I changed an existing Vendor / Product ID (total of 4 bytes) to the one I had written into the GPS and the next time I tried connecting to mount - nothing. reloaded old driver - mount works again. Problem is I am extremely inexperienced with Linux and it takes me far longer than it should to look up even the simplest stuff.

So it works now? Or just the mount?

Dana, you read Serial Port Mapping tutorial I presume? This is not suppose to take a lot of time, unless there is no information at all to distinguish between devices. In this case, I'd probably use "Auto-Search" and let it find the devices automatically.

Just the mount works. GPS is in the trash. I will have to buy another one. When that arrives I will not plug it into my USB hub, I will have to plug it in to the USB on the other side of the laptop, so UDEV can differentiate between it and my mount by USB bus. Previously they were on the same bus and it was random as to which got recognized and given a name first. It's a Linux problem that windows somewhat shared. With Windows I had to be careful to always plug the same device into the same port to assign the same COM port.

Maybe you was too quick with the GPS. It is up to you but you can try to debug it a bit more. I simply doubt that it is totally toasted. Did it show up on the lsusb list? If it does the kernel and the core USB driver is *talking* to it and it is *responding*. Otherwise, if it is not there you are right - it is probably toasted.
