Editing GPS Startup Options

The configVars.txt file that comes in the zip file with the GPS holds a short text string that tells the GPS how to configure itself when it is started.

The default text in the file is "alphaValue=0&openCode=MG&coordMode=xyz&refreshDelay=200". In order for the GPS to be able to correctly read these options, they have to remain in this format. The values after the = signs can be changed, but there can't be any spaces or returns, otherwise the GPS won't correctly read the options. The values for the different options need to be between the = and the & signs.
