    Bluetooth GPS Receiver

    hy guys,

    i'm from germany and i love centrafuse

    I have bought a bluetooh gps receiver, but it won't work!!

    I choose the virtual serial port in centrafuse, but the integrated destinator
    say always Satellites: 0 and don't work.

    The GPS Receiver found satellites, that can i see at a green light.

    Please help me and sorry for my bad english

    Moved from the CF FAQs to the main CF forum.

    Please pay attention to what subforum you're in before posting requests for help.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I use a Bluetooth gps receiver
    What software are you using to connect to your Bluetooth gps receiver?
    I’m still trying to connect as well. I managed in 1.6 but now ive got to do it all over again in 1.7 with it in the car this time to.

    But any ways
    You will have to connect to gps receiver with this software before loading up CF
    Check the com port its connected on and then load up CF, in the find gps settings click on find and it should cycle through the ports listed (in CF 1.6) also I noticed that the port numbers available use to change all the time so I dunno whats the go with that but in 1.7 im guessing you just click on the port number your gps is connected on
    Let the world roll along... Ill catch up later.
