    Does Mappoint work with USB Receivers

    I've heard that Mappoint doesn't work well with USB style GPS Receivers even if they are 0183 Ver. 2.0 compliant, is that true. Also who else sells Laptop USB GPS receivers other than the Earthmate, and Navman E Series, which I heard WILL NOT WORK with Mappoint.

    If you have the proper usb-to-serial drivers for your gps, Mappoint will work. I am using it with the Earthmate. The driver assigns the usb datastream to a virtual com port that mappoint can recognize.
