Hi, I am trying to use a Globalsat SD-501 GPS module on the Toshiba e750.
Now I can't make it work..
In the GPS' specs it says the PDA needs to adopt the Bsquare SDIO Now! tecnique.
Does the e750 have this capability?

Re: SD GPS
I have read some Information about Toshiba PDAs. There is a technique called SD™ IO card. In the technical specifications I found this Info:
1 x SD™ card slot (supports SD™ memory card, SD™ IO card, MultiMedia card)
So when SD™ IO card is the same as Bsquare SDIO Now! tecnique...

I'm sorry to say but this looks like a corrupted ROM issue. The ROM memory stores your operating system and some parts of the firmware. If it becomes corrupted (various reasons) the PDA can't boot up the operating system, resulting in the strage situation you are experiencing. You can't connect it via active sync because it can't be detected as it can't boot anymore. It is very weird that this occured because of running an oficial upgrade. This leads me to suspect that there is something phisically rong with the wi-fi module on the pda's mainboard. You will need to take it to a service center to have it examined first. They will also put a specially made bootable sd card to reinstall the operating system is a way similar with computer windows instalation by booting from a cd. Most logically the wi-fi module has a problem and when trying to acces it by rewriting it's firmware (part of ROM) this resulted in the corruption of some ROM sectors.
I'm sorry that this isn't a do-it-yourself type of fix, but it would be safest to ask a service center to examine your PDA's mainboard.
If u use a WLAN access point,
1. configure your wlan router to allow internet
2. choose "WORK" in the network connections configuration dialogs.
and maybe you will have to configure the proxy server too.
I suspect this is a powersaving issue:
u need to play with the system power saving configuration dialogs, and turn off WLAN card power saving.
maybe you will have to give completely up the power saving - only backlit.
"Certain Pocket PC Models have SD or SDIO slots but are not compatible with the SDIO WLAN Card. These include: Toshiba e350 and e750 – these have SDIO slots but do not have SDIO Now! software from BSQUARE. The e355 is the same as the e350.
as far as I know the e750 supports the SD-Card I/O standard.
You can check your system seettings, go to START - SETTINGS - SYSTEM - SYSTEM INFORMATION - DRIVERS
There should be seen the SD/MMC Host driver, the SD/MMC Memory Driver and CF Card driver. Also if the gps card needs a driver, it should be installed also!
Perhaps a system reset helps you in the end!
It is not easy to say what the problem can be. In my opinion you should contact the producer of this GPS receiver and ask them what the problem is. If this has been tested the producer must be able to help the users.
If no one has any solution for your issue in my opinion you should check the manufacturer’s site. Maybe there you can find out if this unit is compatible with your PDA. Usually you can find it under support or FAQs.
