    Do you have 'GPS info' to test it out ??

    What have you got the com port settings set to in the driver ??

    If you don't have any programs, how do you know if it's working or not?

    Download http://www.usglobalsat.com/downloads/GPSinfo.zip and run the GPSinfoPC program.

    In Device Manager under com ports, you should be able to adjust the com port and baud rate for it. I dunno what driver it is, but I would imagine you can do this. Set it to a com port you want to use and set the baud to 4800.

    GPSinfo is pretty much self explanatory...

    1) Buy GPS software of your choice (iGuidance seems to be preferred by many around here)
    2) Install it
    3) Open it, go to settings and tell it your GPS is on Com 4
    4) Tell it starting oint is "current GPS position" and seect the destination
    5) It will route you there

    If it's recieving data then it's working, click on the GPSInfo tab on the bottom to take you to the sat lock/info bit of ther program..
