    USB->Serial adapter in Holux GPS receiver

    I'm using a Holux M-215U GPS receiver. It is connected with USB, but the device manager reveals there's a usb->serial adapter inside.

    So, my problem.. It varies whether the GPS gets loaded after each restart or suspend. Every now and then (quite often if suspending) the COM-port does not appear in my device manager, and i'll have to unplug/replug it or restart.
    Any clues on how to solve this problem? I'm using windows now btw, but I had the exact same issue in linux.
    Is there a way to virtually unplug and replug it?

    If not, I was hoping somebody could recommend me a USB GPS device which actuall works - and copes with suspend! And maybe one with >1Hz update rate.

    Cheers!

    Is it plugged into a USB hub or directly to the motherboard?
    If it's plugged into a USB hub, try it connected to a port on the motherboard, using an extension if you need.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    No, it's plugged directly to the mb..
