    Find your GPS port, speed, and protocol

    GPSScan_debug.exe is a small tool from the Miopocket Tronik utilities. It does seem to run standalone(atleast on a wince gps) and did find the port, baud rate, and protocol of my GPS. So if you need a "tool" to find your gps port, you might want to give GPSScan_debug.exe a try.

    If GPSScan_Debug doesn't work for you, you might want to try WinCE Device Information.rar. It can provide GPS port , baudrate, available memory, screen resolution, and wince version.

    For TMC port;

    Yeah, you need some patience with this app. Takes a minute or two for the data to be revealed.

    Re: Find your GPS port, speed, and protocol

    This must be a noob question, but pardon me. Is it possible or a GPS unit to have more than one port and baud rate where NMEA data can be obtained? For example, the GPSScan_debug tool told me that my port is com 1 and baud rate is 9600 and indeed when I set that in my ndrive it picks up the signal but very very weakly. I was going through the contents of my GPS flash rom and I saw that the OEM had actually specific com port 4 with baud rate 4800. I got very confused. So is it possible for a device to provide GPS data from more than one port/baud rate combo?

    Not likely that there is more than one port dedicated to collecting gps data, but what have you got to loose in trying the port the manufacturer recommended? Actually, is not unusual for a gps manufacturer to make similar devices with different port configurations. An example would be the Insignia NS-NAV01 and the Insignia NS-NAV01c. They look identical, but the NAV01c, which was made for distribution in Canada, has a different port configuration than the NAV01 which was made for distribution in the US.

    No, you run it from your gps device. If you have a sd card, copy it to the sd card and CECMD, Explorer or some such file manager to start it.

    It is a file manager utility, but I guess if you can't figure out how to run gpsscan_debug, you won't be able to figure out how to run cecmd either. I don't even know what kind of GPS you have, so I can't tell you how to do it.
