What USB GPS dongles have you successfully used with Windows 7 x64?

Hi all,

Found this forum googling.

I've upgraded my 'travel' laptop from XP to Windows 7 x 64. What USB corded GPS units have you successfully used in Windows 7 (GPS + driver set)? I don't need a bazillion satellites tracked at one time. It's typically used for 'you are here' on 1000 mile trips.

I use Mappoint 2006 and 2009 for compatibility. My good old trusty Holux 210 just died.

Suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Tom,

Welcome to Laptop GPS World.

I'd look into the USB BU-353 GPS receiver in your situation. I cannot say with a 100% certainty that it will work under the new Windows 7, but it does have a Vista 64-bit driver available.

I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 on my HP nx9420 laptop. My BU-353 works fine. I loaded the 64 bit Vista driver from USGlobalSat.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the replies that actually addressed the question I had, and not unrelated rambling!
