Question about Toshiba e800 Pocket PC
My PDA have problems with com ports.(I think) I use my PDA with one GPS but they are software who don't work because don't find com ports. They are peopple who said it is because Toshiba bluetooh don't use the WidComm Bluetooth stack and it is incompatible with this. Is it true? How can I use evry com ports with another device (gps, etc)..

I have the same problem with the e830 and the Leadtek 9537 BT GPS receiver. The version of my Toshiba BT Stack is 5.01. Using the e830 factory settings, the BT device is not found at all. I noticed that the HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Bluetooth/l2cap/ScanModeControl value was set to 1, so I changed it to 3, which is the MS default (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wcecomm5/html/wce50conStackRegistrySettings.asp). After making this change, the device is now detected and the Serial Port service is found (COM6), however, navigation programs can't reliably connect to the serial port. I've been told that the new MS BT Stack (PPC 2003) is extremely buggy, so I also wonder if there was a way to install the Widcomm stack on the e830. I already contacted the guys who take care of BT support at Toshiba but so far haven't got an answer. So, if somebody from Toshiba is reading this forum, please shed some light on this issue. The e830 is a great product, but I would definitely return it to the vendor if I can't solve the BT connectivity problems.

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.
