Hi Group!

Can anyone tell me how to configure Microsoft Street & Trips (S&T) software
to accept a GPS connected to the USB port?

I was able to successfully run S&T using the i730 connected to the COM1
port. But I couldn't find a way to configure S&T for a USB GPS. Any ideas?

Thanks

Please note: The map software running on your laptop or other device must
support NMEA 3.0. The GPS feature is designed to operate with a laptop
computer or similar device that is running interactive map software such as
that made by DeLorme or Microsoft.

You can purchase a Motorola serial cable (USB is currently unsupported for
GPS applications) from Motorola parts group at 1-800-422-4210 or online at
www.idenstore.com or through your local service provider sales location.

Offri, thanks for the info.

Since there are few laptops in the market that still have COM ports, I've
heard that some GPS manufacturers offer drivers to emulate a virtual COM
port using a USB connection. Does anyone know if either Motorola or Nextel
has such a driver for the i730?

Thanks again.

For about 10$ on ebay you can buy a USB to SERIAL adapter cable
I can tell you from my own experience that it works perfectly!
for example:
