Hello shawngormley,

In order for a Windows App to be able to read the GPS data from a NMEA USB GPS Receiver, you'll need to convert the COM port to a "GPS Sensor".
 Please download and install this application, which should be able to convert the COM Port into a GPS Sensor:

1. Extract all files & double click on gps7s64.exe file.
2. Select your COM port for NMEA source
3. Select 4800 baud rate
4. Click Install
5. Now you should see GPS data in the GPS Sensor Utility.
6. Leave this tool running and open up your Navigation App and see if you're able to get it to work.

If you're not able to get it working, then perhaps you can purchase the latest version of this software here: and click on "GPS Direct" and contact the GPS Direct developer for further assistance.

Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks.

I have the BU-353S4 on my Microsoft Surface Pro with Windows 10

I have not found any info except that the S4 does work on Windows 10.

I have used Microsoft Maps, Here Maps, Streets and Map 2013, Google Earth Pro and Goops

I have not had any luck getting any software to
1. pick up the gps
2. give me turn by turn navigation.

Does anyone have step by step and/or videos to help. I don't care what program. I just want turn by turn voice navigation with live gps locate me thing just like our phones have.

Thanks. Been looking for 3 weeks and getting tired of no answers.

Hello igorbasic,

Unfortunately we do not sell displays.

You would have to replace your unit.

Or you would have to source your own LCD
and try to replace it on your own risk.

Android has the USB drivers for our GPS Receivers built-in it's Linux kernel (PL2303), and if your device is running Honeycomb and above (Android 3.1 ~ Android 6.0+), it should work.

To use your USB GPS Receiver on Android, you'll need the GPSInfo app to make your Android device use the external GPS, instead of the internal GPS. You can download the GPSInfo app from here:

If the GPSInfo doesn't detect the GPS, then please try using this app instead:

Then you'll need to enable Mock Locations in the Developer Settings menu. Most devices have Developer Settings hidden, so you'll need to follow this video on how to show Developer Settings:

Then you just plug in the GPS, and you should get a pop up that the GPS was detected, then you click Start GPS and you're set.

Any app that uses GPS will now start using the external GPS for GPS data.

For Android Marshmallow please try using "You are here GPS" app leave it running in the background then open your navigation app.

Hello Mike4tsix

Have you tried the latest driver ?

Make sure your device is unplugged while downloading the driver.
