Kathy:

I took a Garmin I had laying around and hooked it up to the 9 pin port....changed the setting in the Trimble and was able to get a connection from the Garmin. Seemed to work great, drove around a little bit, tracked my movement by using the onscreen buttons for drawing a line, just like I want it too. Tried it with the IFB switch, GPS still worked, IFB didn't. I changed the settings around under the advanced settings tab to Comm 1 (where it was reading the Garmin), then comm and GPS button, and the IFB button, with no luck. I had another IFB switch, hooked it up.....same thing. I checked and I have power to the IFB switch from my implement when the switch is turned on, just as it should.

When I set the advanced settings to have it look for the implement switch on Comm 1, it tells me it is unable to connect to the implement switch on the Comm port.

Do you know what pin in the IFB switch sends the unit the signal, just wondering if there is a way to test the power on one of the pins. But it seems more like there is a problem with the unit or program recognizing the IFB switch.
