Hope some one can help ive been looking for months!!!!!!
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You do not have to turn anything on. Use Google maps (download from www.m.google.com/maps) or any other maps that you like and set it up to use built-in GPS device. When you start using these maps, they will on their own stat the GPS and start using it. You will get an indication by a dish being displayed on the screen. This can be used by the mobile alone, you cant use it on your computer like other bluetooth GPS'.
With this phone you get only one city's map. rest you have to buy.
However, you can use google maps from www.google.com/maps. Plenty of features like Latitude and Layers. Download from google site, free.
tomtom is coming out with software soon to be able to use your g1 as a gps device. theres apps on the market that let you view traffic updates just look up gps on the apps market and find one there. i believe google maps does traffic updates. you should get the docking station for your car it replaces expensive gps devices.
Yeah, google maps does not navigate, it only shows your location, and shows directions, but I think it should follow you with the gps, I can't check at the moment as my gps is broken...
But I do know for sure that it will not tell you, with voice and text, when to turn and how much of a distance you have to make that turn, etc. Navigation software is a must if you are planning to use it while driving..Google Maps is enough if you ask me though, but only if you have an unlimited data plan...otherwise get navigation software, which has the maps stored as data straight on your phone.
HTC tytn II, att tilt,Kaiser ( all the same products) have internal GPS chip installed just near the camera , so you need not buy anything else. Just get google maps app, a internet connection and try to find your self by using locate me feature on google map, the GPS chip will point you on map with very much accuracy.
Hye! here's how you can take care of this issue: Dowload google maps from the web (for windows mobile) & install it on your diamond. In order to use GPS on this phone, your internet/gprs connection must be functional; without netwrok connectivity you cant use GPS on this device as it does not have the map interface on its chip (& cant be loaded later too). It just has a light GPS transceiver which in presence of a mapping software (such as google maps) can show your position on the globe & in some countires can also navigate you. After installing google maps, make sure your internet connectivity is on and then work with google maps 'USE GPS' & 'My location' or 'Navigate' functions ... enjoy!
In the Comm Manager, select Settings, then Bluetooth. Again select bluetooth and then scroll down to your GPS receiver assuming you're paired correctly. Click Menu and then COM ports. Now click Menu and select New Outgoing Port. Pick COM6 assuming you have nothing else on this as your outgoing port. Now go back to your map program. In the GPS settings, select COM6 as your GPS and it should now give your position. I use google maps and have no bother.
It sounds like your not able to access the internet on the device , try going to a normal webpage and then you can check if it loads it most probably wont. if that is the case you will need to contact your network to get the settings. ( Most networks will brand the device with there own name it can be helpful to find what this is before calling .) once you have done this then you will be able to download the quick gps settings . The special GPRS mentioned above is only the networks name for there GPRS service.
After this is done you may notice that you still arent able to use your GPS to find your location that is because you need to select the port that the GPS device is on
1.Tap start > settings
2. Tap the system tab
3. Select the GPS option
4. In the drop-down box that is entitled GPS program port select COM4
5. Tap Hardware tab , Gps hardware port should be ( None ) and baud rate 4800
6. Tap access tab and then select manage GPS automatically tickbox
7. Now click ok then x
You will now need to setup MAPKing to use COM port 4 as the GPS device this will now allow you to use your GPS properly
