    well, lo and behold, I tried it again this morning and it worked. I didn't change anything, just rescanned, and it picked it up, works like a charm.

    Well I updated the drivers on my computer with this new one (new one is named USBEMATE1.exe not the old USBEmate_v2.exe).

    It worked! no blue screen when connecting to the com port while using Routis. Also, i locked onto sattelites insanely quick.

    In case anyone still hasnt figured out how to install the Earthmate with serial drivers I'm going to explain here since the Delorme site leaves out a few steps:
    1) Install driver using USBEmate1.exe (http://www.delorme.com/support/gps/uemate005.asp). Select the second option that says you want to use it with non-Delorme software. EDIT: You may want to be sure and restart here

    2) Plug in Earthmate. Wait for windows to detect it.

    3) Go to Device Manager. The Earthmate should be under the 'Human Interface Devices' category. Right click on it and go to properties. (It should say delorme next to manufacturer: ).

    4) Click on Driver tab and click update driver. Select the second option 'Install from a list'. Then select 'Dont search. I will choose driver to install'. Now select the second driver that is displayed. It should be titled Delorme Serial drivers or something close to that. Click next and 'continue anyway' button. Edit: Might need a restart here

    5) Now open device manager and look under Com Ports to see which com port the earthmate was installed under.

    6) Load your mapping software and select the appropriate com port and then Bam! now you mean business.

    Let me know if that helps or if i need to clear anything up.

    Holly $hit, it works. Thanks Mofo. Well I haven't try on my carPC yet, but it works on my desktop and it lock into 7 sats very fast and I am indoor. Well the receiver is on the window.

    From MoFo instruction above, after installed the driver from Delorme, you have to restart the PC as requested by the installation software. That the only thing MoFo left out. COOLLLLLL.

    [edit] Before follow MoFo instruction, I did try to install on my desktop but the PC keep reboot when selecting the COM port. The driver is the one I download couple weeks ago. I am not sure it is the same driver I down load today or not. So that is the different for me. [/edit]

    I'm glad it worked for you MatrixPC. I know how frustrating that blue screen was.

    Yeah, Matrix, I'm up and running. I used it today as a matter of fact. I'm sure you were just asking me that because you were still having problems, but I figured I'd answer ya anyway.

    Ok I have some problem with hibernation again.
    If I have the GPS plugin along with USB wifi card, usb memory card reader, or usb HD, the computer will hibernate. But when restart from hibernation, none of those USB devices work including the GPS.
    If the GPS is NOT plug in when I put the system to hibernate, all those USB devices work as normal when restart from hibernation.
    unplug and replug the GPS or any other USB devices doesn't do much. Basically all usb devices for the system are disappear.
    Any idea?
