posted in another thread by paludour
For those who own a Mio A201, I've written, for my own use, a little application largery inspired from GPSRedirect... It allows to redirect GPS data (default: COM2) to the Bluetooth port (default: COM7). Microsoft .Net Compact Framework 2 must be installed. It can be freely downloaded and used, at your own risk, I don't make any support.I've tested it with SiRFDemo on my PC and it works!

Latest version of GPS2blue
Here is V. 1.5:
* Compatibility with Windows Mobile 2003 (already present in 2nd 1.4 version).
* "What is my IP" function improved for GPRS (already present in 3rd 1.4 version).
* Function to decipher geocaching hint.
Here is V. 1.4:
* Incoming commands and resets work with GID.
V. 1.3 beta:
* Functions du reset SiRF chipset.
* Option to correct longitude/latitude returned by bugged GID.
* Redirection to TCP/IP, to redirect to PC/laptop without bluetooth... (beta).
More details here.
Here is V. 1.2:
* When GID is used, red/green LED added (and little more...).
Here is V. 1.1:
* Option to disable automatic turn off (powersaving) when redirecting/logging.
* Adjust PDA clock to GPS time.
* Bug fixed: corrupt log file if logging not stopped before exiting.
* Browse for a Tomtom map file (.pna) instead of GPS2Blue.bmp (no need to copy manually GPS2Blue.bmp anymore).
* True installation files (.cab or .exe for ActiveSync), no more .zip file (can they be mirrored on the first thread?).
Here is V. 1.0 :
* On the fly log file compression.
Here is V. 0.9 :
* Tool to add POIs to Tomtom 5.x at specified coordinates.
V. 0.8 (no public release of V. 0.7) :
* Much better GID compatibility (runs well together with Tomtom, can record car trips...).
* Display of the number of processed bytes.
* Possibility to log without Bluetooth (ie: can turn off redirection).
* Possibility to discard all but GGA, GLL, RMC et VTG sentences in NMEA logging (smaller log files).
V0.6
* Compatibility with GID (WM5 server) (I hope...).
* Possibility to log the raw data redirected to bluetooth.
V0.5
* 9600 and 19200 bauds added. (for N560)
V0.4
* Compatibility with landscape mode.
* Small cosmetic changes.

Download - (you will also need MS .NET Compact Framework 2.0)

Quickstart on A201 and A701:
1. Create new Bluetooth incoming port on the Mio (COM7 on A201 and COM8 on A701)
2. Launched GPS2blue with
- A201 : GPS:COM2 Speed: 4800 and BT:COM7
- A701 : GPS:COM2 Speed: 57600 and BT:COM8
3. GPS2blue returns : BT not connected, waiting
4. Discovered and paired the A201/A701 from my PC (COM 6)
5. Launched VisualGPS and the data started coming through.

Well its a long time since anyone was active in this forum but just maybe someone is listening . . .

Hardware mobile phone (with GPS) HTC HD2 running WM6.5; PC = HP ENVY DV6 running Windows 7 SP1
1. Paired the PC and mobile
Mobile shows Bluetooth networking and Serial Port (which seems to be COM1 as an incoming port)
PC shows
Device Manager Intel Wireless Bluetooth 4 + HIg Speed Adapter
Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator
Other Devices The phone with device functions
Bluetooth generic telephony
Standard Modem over bluetooth link
Standard serial Over bluetooth link (COM3)
2. Install and run GPS2Blue.
GPS is set to COM4 4800. ('cos it works with another GPS program ozplorer which also tells me that COM1 and COM2 are bluetooth serial ports)
BT is ticked and set to COM3

GPS2Blue tells me the GID Port is COM4 (A conflict?)
I click the 'On' box and get IO exception. Bluetooth off? Waiting for Bluetooth to be enabled. It seems however, that COM2 (in place of COM3) connects OK.

Eventually I get to a GPS2Blue screen that asks me to select a device. I select the PC and then it tells me there are no bluetooth serial ports on that device. Yet when I click the mobile phone bluetooth icon (on the PC) and select properties->Services it tells me the Bluetooth serial port is COM3.

I am also concerned that GOS2Blue is not talking to the mobile phone GPS because there are no values next to word Bytes nor next to Lat and Long (despite the fact that another GPS app is running and has a fix.

Anyone any idea what I need to do to get this to work?

bigbuffalo:

If Window does not create 'Microsoft Windows Mobile Remote Adapter' for some reasons, you may try to localhost IP address of 127.0.0.1

I met the same situation before. I found out the localhost receive the data from Active Sync with the help of some free TCP/IP monitor utility program. With the known IP address, you can use other free TCP/serial program instead of HW virtual serial port program which limits to create only one com port. Also, the HW virtual serial port program listen to other IP address with the same port number, and get error data if IP address is set 0.0.0.0. This can be avoid with the known IP address.

If you are unluck that the localhost IP address is assigned with other value, you can try to use IP address resolve program to find it out.

Dear paludour

Thanks for your information. That solved my first problem.

I just advanced one more step to solve the "waiting for bluetooth to be enabled" error by using port splitter to split COM1: port to an unsed COM3: port and set the GPS2blue to open the COM3: port. The byte# is increasing now.

If my observation is correct, you display the above error message when GPS2blue can not open the GPS comm port, no matter the comm port is not ready or is already busy (opened by other program). The latter is my case. Hence, I would suggest the error message is quite misleading. The situation may be improved if you implement the way to read GPS comm port same as port splitter.

