From your description of the symptoms I would lean toward an intermittent USB connector on the u-Blox if you aren’t experiencing problems with other USB devices. Yes, it is the qosmio F55 series. The issue is that it refuses to load the driver when its plugged in, therefore it doesn’t show in device manager. I think its with the u-blox also. Tom, could you provide a bit more info? I’ve never heard of that

u-Blox 5 GPS and Galileo receiver not recognized by Streets & Trips – Laptop GPS World
Windows will then load the driver. The CD wouldn’t load at all. If the software can recognize it, but no useful signal is being received, then as Terry says, take it outdoors to give it better signal. Why don’t you try it on another computer to be sure then.
This is hardware, besides, they’re supposed to even exchange software if the DVD is defective. That is what my computer says is on com port 3.
What computer are you talking about? Is this a problem with the receiver, the software of Vista 64? Tom, could you provide a bit more info? I have taken it outside, using different orientations, and it isn’t picking up any signal. As it is in cold start mode, it might u blox 5 gps and galileo receiver some time.

I spent some time with Toshiba last night and the gal was unfamiliar with it. I’ve run out of ideas. As Ken suggested in u blox 5 gps and galileo receiver thread, you can probably help it find you by using the ‘New Location’ button and narrow it down to your location on the map. Also some people have problems with that GPS and other dongle type units if they don’t use the included extension cable.
If the purchase was recent did you get it from a dealer with an exchange program or warranty?
The issue is that it refuses to load the driver when its plugged in, therefore it doesn’t show in device manager. THe GPS antenna is probably located at the top bloz the screen. There are exceptions driver on device, etc. I am using the Windows 7 driver off u-Blox website as the driver.

If it says ‘Searching for Satellites, leave it with a good view of the sky for a while. You can check by the satellite bars whether something is happening. I’ve tried the driver on Windows Update also.
It appears u-Blox is retiring some u-Blox 5 devices.
Ah, you have one of the new Qosmio line F55? What do you mean by intermittent USB connector on the u-blox? It doesn’t sound like this has anything to do with Streets and Trips.
I think its with the u-blox also. Did I miss part of this thread? I’m not even sure where the sensor would be on the laptop itself, but she did confirm that teceiver is built into the computer. I’ve read every thread I can find, and still can’t get this working with Microsoft Streets and Trips.
What laptop is it?
