Getting GPS to Work with MaxSea 10

Hello everyone...I recently bought a Pharos GPS-500 to go with Max Sea 10. I cannot get the GPS to work with Max Sea. The GPS is USB and I set it to the com port that is linked to the GPS.

I was reading the help file in Max Sea and I think a USB GPS will work. Do anyone have any experience with this GPS? If so what am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Did you check the port with hyperterminal to see if the computer is recieving the sentences from the GPS? Make sure the baud rate is what MaxSea is expecting. Also, sometimes Windows XP will identfy a GPS as a mouse pointing device - check the device manager and delete that mouse if it is there.
