  • How to get BT GPS working on pc (several programs)

    Because I try several programs, to try out which one I prefer, I post a now topic.

    I have the Adapt 300 GPS module:

    I used it many years together with a pocket pc (WM5 and TomTom6) without any problems.
    Now I want to try it on my laptop (after succesfull, transfering it to a carputer).

    TomTom 6 via Pocket PC Emulator (v3.0)/Windows Mobile 5 image:
    What do I have to set where?
    I tried every solution on nearly every tomtom topic on
    There must be a single solution for this.

    I use Vista. My BT GPS module is connected via:
    COM3 - outbound (BT GPS 'SPP Slave')
    COM18 - inbound
    I start the emulator with:
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Device Emulator 2.0 Preview\DeviceEmulator.exe" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 MSFP Emulator Images\pocketpc.nb0" /s "C:\vista.dess" /p /sharedfolder "C:\s" /vmname TT6 /video 640x480x16 /memsize 256 /u1 com1
    Is that correct?

    When I start TomTom I go to preferences for GPS. I select other GPS module and have the option to select:
    Serial port over COM1

    Which one is the right one?

    Any help will be appriciated.

    What other program can I use to just check if my laptop 'likes' my BT GPS module. I dont mean other tomtom variant, but just a small program to check long and latitude by connecting through COM port.
