TMW-1000 driver download and installation for Windows


Important (Windows 7 in particular): Choose not to get the latest drivers from Windows Update BEFORE Tracemyworld's driver installation, following these steps:

1) Go to "Control Panel" -> "Hardware and Sounds" -> "Devices and Printers"

2) Right-click on your PC icon and open the "Device Installation Settings menu"

3) Select "No, let me choose what to do" and "Never install driver software from Windows Update"

(at the end of the installation you can set this option back to your preferred settings)

In order to use the logger, you have to install the TraceMyWorld GPS Utilities, which basically are a device driver and a particular application. Don't worry, they are not harmful, but they are needed to let your computer see and communicate with the device.
Here is how the installation look like.

Troubleshooting for Windows 7 users

A popup window will appear, please select "Browse my computer for driver software", and choose the path (use the "Browse..." button) of the currently installed drivers: "C:\program file (x86)\Tracemyworld GPS Util\TSI_Driver". Click on "include subfolders", confirm and you're done!
