    BU-303 with MapPoint 2004?

    I have the ebay mouse BU-303 usb receiver, and was wondering if MS Mappoint 2004 will work with this? I thought I read somewhere that mappoint needs a COM port to work, but Im not sure and couldnt find anything definative through searching. Thanks for any help.

    it does need a com port but most usb gps's will install a virtual com port usually 4 or 5

    It works great with it. I have the same reciever and I use Map Point 2004 as well. No problems, it installed on com 3 for me. make sure to use the driver software included and you should have no probs...

    I have the BU-303 and Mappoint 2004. I have great difficulty getting my GPS unit to lock on to satalites. I have the mouse placed on my front dash with a clear view to the sky. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks
