable(CA-USB) as below photo~ CA-USB.JPG

If you don’t have it and really need it pls. try to contact local retailer to buy it.

You can contact to our unit of Online Store to buy it <the P/N is “67011-05N”>

Contact information : online_store@holux.com  

10. What is the inrush current when first powering on the GR-213 GPS?

The power consumption current of GR-213 was around 40~50 mA.
And the “current surge”, we couldn’t measure very clear how ever it still was around 60~65 mA.

11. Where can I find the GR-213(or GM-200 /210) driver for MAC system?

Please try to download any the driver on Holux website~ http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=273

12. I felt the GR-213(or GM-200 / 210) of accuracy was going to become uncorrect, does anything what I can do?

We couldn’t understand what root cause happened in this your opration environment, but we just can advise to you the GPS had the accuracy tolerance around 5~15m when GPS is staid in open sky and signal is stable / stronger.
But if your environment was under too many shelters (the most effect of GPS performance), the GPS accuracy tolerance would become larger and lose reality.
 

Therefore we just can suggest executing the “Factory Reset” function with the “GPS viewer” utility as below photo and check again~ 08-F.JPG

You can download the related utility on Holux website~ http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=273  


If the problem persists, the device should be a problem.
Pls. contact your reseller (or local retailer) for support or repair if it is necessary.
Or you can contact our customer and repair service unit for supoort~
e-mail: RMA@holux.com   

13. I had GR-213 receiver(or GM-200 / 210), do you have "GPS viewer" utility can work with MAC system?

Unfortunately, we didn't have this kind of "GPS viewer" utility can support to work in MAC system.
How ever, you may try to test our "GPS viewer" utility in windows simulated system under MAC 
platform function.

14. I would like to know if GR-213 receiver(or GM-200 / 210 / M-215) is compatible or not with Microsoft Autoroute 2010 (Europe) receiver?

Normally, you just need to install the suitable driver in the your laptop and make sure your 
setting of COM port is correct, baud rate 4800.
How ever, Holux just belong to manufacturing GPS receiver of expert and provide technical and 
repair service for hardware device. The map software setting wasn’t our professional skill.

We can't guarantee our product can match all of map navigation. 
Because some of vendors (like Nokia map) have had limited or customized the suitable GPS receiver 
to match its Map program.

By the way, the Holux of Standard GR-213 specification and most popular was below~
Baud rate : 4800
NMEA sentence : GGA / GSA(5) / GSV(5) / RMC / VTG
Updating frequency : 1Hz

15. I had GR-213 receiver(or GM-200 / 210 / M-215), can it support to changer coordinate system to other categories?

First of all, our coordinate system of GR-213 was WGS-84 with default setting.
How ever, you may could transfer WGS-84 to other coordinate system by some kind of setting utility.
But it just work for temporary. When it power off and restart GR-213 would return back to default.
If you want to keep the coordinate system in long time, this should be made for customization 
firmware.

16. Dose GR-213(or GM-200 / 210) support to work with Android and where can I downlaod driver?

First of all, we really didn’t have driver version for Android platform completely. How ever, we found some information on our USB chipset vendor website.

Please try to refer this File:GR-213 notice1.pdf file, it would have detail instruction。


17. Could you tell us about GR-213(PS2) of pinout definition(or GM-200 / 210)?

Please try to refer this File:GR-213 notice2.pdf file, it would have detail instruction。


18. Could I make the commands the application sends persistent for the GR-213u(or GM-200 / 210 / M-215), I want the same information reported always when device without power

Unfortunately, this kind of application or operation method was impossible.

Please try to refer this File:GR-213 notice3.pdf file, it would have detail instruction。


19. I can't find in your instuctions what the " hot-cold-warm start" is doing in the GPSViewer utility for 213u(or GM-200 / 210 / M-215)?

This function is described the GPS performance in TTFT model for detail theory. If you really interest about this you can try to search on internet or refer our reference as attached file. The GPS viewer utility only works for simply verify the GR-213 performance.

Please try to refer this File:What is GPS cold start.pdf file, it would have detail instruction。


20. My computer can't find the COM port by using GPS viewer for the GR-213u(or GM-200 / 210 / M-215), What can I do?

The problem could be driver setup wasn't success or complete.

