  • GPS problems - Dev Edition

    Playing with the developer version and my copy of Microsoft Map Point I decided to try and use my bluetooth GPS and see if it would work with Streetdeck. The bluetooth GPS is setup as a bluetooth serial connection on comm 3. Mappoint picks up the GPS just fine and works without trouble. However when i try to set up the comm port in Streetdeck i get an error:
    Failed to set Comm State (error=87 the parameter is incorrect.00000057)
    this could easily be dismissed as a bluetooth incompatibility issue, but i'd like to get more to the question of why this isnt working for future development ideas. Any thoughts?

    I'm having the same issue.

      Exact same problem with my Garmin GPS10 Bluetooth GPS and DLink BT-120 Bluetooth dongle.

      Works with Mappoint and everything else. Just not SD.

        Do you know the parameters it is suppose to work at? i.e. Baudrate, byte size, stopbits, flow control? Developer (I am Chuck)
