Through the USN cable that runs between the radio and the computer.

Really? Then how does one explain how I was able to do it yesterday and the day before just fine?

Tis is the crux of the problem. When I press the Transmit tab, nothing happens. Nothing, nada, a handful of nothing. It just sits there like blob. Even if if I left click on my location on the screen then go to the Lat/long line of my location, click that, I then clicked on "Move ME to this location". Nothing happens, According to ASPRISCE, I am lcated in Montreal, regardless oif reality, or by telling it wherre I should be. ASPSISCE has indicated that it doesn't give a rat's rump where I really am, it is going to put my icon where it wants me to be.
