    I don't have that model, but a BU-353. It uses a Prolific USB-to-serial driver.
    It's worth a shot.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

        Windows will detect the device, sure.
        But unless you supply the correct drivers for Windows to communicate with the device, it won't function.

          Right-click on My Computer and choose manage. Choose Device Manager on the left and look at Ports to see if the receiver is there. Did you install the driver that came with the receiver before loading the maps from iguidance? Also, try this. I was having the same problem and I finally got it to work.

            it didn't come with a driver that is why i am so confused. And when i checked the site where i bought it from it said the BR 355 doesn't use a driver. If there is a driver can someone send me a link for it.

                btw, from where i bought it from: "Note: Ready to use out of the box. Does not required Driver to be installed on your Pocket PC. Just set baud rate to 4800 and open COM 1 on your GPS Application." it says pocket pc but i think you do need one for pc.
