Depending on what kind of device you wish to use your UltiMate GPS accessory with, you might need a driver. Please refer to the list below to find out if you need a driver.
Your UltiMate GPS accessory is plug-and-play if you are using an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad (further referred to as "iPod").
Simply plug the accessory into your iPod, start up your GPS application and you are ready to go. Just make sure you allow the GPS application that you are using to use your location services. You can double check if an application is allowed to use your location by going to the main "Settings" menu on your iPod. Then press on "Location Services", locate the application your are using and make sure the blue switch is in the "ON" position.
In order to take full advantage of the features of your UltiMate GPS accessory, it is recommended that you install Emprum's UltiMate GPS App on your iPod. A full manual for the UltiMate GPS App can be found here.
Mac and Linux computers do not require a driver. The UltiMate GPS accessory will be directly recognized by your computer and show up in your /dev directory as a USB serial port. This port can then be accessed the normal way any other serial port would be accessed on a Mac and Linux computer.
Windows computers require the installation of the UltiMate GPS UM3993 driver which can be downloaded here (please click on "here"). This driver works on all versions of Windows, including Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Unzip the downloaded file to a location on your computer (e.g. your Desktop) and follow the steps below to install the Windows driver. The instructions below are specifically outlined for Windows XP, but are very similar for Windows Vista and Windows 7.
