    Question BU-353 extension cable

    Hello guys!

    I have the Bu-353 working very well with Iguidance but the cable is to short to mount the GPS outside my GrandCherokee, so I bought an USB extension like 3 feet long and the GPS is not working... when I plug it to the USB port it sounds the windows bell like it was detected, but when using the scan ports utility it is not found...

    I changed the USB extension for another shorter, 1.5 ft and still the same problem.. If I don't use the extension the GPS works fine...

    Any ideas???

    skadoo may be right. What are you plugging it into right now, directly into the mobo's usb port? Try a POWERED hub (not the self-powered junk), and perhaps try in your home computer. Some USB ports are just weak, and don't give many amps to them.

    good luck
