I've only just discovered this program(!) and tried it with my Delorme 
Earthmate.  I couldn't get it to work, probably for configuration reasons.  I 
know the unit is working as I can use it with my palm pda.  There are a few 
questions and suggestions I'd like to make:

Is Earthmate compatible with one of the known devices or should I pick 
Settings|Options|GPS Type: Other ?

What are the implications of choosing Other?

Not having a spec for my Earthmate I don't know what baud rate it's running at, 
does anyone know?  I could just plug it in and run Hyperterminal to try to get 

My pda shows the bytes streaming from the receiver.  Whilst this is just 
gobbledegoop (to me) it's very useful in that it shows that the device is 
running and the bytes are getting in to the software.  This would be a useful 
addition to WinPlotGPS (maybe it already has this feature(?))

Any other suggestions for getting it running would be appreciated.
