    First time you start it, command line options are similar to:

    DeviceEmulator.exe PPC_2003_SE\PPC_2003_SE_WWE_ARMv4.bin /video 800x600x16 /sharedfolder D:\SHARED\PPC /u0 com1 /vmname PPCEmu /s myPPC.bin /nosecurityprompt

    after that, to restore the image (like if you turn a PPC on and off etc)

    DeviceEmulator.exe /video 800x600x16 /sharedfolder D:\SHARED\PPC /u0 COM1 /vmname PPCEmu /s myPPC.bin /nosecurityprompt

    where COM1 is the com port and D:\SHARED\PPC is the directory to use as media card.

    myPPC.bin is the 'stored' file that contains the state

    Tomtom Success!!!!! :)

    Well ladies and gents It seems that the pda emulator and the tomtom version 5 software works. Picks up the USB GPS RECEIVER as long as the emulator is configure to COM3 Serial Port 0 (Or what ever com port your usb device is) and then in TOMTOM configure for OTHER NMEA DEVICE and select Serial Com port 1

    Works like a charm

    Thanks to all

    Standard is roughly 96MB of memory usage, about 5% when running pocket PC, upto 100% when using tom tom
