    Notes from Ankaka Customer Service

    • Can I just plug this USB GPS receiver into my laptop and start using GPS right away?
      In addition to this USB dongle, you will also need to install GPS navigation software (not included) on your computer. Once your computer has GPS software, then you are ready to plug in this GPS receiver and start using it.
    • What GPS navigation software will work with this USB GPS receiver? Can I use Microsoft Streets and Trips or _______ that my friend recommended?
      Yes, this USB GPS receiver should be compatible with mapping software like Microsoft Streets and Trips, Fugawi, Mapking, National Geographic TOPO!, iGuidance, and most other software that support NMEA data protocol. However, this product does not come with GPS software and we do not provide support or recommendations regarding software for it.
    • Why can't I find any signals or satellites?
      If it is your first time using this USB GPS receiver, then it will take about 42 seconds (cold start of 42 seconds) to attempt to locate and then calculate a GPS lock. Data acquisition will become faster with more use.
    • Will the magnetic base harm my electronics?
      Absolutely not. The USB GPS receiver's magnet will not interfere with any electronic devices.
