    WHere is the actual antenna mounted? It's gotta be directly under your window or mounted outside of your car so it is in direct SIGHT of the sky above. Any opaque obstruction (especially a car's metal body) will keep your GPS from getting a signal. If that doesn't work (as you mentioned there was NO light activity) then you have a defective GPS or USB port. Try a different USB port, and if all else fails, you need a new gps mouse

        Try deinstalling and starting over.

        Install the drivers first before you plug in the GPS unit. Then after you're done with all that and it's plugged in, check the Ports section in the Device Manager and see if the unit is listed with an associated COM port. Check that COM port in GPS Viewer.

        hope that helps,

          As soon as you plug it in, the green light has to come on. It's just a led. You don't even need to install any driver.

          If it doesn't come on, you probably got a defective unit. Try it on a USB port that you know is working.
