So I bought the Holux GPS slim 240 and it works great as a bluetooth device but I can't get it to work in my carputer via usb. I installed the drivers and everything. The actual unit didn't come with a USB cable but aren't they pretty much all the same. The GPS end connects to the really small side and then its just a normal usb connector for computer.
It gives me device is not recognized and its really a pain. I want to use a usb cable so I can turn my car on and the gps unit will turn on. Right now im having to manually flip the switch every time and charging it. It wont work with bluetooth when its connected the the usb cable.
Also I have my computer set to hibernate on ignition shutdown. After it wakes from hibernation I have to manually go into bluetooth places and click connect to device or whatever. When I open my bluetooth wireless headset it automatically detects and connects.
On Holux's site they have an optional usb cable for this unit. Do I need to buy a special cable for this or what. Does anyone else have the same unit and got it working in USB mode.
