I can not get the app to recognize the GPS.The app uses the IP location ok as long as there is an internet connection. But I have tried both the sensor driver and the com port driver. Still not luck. The computer is a Microsoft Surface Pro 3.

New information.  FltPlan Go app uses the Windows Location Sensor.  But that driver shows in the install events log:
Device USB\VID_1546&PID_01A7\6&d32dae1&0&3 was not migrated due to partial or ambiguous match.
How do I fix this?
If you are talking about u-blox driver then uninstall all u-blox drivers and then install only sensor driver.
Are you sure that the device you are using (the one that has u-blox 7 in it) routes u-blox USB port out?  Most devices would take u-blox UART and route it out with UART to USB converter - in this case u-blox drivers are not applicable.

Does uCenter see the device as a COM or Sensor?

What does the software expect to see? What does their support suggest either as expectations or known working devices/configurations?

uCenter can see the device as a Sensor. Fltplan support told me that the app should be set to internal GPS. The only choice is "Windows GPS". There are ADS-B options that can be customized. All it asks for is a name and a port.  I tried uninstalling the sensor driver and installing the virtual port driver. It did show com port 3 in device manager.
This is Fltplan support comments:
The way you connect to an external GPS device on FltPlan Go is as follows:
    - Connect your tablet or laptop to the USB GPS
    - In FltPlan Go make sure that Window's GPS is selected.
When your tablet or laptop is connected to an external GPS device, FltPlan Go reads that as your internal GPS.

Please make sure that you have Location Services enabled for FltPlan Go on your device:
    - Settings - Privacy - Location.
This does not work with either sensor device or the virtual com port driver.
