Question Reading form serial port strangeness

Hi all,

Have been attempting to read in NMEA sentences from a GPS unit - unfortunately whilst I am able to do this fine in a HyperTerminal window whenever I try to do this using Vizard & PySerial I just get a load of weird characters with the occasional sentence creeping through! I have set the baud rate (4800) and everything else to be the same as HyperTerm but with no joy .

- confusingly however if I choose the plain 'text out' option for the GPS unit then Vizard reads this in no problem at all (with all the same settings on the Vizard side)??
Has anyone got any idea why can Vizard/python read the plain text output but not NMEA sentences??

Peace out Vizard Wizards
