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.

i dont think so it needs a software to be installed in ur PDA b4 it is lost and then u can track ur pda thru GPS which is built in but if u never installed such a software then u cant do it

now u can only do one thing u can go to ur service provider and request to block the pda for future use and they will black list the IMEI if u have BOX with IMEI or u know it but u have to prove that u are the owner of it and they may or may not help u in finding ur mobile if they know which SIM is being used

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.

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.

E570 with GPS and Navi

Personally I have not GPS on my PDA but there is no reason that it should not work properly. The only thing is that you should pay attention on several things. Check by software producer if the software is compatible to your PDA. Please also be careful which ports use GPS hardware because your PDA has no USB port just serial port. With another words check all this important things before you buy anything.

GPS

I don’t know which GPS you have but as far as I know the GPS manufacturer publish the list with all compatible PDAs. If you want you can try to check it on the manufacturer’s web page.

Problems with e800bt

I don't know much about italian warranty conditions bt in Germay you can ask to change the PDA after it is repaired three times without success! I think it is the best to contact Toshiba Italy directly and tell them your story and ask what to do!
