Re: gps not connecting

About this issue I agree with Subx. Maybe you just twisted a little the device in some way or another, that made the internal signal antnna broken in the three weldment interface pins.
As Subs mentioned, having good hand and patience, do as I did, fix it.

Re: gps not connecting

Can be two things,

You dripped your device and the wire from the antenna has broken, or you have an old amplifier chip which has burned out. It a known issue.

In either case, send it back if its under warranty. If not, you can do it yourself is you have a good steady hand and can solder well.

Hi, I have motorokr e6 and i am trying to connect it to my laptop win 7 pro 32 bit through bluetooth...please help me how to do so

On your phone and laptop bluetooth, then ensure that both bluetooth are visible under bluetooth settings.
If you Motorola phone have PC Suite try install it for a perfect interaction, you should as well pair the PC and phone together as family.
Best regards.

T Mobile G1 GPS Problems

G1 Gps Problem Fix - I recently had the same issues with the gps giving me the location of cell towers instead of actual location. After looking around the forums, i found the fix and it worked.
Clear you maps cache by going into your application data.
Settings : Applications : Manage Applications : Maps : then push "clear data"
Make sure both your wireless and gps are turned ON
Turn off Phone
Take it outside somewhere that is clear of obstructions (like a large parking lot, or field)
Turn on phone
Once on, press maps
Let it sit in one spot for about 5-10 min, then press my location.
It should find you in just a few seconds. Mine took about 30 seconds.
This should fix most problems you are having.

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.

Sim Card Invalid

It sounds like the device is still locked to the original wireless carrier. What you need to do is have the device unlocked (if it is a GSM BlackBerry) so that it will work with other carriers. There are several vendors that provide cell phone unlocking services. I recommend checking out

My comp. is not reading my phone!!!

Uninstall and then Reinstall Mobile Phone Tools. Sometimes the drivers get corrupted.

Then try connecting using the USB from a different port.

If this doesn't work, try using the Bluetooth connection.

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.
