Built-in GPS: Massive Memory Leak

Sun Mar 16, 2008 10:51 pm

I have two HTC Pocket PCs with Windows Mobile 6 with built in
GPS units. When I poll data from the Multiplexer port that Windows
Mobile offers I have a massive memory leak.

When I say massive I mean it - app. 5 MB are used per minute, and after a couple of minutes all available memory is used.

I am polling the port with serial tools v1.20, the one that comes with NSBasic.

If I used GpsGate and poll the virtual port (usually 5) of Gpsgate I
still have some memory loss, but it is usually just about 400 k per

Does anybody have any idea what is happening here?
