    Yes and yes.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    You'll have to use xport to get it to work properly if you plan on using hibernation though.

    What is xport? I am using it w/ hibernation without any issues and to my knowledge, I am not using xport. I just installed the drivers that it came with and it shows as a comport.

    Really? Whenever I go into hibernation, windows fails to reinitialize the usb-serial driver, and causes an error in any program that trys to use the nmea data. xPort is a virtual port replicator. It lets you use your gps device for a number of different programs instead of just one. It also resets the serial driver after hibernation.

    I don't have that problem.
    I use GPSGate, which is similar in fucnction to xPort. That may be the reason.
