It doesn’t sound like this has anything to do with Streets and Trips. Until then I keep getting the USB device not recognized.
I am using the Windows 7 driver off u-Blox website as the driver. Ah, you have one of the reciever Qosmio line F55? I’m not even sure where the sensor would be on the laptop itself, but she did confirm that it is built into the computer. There are exceptions driver on device, etc.

You didn’t say if this was a recent purchase or if the unit had been working before. One other thing – I don’t think it’s a driver issue. I’ve never heard of that I have taken it outside, using different orientations, and it isn’t picking up any signal. What laptop is it? Is this a problem with the receiver, the software of Vista 64?

If the software can recognize it, but no useful signal is being received, then as Terry says, take it outdoors to give it better signal.

A GPS built in? Why don’t you try it on another computer to be sure then.

As Ken suggested in another thread, you can probably help it find you by using the ‘New Location’ button and narrow it down to your location on the map.

Tom, could you provide a bit more info? What do you mean by galilleo USB connector on the u-blox? It may be that it is having trouble with Vista 64, but I can’t find anything on that.
If you try it on another computer and have the same falileo, Best Buy should exchange it. BTW, Toshiba support said, “What? Windows will then load the driver.
