I finally got the GPUSB working with my Meade LX200 GPS, but only after many hours of frustration. The problem turned out to be the connectors from Radio Shack. The plug did not seat properly into the receptacle, not making electrical contact inside. It clicked and secured as expected, leading me to believe that it was connected, but the electrical connection did not occur unless I pushed an extra little bit into the box, then wrapped a rubber band around it to keep it secure. If I had a chance to do this again, I would pay the extra tiny bit and buy the proper cable from ShoeString.
