  • BU-303 not working correctly

    I have a problem with my BU-303 GPS mouse.

    I have installed it on my pc and laptop, and have the same problem with both.


    After I have installed the driver and plug in the mouse. I have a problem getting my pc/laptop to recognise the com port assigned to the mouse. Using the application that came wit the mouse, I click the ‘scan com port’ button and sometimes it will find the port and others it wont. I have tried connecting using two application, Autoroute and InfoMap. Also tried using HyperTerminal.

    When it does work, it does so for a bout 2 or 3 minuets and the problem persists until I reboot or mess about with the com port settings.

    Is it the unit or my PC and Laptop, they are both running Win2k.

    Thanks for any help,

    Mik

        I have this exact same issue when i connect my mobile phone to my computer if I have power hungry things attached to the same USB host. might be work unplugging anything else u have, (i assume your not using an unpowered hub)

          Works fine for me.

          My Microsoft Mappoint saw it easily as a com port, I did have to install all the Windows Updates on one of the computers because I hadn't done it in a while (Windows 2000).

          Try that, if not...you've got a defective one or try another USB slot so it automatically adds more com ports.

            I think its a com port conflict, what other applications use your com ports ?

            check this out, uninstall all of them, install the gps first and then the other applications.

            Things to look out for:

            Microsoft Activesync
            Cellphone software (number updates, phone books etc)
            Bluetooth applications

            and you get the idea, its probably somehting that looks for the com port every few minutes to do a sync / update that is messing you around.

                    In my case, the com port is not recognized by the software from the cd, but my gps software works ok more or less.
