There are other & better programs you can use to put the info on the gps which they were probably using at the meeting.
 
But first  you never answered if you got software for the adopter & installed it? You do need software so the pc knows to make a "virtual com port" out of the USB. If you didn't get any with it contact the seller & they should help on that, if not get a refund and/or leave negative feedback.

Next does your laptop see the gps when you hook it up & turn it on? If it does try the communicator or maybe EasyGPS (free) or GSAK.


No, I didn't get software with it, just the connector. It doesn't appear that the pc sees the gps. I'll contact the seller and see if there is software.

My guess is coords were put on using GSAK, with that program as long as the computer knows the GPS is there you should be able to put them on your GPS, and you can test drive the software for free too!
