Do a search on this forum for "communicator plugin" and all will be clear.

As of now the Firefox work around seems to be working. Hopefully GS will offer a real fix for PM's because it looks like all browsers will soon do away with the plug in. There are several threads here on the plug in topic, and it appears that Chrome is the most preferred here.

Internet explorer and Firefox still will work with the send to GPS function.

The send to GPS is not a Groundspeak issue. It is an issue with the GPS manufacturer and the web browsers. Chrome stopped allowing add on's.

Firefox and IE 11 still do. I use a Delorme PN60. My windows 7 laptop

Just died. So I went and bought a new laptop computer with Windows 10.

The new browser from Microsoft, Edge (the new browser)also will not allow add on's.

But I can run Firefox and IE 11 and still use the send to function.

You may also need to make sure that the USB port is turned on.

I have never had that problem, but for some reason some people

Are having it. For some reason that port is getting turned off.
