Hi.
I purchased a LassenIQ GPS USB eval kit.
I've installed the USB driver.
It all works fine as long as I use the Trimble application.

Problem is when I try to hook it up to my serial connection so that I can read the data via HyperTerminal. No matter what baud rate and settings I put in to HyperTerminal and the USB driver via the WinXP Device Manager, I only get gibberish in HyperTerminal.

Can anyone guide me in what I may be doing wrong?

I've tried to follow the posted instructions, but those seem to be for a USB eval kit that has serial ports as well.

Thanks in advance.

Have you looked through all of the docs on Sparkfun's site?

I see that you had also posted this question in Sparkfun's forums. I'm sure they'll be able to help ya out quicker than the TRC (considering that's where we get the LassenIQ):
