    Yes, but he has a serial gps so unplugging it will do nothing except stop the mouse from jumping if it ever starts.

    I think yours is only relative if you have a USB GPS that makes a virtual com port. Hence why you say driver.

    Serial GPS units don't use drivers like the USB GPS units.

    The way I use to solve the problem in my old setup with my RandMcNally was to wait for the mouse to jump, then pull the power port on it (PS2).

    Goto device manager and then right click and disable.
    Then re-plug the ps2 power port for the gps and no jumping.

    After no system changes, the mouse would do this two more times after certain reboots. I would repeat the steps above and it would fix it. I would do this a total of 3 times and it seemed to stop it. I ran my CarPC install without formatting for 1-1/2 years and the mouse never jumped after the disabling 3 times.

    If you use hibernate though, you may only have to do this once. Unless your system reboots and possibly detects it as a serial mouse.

    block gps as a mouse

    I see that some people are still strugling with a jumping mouse coused by the GPS recognized as a mouse.
    for those who don't want to click a registery fix al the time that it happens, download this program

    it is in dutch but is rarely simple, search the com port for your gps eg com1 for a serial one or maybe com 6 for a USB one, check the checkbox.
    and the plug and play option is disabled. no more grazy mouse!!
