Re: [RTrak] Re: Tracker serial port misconfigured?
- Hi Jason,
Below are the answers to your questions in order:
- Yes, it powers up.
- No, the top led is solid red and the bottom is solid green.
- Yes, i am in prog mode while attempting a serial connection
- Yes, three, two desktop workstations with real built-in serial ports.
- Both, normally I use a Vista Laptop with a USB to serial adapter. It seems to be working with the programming software for other radios.
All I get is the "Ready to connect. Please reset tracker now.
Section 4.4 does not indicate what serial port speed, parity or error correction to use, so I used the standard 9600, 8, N ,1.
I'm thinking I may have accidentally checked the erase device and load new firmware check box.

The OpenTracker/ RTrak software is hard coded for baud rate, so it is

Just a few Troubleshooting ?'s
------------ --------- ---------
Can you power up the RTrak?
Does it function normally in RUN MODE?
Can you switch to program mode and then back to run and get a red
blink for GPS activity?
Are you in PROG mode when attempting to read the unit?
Have you tried another computer?
Are you using a hardware comport or USB/serial adapter?
