Hi, I have a LR kit, and on a Windows 10 laptop, the devices are not detected. I am using a micro USB that is typically used to charge a portable battery (could this be the problem? maybe there are lacking some data pins?).
I disconnect the PC from the internet, then plug in the USB cable (which is powering the base through the power+GPS port), but nothing appears in the device manager (following ublox’s driver selection guide, it should appear a COM device: https://www.u-blox.com/sites/default/files/USBDriverWindowsSelectionGuide_%28UBX-15022403%29.pdf). Even doing the same with the PC connected to the internet, nothing happens. Of course, u-center does not detect anything.
Thank you.

Edit: after buying a cable intended for data transference, it is now working. Thanks.
