GPS / Win CE installation problem

I have recently bought a new GPS Device with the model number PWM-3501. However there is no driver given for this device but it was said that it was supported natively in the Windows. When I connect the same device in the pc then its SD card appear with 2 standards USB Mass storage Devices. But soon after that Windows ignores the same and starts to search for a working driver. So, is there anyone who can help me out with this issue? By the way I am using Windows 98.

Re: GPS / Win CE installation problem

I dont think that you require a driver for GPS devices. All you need to do insert it to a serial com port and then set the port rate to 38,400 and the GPS data will be available. Also you need to check that the navigation software has the option of either setting the baud rate to 38,400 or it should be taking the Windows baud rate or auto-detecting.

Even I was facing this issue but now I have got the data transfers to be working with the help of USB with the SD card inside by using the Microsoft's ActiveSync version 3.8. You can download the same file by searching it from google. Hope that this will work for everyone who are facing this similar kind of problem.
