    Same problem with Vista Home Edition-SP1.
    Vista can not find the driver after running the driver executable from the CD or even from on the CD.

Go to the Holux support website at:
http://www.holux.com/JCore/en/support/downloadCenter.jsp

NOTE: All quote marks are added by me for emphasis only.

Under the "Select products Catagory" dropdown choose "GPS Receiver/Data Logger".
Under the "Select products series" dropdown choose "Mouse Type GPS Receiver" and

click on Submit. A new page opens showing various receivers. Scroll down to the GR-213u

GPS Receiver and see the one called "GR-213u Driver Program-Vista Driver". It is of a type

of file compression called "rar" which may require a unzip program. I use a free program,

"Secure Zip for Windows". Click on the little yellow box at the far right of the "GR-213u

Driver Program-Vista Driver" line. It will be labeled "9618869.rar". Save the file.
It should be found by clicking on the Vista START and then your user name & should be in

the "Downloads" folder as "9618869.rar".
Creat a new folder for the actual unzipped file by clicking on the the Vista START Icon

& then "Documents". Click on the "Organize" tab & then on the dropdown "New Folder".
Name the new folder "Holux Vista Drvr" & then open it.
Now back at the "Downloads" folder open (Unzip) the "9618869.rar" file. Copy the new

folder "GR-213u Driver Program-Vista Driver" to the "Holux Vista Drvr" folder you created

in "Documents", so that you can later delete all those files that may have built up in

"Downloads"folder from doing lots of downloading.
Open the "GR-213u Driver Program-Vista Driver" folder & see the setup file

"PL2303_Prolific_Vista_3301.exe". The size should be about 2724 KB. Open it to start the

driver install. Now you are almost done.
After Vista has done its driver install, go to "Control Panel" & open "Device Manager".

Now plug in your Holux GR-213 & the "Device Manager" should now show a new entry

called "Ports (COM & LPT). Click on the little + sign to expand it & you should see

"Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM#)". The # represents your Comm Port number

used by the Holux. Right click on "Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM#)" & click on

the dropdown "Properties". Click on the tab "Port Settings"at the top of the "Properties"

window. Change the value in "Bits per second" from 9600 to 4800 & click OK.
Hopefully you have installed the Holux Utility "GPS Viewer" with a shortcut on the

desktop. Open the "GPS Viewer" & click on "Scan". A new window "GPS Scanning" opens

showing GPS found at the same Comm Port # that shows in the "Device Manager". Click on

OK & the scan window closes now showing the same Comm Port#. Click on "Open GPS" &

then on "Cold Start or Warm Start" & all the satellites found should show up. You can close

the "GPS Viewer" & all the other open windows. If all went as described any software you

used with Win XP using GPS should work OK now with Vista.
Now run your software (MS S&T or whatever) & make sure its GPS Settings show the same

Comm Port# as in "GPS Viewer" & baud rate of 4800.

Can't install driver for Vista for a GR-213


I'm not sure if this will help. I have had more than a few problems with Vista not installing drivers. One solution is when the installition cd in loaded in the drive, right click on the cd icon in Computer. Choose open, search for the setup.exe file and double click on it. After and If it installs, you may have to right click on the shortcut icon to and under the compatibality tab, check the box for run in compatilibity mode for XP.

Tomtom one xl gps


"I tried to upgrade my version to 2.3 After downloading and installing I get an error message. "HOMERuntime.exe failed to start. Error 0: Tom Tom has no solution I tried reinstaling the old version and now I gat the same error"

I've been having this very same problem for weeks now and resolved tonight to fix it! After much searching around on the WWW, I found the answer on a French site (luckily I understand French). Like you, I'd uninstalled and reinstalled around 4 times without success and still rec'd the error msg. emot-cheering.gif
So, uninstall the existing program. Reinstall again -BUT this time install it DIRECTLY to the C: drive not in 'programs'. I think you will find it then works. Mine does and I hope yours does too
