I have a GPS app in vb.net 2005 and I am trying to "guess" the gps port by Setting Enabled = true and then reading 10 lines and looking for a $ in the output.
On my HTC P3600 the GPS Port is actually 9, but when it gets to trying com 3 it locks up and requires a reboot. Through debugging I can clearly see that it locks up on opening the port.
When I try the noEvents sample app I get the same thing - port 3 is in the list and if I try and open it the phone freezes.
I could let the user choose but I think it is nicer to do it automatically.
I didn't get this problem when I used the native SerialPort component.
Thanks for your help
