This is really a neat product. I’ve used it on my way from LAX to the hotel in LA during PDC. Actually we used it on a co-workers 32-bit laptop. I liked it so much that I decided to go and buy it at the MS company story. SOLD OUT. I had to wait 4 weeks but now it’s back in stock. I stopped by on my way back from work to pick it up. At home, unpacking and installing the software (complete install w/ Pocket Streets for Smartphone). Installation done after inserting the "run disk" and a few more minutes of wait time.

Now plugging in the USB cable that connects the tiny GPS receiver to the USB port.


Found New Hardware wizard….

AAaaahhhh "Cannot install this hardware" USB-Serial Controller…


I completely forgot that I use the Ferrari 4000 with XP x64. All the stuff I installed over the last months obviously either had a 64-bit driver or didn’t require any.

Who the hell did not think about this neat feature and fogot to port the driver? Why is there no driver for this freakin’ cable? One would assume a product with "2006" in the name ships with the driver and tools ready for next year. But this is yesterday stuff. I guess the actual GPS locator also requires a driver and this thing is also not available.

Do you know a trick (64-bit driver) to make it work?
