    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;

    Thanks a bunch... this one works for me.
    Being trying to find out this info for the longest time.

    In case anyone is interested, the Holux GPSmile 61 uses com 1 and 38400 baud rate.

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

    It's hard to say how to run a file on your particular gps, because they're all different , and different techniques work on different devices. One of the easy ways to get to the wince desktop is to create a text file at the root of your sd card called explorer.atr. In this file you want to type one word "explorer", without the quotes, on the first line, and then save it to the root of your sd card. Now put the sd card in your device and restart it. If your lucky, this process will bring up the wince desktop, and you can start "My Device" to browse to gpsscan_debug.exe and start it. Once you start the file, it could take as long as 5 minutes for it to access your ports and return the information. If that doesn't work, you try something else.

    [QUOTE=aussiepaul;140004]Ok the program told me port 1 and baud 4800
    set it all as such still no satelite signals[/QUOTE

    The GPS will take a lot longer to find a satellite the first time, because it does no know where on the earth it is located, so it has no idea idea where to look for a satellite signal. Take your gps outside where it has a clear shot at the open sky and leave it for an hour. Then check to see if it has acquired a lock.

    [gps]
    baud="4800"
    port="1"

    This is how the info should appear in your sys.txt.

    It would seem that you are trying to run gpsscan_debug.exe on your PC. That won't work. You need to copy the gpsscan_debug.exe to your sd card and execute it with wince. To do that you will have to use cecmd, explorer, or have a gps menuing system that allows you to modify the navigation path. Since wince is slow, it will take a while to go through all combinations of ports and baudrates, so be patient, it will take a few minutes for the port and baudrate information to be displayed on the screen

    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.
