TTN6/HP iPAQ rx5965 -- COM port setup

Wed May 23, 2007 1:45 pm

Hello

I want to be able to use TomTom TTN 6 on an HP iPAQ rx5965 with GpsGate.

This requires being able to configure TTN 6 to access a free COM port. The TTN user interface does not include a configuration screen for this.

I have looked at:

topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1398

However, although there is a "HKLM/Software/TomTom" registery key, there is no "GPSSettings" subkey. Even if I create the GPSSettings subkey, and create a "COMPort" value, this doesn't help. (I also tried "COMPortNumber" as the value name, which I saw in a different article)


Any help that this would be greatly appreciated... I need to get TomTom working with GpsGate.

Many thanks
Ronny

Try this:

1. Open "Settings" from the Pocket PC start menu.
2. Go to tha "System" Tab
3. Click on GPS
4. Go to the "Hardware" tab
5. Set the "GPS hardware port" to the "Virtual Port" you set as "Output" in GpsGate.

This will feed the Microsoft GPS API with GPS data from GpsGate, and I think TomTom might fetch its data from there.

Regards,
Johan

Thanks Johan... worked a treat

I should have thought of this myself, but because the description in the GPS applet says "GPS hardware port", I didn't think non-hardware would work.

Live and learn

Cheers

Hi,

I have same issue with Nokia e61i - TomTom doesn't see Bluetooth GPS, when GpsGate is launched... I haven't found, where to adjust COM-ports at Nokia's symbian... So if you have decision for that - please help me!
