GPS Direct Connect Software / Software to sync a Windows PC directly from a GPS Antenna
Connect GPS antenna to interface box & plug in wall wart (transformer connected to interface box)
Connect RS-485 DB-9 Connector to your computer. Select a comm port not being used by other components – preferrably comm #3 in our experience. Use of a USB to serial converter is recommended.
Install and run software disc included with kit and open it from desktop icon (option to actually put icon on desktop).
After selecting the GPS time icon, a “GPS clock connection” box will appear.
Select configuration and open.
In the “Serial com port” box choose which com port you want to use (usually com #3.) Select data rate for 9600. The update PC time choice can be whatever you choose, as well as the offset time. Again, your choice to sync GPS to local time.
Close window and select start. Within a few seconds the time will appear in box and the time base will automatically be updated to GPS accurate time on your computer.
