How to use Bridge on Windows

This article will teach you how to use Bridge to get data from your SPT GPS and to remove old data from your SPT GPS. We've written another article that teaches you how to install Bridge.

This article is for users of Windows. If you are using Mac OSX see the How to use Bridge on Mac OSX article

Requirements

  • If using the first generation device. Pre-installed USB device driver for the first generation SPT unit.
  • Device driver is not required for the next generation device on Windows 10.
  • Device driver is required for the next generation device on Windows 7 or 8 - spt2-driver-win7-8.exe.

Get data off your SPT GPS:

Important note for Windows users

  • When running Bridge on Windows we can support multiple devices: a mix of both first generation and next generation SPT devices.
  • Bridge cannot auto detect a device (when you plugin/remove a device to/from the computer). Bridge searches for devices at the start. Make sure you plugin all the devices before doing operations (e.g. Download, Erase) on the devices. If you have to change devices, you have to restart the Bridge.
