BT ActiveSync and GPS at once

Posted by , Aug 22 2005, 02:45 PM in Smartphone Experience

Some of you may have noticed that when you do a BT ActiveSync and then try to connect to your GPS device that you get an error. Well the following is a fix for this thanks to ffaridi1 and biek over at HowardForums.

NOTE: You must have the Asian ROM's 3.45 or 3.46 installed on your phone.

1st: Delete all parings to all devices.

2nd: With a registry editor go to HKLU\Control Pannel\Bluetooth. Make sure the values in IsBthVCOMactive and IsBthCOMSetup are set to "0"

3rd: Now repair your devices, including your computer and your BT GPS device. Then go to Start, Settings, Bluetooth, Menu, COM ports and assign COM ports to your GPS device and your PC. Make sure they are different.

I would leave the one you have for the PC as it is and just assing COM 0 to your GPS device.

You should now be be able to BT ActiveSync and connect your GPS device via your favorite Mapping Software on your Smartphone.

The above set up is for the MPx 220 but should work the same on the Audiovox SMT 5600, I believe there is a menu in the Start Menu that says COM Ports, you would set your COM ports from there. Also, I am not sure if the same registry entries are in the SMT 5600. If you have any questions please ask them in the forums, the link is in the begianing of this post.
