Hi

What program are you using on the PC to communicate with GPS? Your message is a bit vague. Have you got VantagePoint? What operating system is on the PC? Apparently there are issues with Windows 7.

Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Hi Greg
I'm running vantage point,also windows vista home premium,the outdoors shop that I brought it from is the only place here on the north coast that sells the unit,and they tried but don't know how to do it,they offered me my money back,but I wanted the unit so I am trying to get help elsewhere.

Looks like this is a pretty common problem

Have a look at the following link for intructions to get the device recognised (links on this page for XP or Vista with full instructions)
