    I believe IGO 8 only works with com 9 or below, might be worthwhile changing port no. and see how that goes.

    +1 - if you cant change the port you could always use xport to duplicate the GPS to a port < 9. iGo should see it then.

    In igo8 you can not use a com port past 9 so you have to set it up on a port from 1 to 9 your system is more than likely using a lot of the ports and when you installed bluesoliel in it installed a lot of ports. But that is the problem my suggestion would be either use a gps receiver on a physical usb port one already on your system because the port is dedicated, or you will have to take the harder route if you want to keep using your bluetooth, you will have to uninstall bluesoliel and reinstall so that it can use a single digit ports it is a pain in the behind but that is the only way you can use Igo8. and so that we don't get into this thing where someone is doubting my advice to you start Igo8 go into gps and click manual setup and click detect if you watch it will only try ports 1-9 because those are the only ports that can be used with the software for some reason. hope this helps
