GPS Com Port Settings

Hi, I am looking for more detailed information about the built-in GPS of the HW6515 mobile communicator. I am a developper and need to access the GPS from within our software. It is very frustrating that an expensive PocketPC like the HW6515 does not come with detailed info about the type/settings/etc. of the GPS. I know it's com-port 7, prob. baud rate 4800 but if I try to use it like that, the communication to the GPS is very slow and hangs after a couple of minutes. I really need more detailed info on the built in GPS-receiver. best regards,

Hello there, I bought a china brand gps with built in garmin mobile xt, how do install road maps. I'm from the philippines by the way.. Thanks for helping me...

Welcome to FixYa!
To update your map, go to Choose your device type. I believe Garmin Mobile XT is under the "Phone Devices".
It will ask you to install the Garmin Communicator Plugin, install it and follow the instructions. You may need to connect your GPS to the computer during this process.
I'm not quite sure if a road map for Philippines is available though.
Thank you for using FixYa. Have a great day. Jas247
Note: CDRKing also released a less expensive GPS tailored for Philippines.

Access to com port settings

You need to reformat and reinstall TOMTOM - You ONLY get the option after initial installation of the software - I don't know if it is possible to delete an individual file to achieve what you are asking - might be worth a note to TOMTOM technical help.

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.
