if you're running windows mobile 6, then you need to update to the newer windows mobile 6.1. this upgrades your gps radio on your system and allows you to use gps. you can find the free upgrade at htc.com. beware, however, that flashing this new rom wipes out your phone. so back everything up with activesync before you upgrade. then go to waze.com and install (for free) their great gps program, then start driving!
supposedly the touch comes with a built in gps receiver just like the tytn2, however it needs to be activated as the australian version has it switched off (probably for marketing reasons). it is tricky to turn it on but it can be done, check out the xda developers forum for threads on how to do this. I think you need to install a new radio rom and new firmware, good luck!!
Garmin will work with ANY windows mobile device with built in GPS and or a bluetooth receiver. But you have to have the correct software there are 2 versions both will install but only one will work with your model phone for older model phones use version 4.10 or lower for newer model phones use version 5.0 or higher.
Let windows manage your GPS ports do not try to set it manually. If you have a GPS fix option...go out side where you can get a satellite fix easily...launch your GPS fix program...thenlaunch Garmin. It should connect and you will have to do this only once. I know from experience and I've use this on a T-Mobile Dash with a bluetooh adapter with no issues. I'd try a different receiver preferably any PharosGPS receiver.
