I have no product key for my Canmore GT-730F(L) USB GPS Stick Data Logger

I've had a Canmore GT-730F(L) USB GPS Stick Data Logger for a while, but I have no product key.

Can any one help?
GadgetGirl
Do you need a product key for a receiver? Or do you mean drivers? Usually product keys are for software or for unlocking maps.

If it's drivers you need, there are some at Canmore GT-730F(L) USB GPS Tracker Stick Data Logger (click on Download & FAQ)

Does Windows recognize the unit? What GPS navigational software are you trying to use?

I need the product Key to lock the Maps so I can read my locations. It may have 28 numbers and letter to it. It was on the back of the CD cover.

Are these Garmin maps like City Navigator? If they are, you will probably have to call Garmin.
If you have at some point unlocked your maps online, you should be able to get the unlock code from your online account. (I'm not sure if this is possible though with a non-Garmin unit.)
If the maps are a few years old, you may just want to buy updated maps.

Garmin map unlock codes are specific to Garmin GPS products. If you already have Garmin maps you acquired with a previous Garmin GPS product, the code would only work with that GPS. If you are using the maps with nRoute, GPS Gate may help you resolve this though.

Have you ever used these maps? What application were you using them with? A Garmin handheld, nRoute, Mobile PC??? We need more info in order to help you.

This is the item I'm talking about CANMORE ELECTRONICS CO., LTD.

That's the USB GPS stick, and that should not require any "product key" to function.

Did that USB GPS unit come with a mapping software product, which you require a product key for? If yes, what is the software name?
damagicx
It came with a CD that reads "GPS receiver, Bluetoohth, and USB dongle" on it.
tcassidy
The Bluetooth key would be '0000' but there is not likely to be any mapping software on that CD.

Where is it asking you for a Product Key? Product keys are used for unlocking the mapping software and/or the maps. You basically have hardware and hardware drivers but no maps or mapping application. You need to purchase software such as Microsoft Streets & Trips to get this to work.
This is a line on page 5 from the User Manual on the referenced Web page:

5) Load your GPS mapping or routing software, along with the corresponding maps of the areas that you are occupying or plan to travel. Start the application. Make sure the application is set for the COM port that your Laptop/UMPC device will use for serial communication. Now you should be ready to use your GPS application as directed by the user documentation that came with the software. More configurations may be necessary

He needs the key code that registers the product and unlocks it. Have you checked the website or called the manufacture for the key code? Most of the time you can email their support with your product serial number and they can give you the key code. Sometimes the key code can be found on or in the disc sleeve.

There is no code needed to unlock the GPS or data logger. The only code involved with that product involves some photo tagging software according to the website.

I have just received my Canmore GT-730F(L), and in the instructions they state to get the new photo-tagging software from their website. Having done so, after installing, when you go to "read the device", the tagging software prompts the user for a Product ID code. There is none to be found.

They ship this with an ~2.5" CD with the drivers & the "user manuals" (leave much to be desired in my opinion) on it, but no Product ID on the paper cover - or anywhere in or on the packaging. Since the unit I bought does not have a battery in it (or Bluetooth it seems), I'm guessing this is just the "logging stick" and they send the software pkg for the "Bluetooth GPS" with it to provide the drivers to detect it on the USB. Not what I thought I was buying, but did get it. So, their photo-tagging software may be "a bust" and you'll (like me) have to find something else to get the data log from the stick.

If anyone does have a way for this to work, I also would love to know.
