Newbie here. Using trial version of MapPoint 2010 Europe. Have entered mapping info for trip to Ireland on next week but am unable to use Delorme Earthmate GPS LT-20 receiver for satellite navigation. Found a serial emulator online that worked with Windows XP, but now I am using Windows 7. Do you know a way to make MP 2010 work with this Delorme Earthmate GPS LT-20 receiver? If not, is there a list of compatible GPS receivers that work with MP 2010? Thanks for your help.

Have you checked with Delorme (or whoever makes the receiver for them - they're just a repackager for hardware, like Microsoft often are) - they should have a serial driver so that the receiver meets the industry standard NMEA-0183 standard.
