    I'm not familiar with the holux antenna's, but it doesn't seem right that you have to wait for 20 mins to start it up!! I guess this is a common thing with some people.. Anyways, if you can't find the antenna, maybe it's set to the wrong com port in the computer? I don't know what software you're using, but when I search my com ports in streets and trips it finds it everytime. Maybe you're just comming out of hibernation if you're using it on a laptop computer and it is having problems that way.. but I don't know, 20 mins to boot it up seems kinda crazy?? Maybe it's just a faulty mouse? my bu-353 takes about 3 seconds to boot up,,, maybe check into that mouse?

        What kind of vehicle? Where is the mouse located? Do you have tint?

        Metallic tint, including that on some factory windscreens will interfere with GPS signal reception.

        Could also be your location, you sometimes come across weird 'black-spots'. My GPS mouse usually takes like 40-50 seconds to get a lock...went to a store in another part of Denver and the GPS wouldn't get a lock until after I'd left.

        Could also be a bad GPS mouse...more info please.

            right click on my computer >> properties >> hardware >> device manager, and look for a microsoft serial mouse. If you find it, right click on it and disable it, rather than deleting it.

            If its not that, try using the test program, gpsinfo, that came on the driver disk with your mouse. Watch the data feed and see if it 'cuts out', so to speak. There you can see the satellites and see if the thing is working.

            I've used dozens of those receivers and have never had any issues.

            let us know if you have any luck
