First off, you need to download and install the older USB-to-serial port drivers for the Delorme Earthmate from the Delorme support site. Have you noticed I’ve been using the past tense here?

Delorme LT (USB) & Windows 7 (64 Bit)?
BUT this compatibility fix should have been a no-brainer for them to support their current customer base. Locate DeLorme Serial Usn. Chris pretty much summed it up and previous links and threads from last year have been posted here to address this subject about as thoroughly as is possible. Yes, my password is: Twist the black wire and the ground cable together and solder them to the negative post as shown Left.
Sexually explicit or offensive language. I’ve had hands-on experience using Tru-Traffic with a few different types of GPS receivers, and they’re not equal.
Install battery cover and you are done. Seriao actually bought the BU so i didn’t have to mess with blue tooth or worry about a battery dying.
I found the exact battery that the BT uses on this website called Mouser Electronics at a much cheaper price than what Delorme sells them for.
Summary Thank goodness for the web and folks like CNET that gives us freedom to make helpful postings computerists in need.
This GPS receiver also omits pretty much all information about the satellites, but Tru-Traffic doesn’t really use that information except to display to the user for help in diagnoses. Make alterations and use with your computer at your own risk. See the discussion of that software above for more details. I normally do this so I can access all programs easily if i decide to create a second user account in Windows for whatever reason.

Delorme LT (USB) & Windows 7 (64 Bit)? | Stormtrack
Mar 2, Messages: They are inexpensive and there is nothing special about the LT I have a new Windows 7 64 Bit notebook and just about every program I got works flawlessly even the ones that did not in the “Vista nightmare” last year. This new one does work as a standalone unit and is supposed to have a longer battery life. Response times will vary due to fluctuations in volume and staffing.
Pros Works well with older 32 bit versions of Windows XP or earlier Cons Incompatible with most versions of Vista especially bit Incompatible with all versions of Windows 7 No vendor support Do not attempt to install on Vista 64 or any version Windows 7 Sub This is a software based serial ubs emulator that allows USB GPS devices to communicate with two or more applications at one time.
I don’t know if these problems persist with more current models, but the experience of some Tru-Traffic users in North Carolina does not sound promising.
DeLorme Serial Emulation Driver for Earthmate® GPS Receivers
There are no special drivers needed for this USB application. The file it says to download is an unknown file type.
The DeLorme Serial Emulator is a system tray utility that provides access to the settings and status of an Earthmate reciever. None delormr us know what’s the pattern. I have bluetooth on my laptop and know that’s working.
Buy a standard USB cable about 3 Ft. Login or create an account to post a review. The one huge thing to check is the installation of the 64 bit driver per Franson’s instructions here: Dflorme is what I’d do based on where you are.
This isn’t critical, and it may sefial even matter, but without such a chipset, it’s likely to have difficulty maintaining a fix in low-signal conditions, such as urban canyons or under tree canopies.
Green and White wires are not used. Once reported, our staff will be notified and the comment will be reviewed. It is amazing how well this unit performs now that it has a good power source.
