    Bu-something or other Usb gps mouse

    I have a GPS mouse that i bought from the mp3car store some time ago, and i've always had this problem of it being detected.

    it seems like every 1 of 5 boots it will be detected properly, but the rest of the time shows as an unidentified device, and i cannot even force the drivers to work with it(some BS windows message)

    is there a fix for this? or should i just get another GPS mouse?

    I'm assuming you mean GPS reciever and not GPS mouse. But heres a thread that contains some info and a link to the newest driver for the BU-353 GPS Reciever, hope this helps.

    If its the BU 353, thats a pretty good receiver. (mine works flawlessly since I got it)

    Possibly the way its connected ? (is it on a hub? mine is directly into one of the on board usb's) Or as stated above, maybe the driver?
    PDP1170/TRS80/Atari800XL/Amiga500/286/486/P2/P4/C2D/i7 still a newb (but an old newb, been doing this a while) working my way up to "Complete Newb"

    Are you connecting it to a hub? If so, is the USB powered or not?

    I have the same GPS receiver and it's flawless.

    I have the BU-353, and it never picks up satellites!! And when it finds 2 or 3, it's constantly losing them!

    actually i found the problem yesterday,

    i was moving the gps unit around, and decided to unplug it and have a look at the cable.

    the cable has a very small slice in it, looks like it cuts threw one of the wires, i've not yet had a chance to repair it, i was actually thinking of replacing the entire cord since i have to use an extension cable with it anyhow.
