My last post wasn't accurate, I have to use a physical port because the software I am trying to use wont list the virtual ports.
I start GpsGate connected to COM 6 which is the Bluetooth GPS Com Port. I use physical port COM 9 and COM 3 for the Output of GpsGate. I have a green icon from GpsGate.
In my mapping software COM 9 is listed but when I connect it says there is no gps receiver. This happens in Outdoor Navigator, GPSInfo and Streets & Trips.
COM 9 is listed as "Qdata" COM 3 as "IrCOMM"
The problem seems to be these physical ports wont work and the Outdoor Navigator Software will not see any other ports. I was hoping GpsGate would give me a work around.
I think the problem is COM 9 is not really available, but I do not get an error message from GpsGate when I connect.
