RE: GPS-USB/PC Navigation System "Windows 7"

The problem most definitely is with the Driver. I have been in contact with Magellan, but I am really having a tough time communicating with there help deck in India. They are like talking to a wall via a keyboard. The Magellan is set up exactly the same as the old Garmin. The garmin is a VERY old, very DUMP unit where as the Magellan is very modern and much smarter. Again yesterday I tested both GPS's on the old XP computer with out any problems on both units. The reason that I replaced the old XP PC was the the screen wasn't bright enough for use in the sunlight of the pilot house. The New Windows 7 PC has a back lit LED/LCD screen which is very bright.
Thanks, Rob
