Mission planner 1.2.84 & 3dr ublox gps

MP does not show a “hardware” button and I cannot get the GPS to activate, GPS module shows red power lite and a blinking blue light indicating a gps lock. MP (1.2.84 version) shows disarmed. How do I arm it in this version or should I download a previous version of mission planner?
Thanks for any help!
