Product drivers

Please refer to the UltiMate GPS Quick Start Guide for getting started with your Mac/Windows/Linux computer.

  • 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.

  • Windows computers require the installation of the UltiMate GPS UM3993 driver.

    Unzip the downloaded file and follow the following steps to install the Windows driver:

    1. After you have connected your UltiMate GPS accessory to your computer with the included USB cable, wait for about 5-10secs.
    2. After the Windows Hardware Wizard opens, select the Install from a list or specific location (Advanced) option and click Next.
    3. Choose the Don't search. I will choose the driver to install option and click Next.
    4. Click on Have Disk and point the Wizard to the unzipped Emprum_UM3993-A.inf file. Click Open and then click OK.
    5. Click Next to install the driver.
    6. A message will appear that the UM3993 UltiMate GPS driver has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows. This message can be ignored (the driver uses the Windows usbser.sys driver that is standard included with Windows and does not install any new drivers). Click on Continue Anyway and wait for the installation to finish. Click Finish.
    7. A reboot of your computer maybe required after the driver installation finishes.
    8. To check the installation, open up the Device Manager and expand the Ports (COM & LPT) line.
    9. Check that there is a line present that says UM3993 UltiMate GPS (COMxx) where xx is a number that the operating system has assigned to the UltiMate GPS accessory.
    10. The COM port settings can be changed under the Properties tab of the UM3993 UltiMate GPS (COMxx) line item.
    11. Click on the Port Settings tab and change the baudrate Bits per second to 57600.