Please try to refer this File:GR-213 notice4.pdf file, it would have detail instruction。

And please try to download another GPS viewer utility as below weblink, and you can support to choose the COM 1~50
http://www.holux.com/webdav/fae/GPSViewer~COM50.zip


21. I had GR-213 receiver(or GM-200 / 210 / M-215), How do set up the WAAS function?

The DGPS function is included the WAAS / EGNOS / MSAS system and you don't need to set anything.
If you are in USA area, you will auto-receive the signal of WAAS satellite.
If you are in Europe area, you will auto-receive the signal of EGNOS satellite.
If you are in Japan area, you will auto-receive the signal of MSAS satellite.
It just show the different number GPS satellites in your navigation program.

22. I have a problem with gps receiver m-215. After instaling drivers for Windows 7 system stop responding, What can I do?

We didn’t get this kind of issue before, we will try to advise to our chipset vendor.
If we can get any solution or solved method from our vendor, we will change our driver link on Holux website and make the notice.
Please try to use the attached file of driver and check again~

http://www.holux.com/webdav/fae/Silicon_LabsV5.3+.zip


By the way, please unzip the attached file and save on your hard disk of laptop.
Then plug the M-215 to your laptop, the computer will detect new device and asking for requiring driver.
Then please indicate the driver location where you save this unzip of driver folder link.
Finally, the computer will auto setup and you can try to check again.
We would suggest please try to change other windows platform (except win 7) to use, it would be worked success.

23. Can I change the com port number of M-215(or GM-200 / 210 / GR-213)that is assigned to it?

Of course, you can do this setting to change that.

Please try to refer this File:M-215 notice1.pdf file, it would have detail instruction。


24. Is it possible to use USB to PS2 connector with GR-213U (GM-200/ 210/ M-215)?

Unfortunately, there is no way to convert the interface from USB to PS2 because it had already embedded the USB signal of chipset inside.

Please try to refer this File:GR-213 notice5.pdf file, it would have detail instruction。




Q & A  (Chinese)

1. 請問, GR-213 衛星接收器可以輸出1pps訊號嗎?

我們的SiRF chipset模組的設計部分是有支援1PPS訊號的輸出;但此module與終端產品(GR-213 or M-215)的主板結合時
,該並未設計於PS/2 cable的輸出端,將此訊號輸出功能。
故於模組端是可量側到此訊號,但終端產品的輸出卻無訊號。

因此您可任意購買我們的SiRF chipset之模組,但您必須自行於主板設計有將此訊號輸出接取的功能。

2. 請問, 我的GR-213(或GM-200 & 210)的接頭是PS2介面的;是否有轉接頭可轉換為USB介面?

請您參閱以下圖片,為GR-213之各種轉接cable;您所需的應該是CA-USB這種cable~ CA-USB.JPG


再請您與我們的線上購物單位聯繫看看,看是否此cable仍有庫存可販售給您~ online_store@holux.com


3. 請問我有一GR-212的舊產品(或 GM-200 /210), 我要去那裏才可下載驅動程式?

首先請你先確認一下,您是否已有此"CA-USB的轉接cable", 如下圖所示(或你的產品本身就是USB介面)~ CA-USB.JPG

是的話,請至Holux官網處下載相關工具與驅動程式 ~ http://www.holux.com.tw/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=313 

(GR-212與GR-213的驅動程式是共用的)


4. 請問, GR-213(或GM-200 /210 /GR-212)是否有支援Win 7平台,那驅動程式要在何處下載?

有支援的,請至Holux官網之"GR-213下載區"來選取Win 7 Driver進行下載~
http://www.holux.com.tw/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=313  

5. 我們使用GR-213產品欲搭配開發一套電子地圖系統,但通過com口獲取數據時都是一些數字,並非手冊說明上提到的?

此部分我們不太確定是什麼原因所導致的,但一般皆是您所使用的測試平台軟體上之設定問題所導致的。
因為我們GR-213U的產品,其出廠預設便為可支援NMEA 0183 2.2版;其輸出格式為~
GGS(1) / GSA(5) / GSV(5) / RMC(1) / VTG (1)

故一般只要於你所使用的裝置平台上,安裝合適你作業系統的驅動程式後;確認baud rate 4800、COM port數,便能透過相關
GPS應用軟體,瀏覽GPS之NEMA data。
您可嘗試至Holux官網下載”GPS Viewer”小程式,來測試看看;只要您安裝驅動程式成功,透過該程式指定COM port、Bard 
rate值,便可看到GPS之衛星訊號與NMEA data。
另外提醒您,有的GPS應用軟體確實會於NMEA的協定上有特殊要求,此部分變為特殊客製化的版本;故此部分須跟軟體商確認!

