Hi Folks,

Is there a newer GPS driver for TTM5 - other than v1.20 that i've got installed?

I've currently only got two types of GPS devices available in 'Specify your GPS hardware' - 'TomTom Wireless GPS' & 'Other Bluetooth GPS' - the 'TomTom wireless GPS' has a key on it and '0000' - isnt this meant to be on the device that I've got paired? the 'Other Bluetooth GPS'?

I'm trying to figure out whether my Qstarz BT-Q880 GPS device is working correctly - it seems to stay on 'No valid GPS signal!' no matter where I go.. the grey bars go up and down but never acheive a lock..

Is there a program that I can run on my mobile to check that my GPS is working correctly?

Can anyone shine a light onto what I'm doing wrong

I've the following:

Nokia 6630 - firmware - V3.45.113 - 04-01-05 RM-1
Qstarz BT-Q880 - GPS

TomTom Mobile 5:
App version 5.000(419)
GPS driver v1.20
GB Map v562

Did you go through the Discovery and Pairing process with your GPS on your phone? You have to do this before the phone will recognize your Bluetooth device.

I did that, I then tried some programs on a pocket pc it told me that the GPS was picking up satellites, but not fixing on to them.

So I switched everything off and tried it later on that evening and it worked first time - Very strange, its being working ever since... fingers crossed it stays that way..
