Hi Larry...I just purchased a 9 pin to USB adapter and have just used it with a Mapsource cd. The connection is recognized as a regular serial port for my system. In my case I let the Mapsource software do an autodetect and it saw the connection as Com4. Of course the GPS must be turned on during this step. Hope you get connected.
