    I'm trying to use Garmin 35 serial with coPilot.
    But I'm having couple problems.
    First when the garmin 35 serial is connected, mouse pointer is jumping all over the place.

    And I don;t know how to make this GPS work with CoPilot

    Help please~~

    I run the Serial RandMcNally GPS and I have to disable the Microsoft Serial Ball Mouse twice to stop the jumping cursor also.

    The computer thinks it's a serial ball mouse. After disabling in XP's device manager, all is good. I have done this for over 1 year succesfully.

    This garmin 35 is Great !! It even gets signal from inside of my apt. ! When I had co-pliot GPS (before I return it) it couldn't do that.
    I love this

    Would any of the serial Garmin work with Copilot? Is the Garmin 35 one of the OEM ones?

    That's stupid Windows XP trying to second guess the user and thinking it has a serial (when did you see one of those last ???) mouse whenever something comes in from the serial port at boot time...
    I don't need no stinkin' startup-shutdown controller... That's what journalized filesystems are for...
