Re: Communication Timeout

Under connection settings switch off the "beam" - apparently there is a conflict between the IR beam port and one of the ports used by the GPS system. Has worked for me.

My older hi-pro box will not work with my serial to USB adapter. It keeps saying it cannot find it on com 1,2,3,4. In the device settings it says the hipro is on port 2 and the serial/USB bridge is on port...

I just set up a serial Hi-Pro box for one of my customers on their new laptop. According to Beltone, the only usb adapter that will work with the Hi-Pro (or at least the only one they have gotten to work) is a Belkin F5U409. I know some usb serial adapters don't use true serial communications if that makes any sense, so there isn't really a baud rate. They kind of just send out the communication in bursts...

In any case, ive only tried with the belkin adapter and that worked fine with no problems. The other point here is that your Hi-Pro and Adapter are on different com ports... This is odd, the hi-pro should be on the serial adpater's com port. Also the software i was using - Noah, with a beltone module for programming hearing aids.. only looked on com ports 1-3. The computer put the serial adapter on com 8 - which would not do. I checked for available com ports and saw that 2 was unused. I set the adapter to 2 and was able to set up the program normally.

I did this on Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit. The procedure for selecting the com port is the same on earlier versions of windows.

First, open device manager, open the list titled "Ports (COM and LPT)". You should see your serial adapter in there. Double click it. In the window that opens click the "ports" tab, and hit the button labeled "Advanced" In the window that opens there will be a drop down list to select a com port. Select the desired com port and hit ok. That should fix it.

S620 Using GPS with Memory Map software

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.

Not able to set up GPS in my HTC p3300 in india

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

Problems with e800BT and com ports

I use an e830 with a Holux GR230 without having any problems. The e830 uses already the latest stack from Toshiba so no need to upgrade. For the e800, hm depends on what kind of BT SD card you use, meanwhile Toshiba sells the BT SD3 card. Anyway, I would recommend to use the latest BT stack from Toshiba for your Toshiba BT SD card.

Has anyone been able to sync an E-100 using the infrared port with a Windows 2000 laptop?

You might find it slow but it very definitely works. Make sure that in the windows system setup com1 is assigned to th IR hardware & not the serial port (9 pin) hardware.
