TomTom Navigator 5 + GpsGate

The setup procedure to make TomTom 5 and GpsGate work together are different from TomTom 3 + GpsGate. If you have TomTom 3 please follow this link:

If you have had TomTom 3 installed on the device before, please read this first:

Steps if TomTom 5 is installed before you install GpsGate

1. After installing GpsGate follow the guide here to configure GpsGate:

3. Click on "Change preferences"

4. Go to Preferences 4 of 6 and click on "Show GPS status"

5. Click "Configure"

6. Select "Other Cable NMEA GPS"

7. Select 4800 as baud rate (default)

8. Select "Franson VSerial COMx" as GPS port, where x is the COM port number you set as virtual output port in the GpsGate settings dialog.

9. The "GPS Status" screen will now connect to GpsGate. Click "Done" to return to the Navigator


Steps if GpsGate is installed before you install and setup TomTom 5

GpsGate is assumed to be installed and configured. Here is more info on how to configure GpsGate:
http://franson.com/gpsgate/guide.asp?se ... atform=ppc

When you install TomTom you will get to a point where you are suppost to select a GPS. Follow those steps then:

1. Select "Other Cable NMEA GPS"

2. Select 4800 as baud rate (default)

3. Select "Franson VSerial COMx" as GPS port, where x is the COM port number you set as virtual output port in the GpsGate settings dialog.


Note! Since TomTom is slightly possesive of the screen you might need to connect other applications to your application buttons on the Pocket PC.

Advanced
TomTom stores its input settings here:
HKLM/Software/TomTom/GPSSettings/COMPort

If you change that value to one of GpsGate's virtual ports...
