5.0 out of 5 stars Great GPS but lacking documentation, 27 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The GPS works fine under Windows 7 64bit. I had no problems installing - Windows 7 found the driver on the Internet but you can run "CP210x_VCP_Win_XP_S2K3_Vista_7.exe" on the supplied CD to install the necessary drivers for Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.

To speed up the first location fix, you can run the program "Rom agps.exe" in the folder "ROM_AGPS_0801" on the CD. This connects to an FTP server at Skytraq (the folk who make the innards of the GPS), downloads recent about the GPS satellites and sends it to the GPS.

Note that the GPS defaults to a serial baud rate of 9600 (note that Google Earth uses 4800 baud only). If you want to change the baud rate or other GPS settings, such as the use of WAAS/EGNOS, you may want to search the Internet for a file called "Skytraq_GPS_Software.zip" - this contains a really handy Skytraq utility called "GPS Viewer".
