Yes, the extension cable is important because it helps to extend the receiver away from the host device so that a GPS fix can be obtained.

First, we need to make sure that your device works properly. Please uninstall the PL-2303 USB-to-Serial driver. You can do this by going to Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program. Select the said driver and delete it. Once it's removed, turn off your computer and wait for a few minutes. Start up your computer and install this driver: http://www.usglobalsat.com/store/download/650/win_7_usb_driver.zip

Now, utilize the said cable and plug-in the ND-100. Bring your HP Compag CQ outside under an open sky and test the device with the GPSInfo program. Select the correct com port (go to Ports under Device Manager), choose the appropriate baud rate, and click on 'Start GPS'. Run the program for a few minutes to see if you're getting a 3D fix in 'Status'. Take note if the blue light on the ND-100 is blinking.

Let me know how it goes.

When you plugged in the ND-100 to your computer (using the provided extension cable), does the blue light blink or is it just steady on?

Plug in the device to your computer and check the port used in the Device Manager. Run the GPSInfo program as an administrator (refer to the previous post). Select the com port and baud rate and click on Start GPS. You should see some scrolling data on the window below. If that doesn't work, close the program and unplug the device. Open up the utility once more, follow the appropriate steps, and choose a different baud rate.

Let me know how it goes.

ND-100 with the M-Star chipset is phased out. For that reason, there will be no updated firmware tool available anymore. Sorry for the inconvenience incurred.