I have the last problem to solve in order to use GPS2blue. That is I can not see the 'Microsoft Windows Mobile Remote Adapter' with "IPCONFIG /ALL" DOS command to get the IPv4 address. I can see my GPS machine with name "Window CE USB Sync" on device manager list. I had also tried u918244's solution posted oon Aug 3, 2007 to add a lookback-adaptor, but there is no help.

I know this is Activesync problem or setting problem on PC. Is there anyone out there has any suggestion, solution, or any other software to use instead of Activesync.

You can try to edit the XML file as follows:

<sGPSPort>COM1:</sGPSPort>
<iBaudRate>4800</iBaudRate>

Dear paludour

I just figure out the default GPS port can be set to COM1 by editing the GPS2BlueA201.xml file. However, I got another problem.
When I press "ON" button without checking "TCP/IP" and "BT", I get the message that "waiting for bluetooth to be enabled" and the byte counter does not increase. There is also no message "GPS Port opened. Processing data...". This indicates GPS2blue does not open the COM1 port and can not read the GPS data from it.
I had tried the "AplSirf" and "SirfTech' program which come with Miopocket to open the COM1: port, both programs can open it and read the GPS data. This demonstrates my GPS machine is OK and the COM1: port is the correct one.
May I have your help to figure out what is wrong ?

Hi, so I m not sure if I m posting on the right board but I ll give it a shot.
So I have wm6.1 prof on the opera x1 and I tried using the gps2 blue.
When I m trying to configure the Bluetooth settings, I can't really access the com ports option.
So I go:
start
Settings
Connections
Bluetooth
Mode and I set it on the on mode and visible,
Then com ports ands says that after pairing with a device etc etc
On the gps2blue I set com4 gps
Speed 4800 bt checked com1
And says.
Io exception. Bluetooth off?
Waiting for bluetooth to be enabled...
I tried many other combinations but still nth. And I paired the device and still no port available on the Bluetooth settings.
I would appreciate some guidance.

Dear paludour

I tried to run GPS2blue v2.0 on my china made GPS machine running Win CE6.0, but I got a strange problem.
When I ran it, the line for selecting GPS comm port and the baud rate was not there so that I can not set the GPS comm port to match my machine. The rest of the window screen was normal. If I maximize the window screen, the baud rate appeared there to change, but GPS comm port selection was still missing.
I had installed Miopocket 4.0 and tried the GPS2blue v1.9 that comes with it, but the same thing happened. The GPSscan utility that comes with Miopocket 4.0 reported that GPS was found at COM1 so that my GPS should be OK.
May I ask your help to fix this problem, or an alternative way to change the default GPS comm port manually - for example, to add the comm port selection in the drop down menu, or with an INI file.

Thanks a lot in advance.

HI, a question please:

Can I use GPS2Blue on my HTC tilt to send GPS info to my Samsung Galaxy, via bluetooth?

I cannot figure out what to do! I can get GPS2Blue to log the GPS data, but anything after that regarding bluetooth let alone the other device is totally confusing me.

Thanks.

GPS2BLue seems to be what I am looking for, to take the Windows GPS and make it available on a TCPIP port, however it does not work on my phone. When running it I get "GPS2Blue doesn't work on SmartPhone or Windows Mobile 6 Standard!". It is a Samsung SGH-i617 (BlackJack II) running Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard, SmartPhone. Is there a version available for my phone?
ben38 Posted - 14 juin 2010 : 22:57:32
Thanks for the explanations about the options. And yes it is not concerning my problem.

I have a phone HTC Touch 3G. Other GPS software works fine when exiting (GoogleMap, Tomtom, Oziexplorer). The problem concerns only GPS2blue. But this is not a big issue I just have to remind me to reboot after use.

(in fact I am using the soft while doing kitesurf to analyse my speed with the NMEA doppler data. with your last little modifications, I just push one button and the GPS starts recording, great with gloves or around sand and water.)

Hi,
I am wondering of something when using the soft. What happen with the GPS when the soft is closed (by clicking "exit" or killing the process) ? I am not sure that the port is closed and the GPS might be still running. I have to test more, but I think that after using the soft my battery is going low very fast (maybe because GPS still running ?) and also when I launch the soft again, the fix is anormally too quick.
Maybe I don't know how to use the options "power settings" properly ?
What is the option "Disable powersaving" ? I don't manage to make it "ticked" and nothing happen when I click on it. There is also the option "reset ports on wake up" ... but I don't know if it can solve my problem.

Currently, after using the soft, I reset my phone.



Hello,

On my PDA (Mio A201), I've just verified that the port is well closed and I've no battery problem... The "Disable powersaving" option is active only when GPS2Blue is running. It avoids the PDA to enter sleep mode. The "Reset ports on wake up" option closes and reopens port when the PDA is powered on (and GPS2Blue is still running). These 2 options are not related with your problem... Strange...

Wahou perfect ! I missed the new option on my previous test. It is exactly what I asked for and it is working perfectly. Thanks a lot Paludor.

I just test the 2.0 version. The directory is well restored. But for the automatic logging it will be great that it can be automatically launched with \autorun when the option was ticked before and even if no redirection is used.



Hello, it works like that if you check "File > Log settings > Automatic logging with On / Off".
