The UM7 doesn't work with the UM6 driver, it's a different protocol. We investigated doing a "quick port" for the community, but discovered it wasn't a "quick port" sort of task.

Adding to this answer, a colleague of mine has started that port in this repo based on the UM6 driver. I believe it is functional but I am not completely aware of its state. Give it a try.
