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

      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.
