Install the drivers before you plug in the GPS. Then follow the directions both in the setup and on the website. There may be other things that you need to update before things will work right.

    Here is the link. I didn't see any updates but, you can contact their customer service. There is a detailed manual on this site and it shows how to totally reset the unit. I've found that instructions are usually better online, since you can see the language of your choice, not jumping through a book printed in 6 different languages.

Let your Installation Wizard handle it. It seems to install the USB driver just fine.

If there is, right click it and choose update driver. Then follow the prompts to locate the new driver. This shou;d solve the problem.
