Streets & Trips says: No GPS Receiver Found

Hi Pravus,

Welcome to Laptop GPS World.

You might have tried this many times already, but try one more time in the following order:

1) Unplug the MSN Direct / GPS receiver combo from your computer

2) Restart computer

3) Plug the MSN/GPS unit to computer

4) Start Streets & Trips and don't do anything for 15 to 30 seconds. S&T 2008 should automatically attempt to detect the MSN Direct receiver

5) On Streets & Trips menu bar go to Tools > GPS > Configure

6) Press the "Scan" button

7) Do you see "Microsoft GPS device found?"

8) If yes, highlight it and click "OK"

Pravus,

I'm no expert on this, but it sounds like you have a conflict somewhere. I pulled my hair out trying to reslove my issue until I changed COM ports. I was able to detect the MSN receiver on COM13, but it wouldn't find the GPS. Also, I couldn't even get it to find the GPS alone.

Try a different COM port AND, if you have an internal modem, try to disable that. Disabling the modem seemed to cure all my problems.

Have you read all the posts in this topic? Hit some of the links provided by these guys, especially the Microsoft ones.

Good luck and let us know...
