    You loading maps onto the GPS? If ya are, I take the SD card out and load them on it..................only takes a few minutes................the serial cable on mine is slowwwwwwwwwwwwww................I only use it to download tracks and waypoints, or to use the GPS function on Map Tech or other mapping programs on my laptops!

    You have the latest firmware?
    Is the computer "seeing it"?
