I got a Dopod 810 two years ago. Only recently I tried to load a GPS software. The software was loaded properly by professional. However, the program failed to run as it could not detect the device. I was told that my GPS receiver on my phone was faulty. I recalled when I bought the PDA, I was told that the GPS receiver is dormant. To use it I need to refresh the ROM. It is true that I need to do so before I can use my GPS program? If so where can I get help to refresh the ROM? Thank you very much. CL

Most GPS receivers come with all required software and full instructions for installation and use. Just make sure it works with Windows Mobile 5.0 and you should be set. If you happen to choose a GPS receiver that lacks bundled software, my personal preference is Mapopolis, which is free software and maps are sold by county or by region with free trials available before you buy.
Check out the Terracrosser software, this uses Google maps but allows you to use downloaded maps. Terracrosser works on my S620 although I haven't been able to get my BT GPS unit to function properly with any mapping software. I have tried setting it to COM 6 as previously suggested.
software you need to install software
let it install before connecting phone to comp
then after finish the install then connect the phone to usb cable
you might if this didnt work the first time have to uninstall all the software and try a fresh copy of the software in comp to sync everything with desktop manager
