My very small 10 cents.
I am pretty sure win 95 had no idea what USB is. I think thats was win98
sp2 region.
Certainly win10 wouldn't understand what that program was.

But that said there are dos emulators/virtual machines that might let you
get away with it. The other comment is if the device is circa 95 then most
likely you will also have GPS week rollover issues.
If the thing is selling for $1 then what the heck. Fun is fun.
Otherwise you may want to consider something a bit newer saving the
headaches and complexity. They seem to start in the $125 range and go up.
There are certainly modern solutions at low cost without the pain.

I suspect if there is a better answer you will get it here. Good luck.