6. 請問我的GR-213產品(或 GM-200 /210), 為何都收不到任何衛星訊號?

首先請確認,GR-213之LED燈是否有閃爍;當GPS定位後,其LED燈會開始變閃爍。另外務必安裝正確合一的驅動程式至您的電腦後,GR-213才可以與電腦連接;並會被電腦指定一COM port位置。若您確認無誤,我們會建議您做以下步驟測試。

您可以使用”GPS viewer_PC”測試軟體裡的功能,執行<Factory Reset>、如附件圖片~
08-F.JPG

然後請您嘗試與別台電腦連結,並利用”GPSViewer_PC” 測試軟體再確認看看。(可以在以下網下載)~ http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=273  


若測試的結果一切正常,那您的GR-213接收器便沒有問題;若測試的結果仍出現相同的問題,那您的GPS接收器可能就有問題。
我們會建議您直接與您的購買商(或經銷商)聯繫,請他們幫您處理確認或進行維修程序。
若您找不到您的購買商,再請跟我們的維修單位連絡,他會為您服務的~

7. 請問, GPS viewer裡的"Hot/ Warm/ Cold start"對GR-213(或 GM-200 /210 /M-215)測試有什麼區別?
此部分它是屬於測試GPS在第一次定位效能上的參考數值,您可參閱此File:What is GPS cold start.pdf檔案,有細部的說明。

8. 請問GR-213是否可於Android平台之平板電腦上執行,哪裡有驅動程式?

首先知會您, 須先確認平板電腦是否有支援USB port;然後該產品Holux確實無可直接對應Android系統的驅動程式。不過我們在該USB晶片之硬體廠商官網上有看到訊息告知,廠商說Android的driver與Linux的是可共用的;故可嘗試至我們官網下載Linux的驅動程式,來測試看看~ http://www.holux.com/JCoreTW/en/products/products_download.jsp?pno=313 

可參此 File:GR-213 notice1.pdf 檔案,有較細部的說明。

9. 請問我使用M-215於win7 64位元的系統平台上,開機執行時會當機;為何會如此,有其它驅動程式嗎?

目前M-215在與最新Win 7 – 64bit平台上,確實會有機率發生當機的問題;此問題我們與驅動模組廠仍在分析處理中,目前暫有一驅動程式可順利安裝與使用。

但此驅動程式並非一般的exe的執行安裝方式,此安裝方式為當M-215接上電腦時;電腦偵測到新硬體會跳出詢問驅動程式的視窗,此時便要指定安裝路徑到此驅動程式的資料夾下,才可以順利執行安裝。

故可至我以連接下驅動程式,來測試看看~ http://www.holux.com/webdav/fae/Silicon_LabsV5.3+.zip 


10. 請問我用M-215 (或GM-200/ 210/ GR-213)在我的電腦,是否可變更電腦自動分配的COM port數?

可以的,你可至電腦的裝置管理員中來變更此COM port數設定值.

可參閱此 File:M-215 備忘錄1.pdf 檔案,這會有細部的說明。


11. 請問我用市面上的PS2轉USB的轉接頭,來與GR-213U (或GM-200/ 210/ M-215)產品連接的話,是否便可為PS2的介面來使用?

很抱歉是不行的,因為USB的晶片已經內建在此產品內部了;該轉接頭無法再將訊號轉成RS-232的介面,且此轉接頭的Pin角定義,我們的PS2的Pin角定義也不相符,所以根本不能適用。只能建議您另外購買我們的PS2介面的G-mouse接收器!

可參閱此 File:GR-213 notice5.pdf 檔案,這會有細部的說明。


12. 請問GR-213 (或GM-200/ 210/ M-215)接收器內的WASS / EGNOS功能如何啟用?

此種DGPS輔助GPS定位精準度的功能,您不需做任何設定;只要您的機器到該系統之所在地~
你若在美國當地,便可以收到WAAS之衛星訊號。
你若在歐洲當地,便可以收到EGNOS之衛星訊號。
你若在日本當地,便可以收到MSAS之衛星訊號。
它不需做任何設定、便可自動設接收此訊號。
它只會在您的導航軟體中,顯示不同編號的衛星訊號。
