Description

Hi,

my garmin etrex and other gps reciver (with NMEA output) works fine under QGIS 1.7.1 with the GPS information panel if I set the COM-port manuel (under option->connection I have select the correct serial device COM-port).
But with qgis 1.7.4 or qgis master brunch qgis crashed if I pushed the connect button. I have not tested this problem under qgis 1.7.2 and 1.7.3.

If I select under option->connection->autodetect than qgis have no problems.
I use qgis under windowsXP and windows 7.

Thomas

Hi,
can anybody check the following solution for this problem?

QgsGPSInformationWidget::connectGps(){
...
//replace follow line:
//port = mCboDevices->currentText();
port = mCboDevices->itemData(mCboDevices->currentIndex()).toString();
...
}
