Re: Mobile XT not excepting my GPS Receiver

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 Pharos GPS receiver.

Garmin Mobile XT will not work with a Treo, even though the company I bought mine from said it would. The Garmin package even shows a Treo on it.

Where do I find the GPS application on the omnia i8000? I've done the settings for it but can't find an icon to start it.

The GPS settings in an Omnia i8000 only refer to the GPS device (receiver), not any application. There are no GPS applications preloaded (except for the camera, which can store the GPS location of a picture when you take one, if you have set it up to do so).

If you need GPS navigation software, then you will need to purchase that seperateley. I can recommend CoPilot, which I find somewhat wasier to use than TomTom, and is also a lot cheaper (in the UK). You can find them at:

(If you are not located in the US, there are country specific web sites linked from a drop down list on the top right of the page in the above link).

hi thanks for using fixya!

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.

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!

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.

Ipaq with GPS reciver

I think you should contact the company that makes the GPS and ask them if their software (drivers) will work with the Pocket PC you have and the operating system it runs.
