I always obtain in pocket pc Gps no fix in status bar. Why?, the other thing is that port selection did not work if a let your code line as GPS.Start("COM1",4800); it didn´t work and if i change the port in setting it didn´t work, I change the code line to GPS.Start("COM7",4800); now connect to GPS but I always obtain a message error GPS serialPort timeout, can you help me, Thanks

Because you haven't acquired a GPS position.

First, are you absolutely sure your GPS is connected to port 7 ?
Secondly, are you absolutely sure your GPS is transmitting at 4800 baud?

Hi;

>> I always obtain in pocket pc Gps no fix in status bar. Why?,
Because you haven't acquired a GPS position.
I think I get a GPS position in GPGGA tab I get the following results.
Position =>43,4548N, 0003,8125W
Time to fix=> 20:3:38
Fix quality => GPS
Tracked satellites => 6
Altitude => 78M
etc....

But in the status bar: No fix
And in GPRMC any value.


Port selection problem.

Fix using this code as winform

GPS.Start(frmGpsSettings.SerialPort,frmGpsSettings.BaudRate);

But in GPS.Start I set port name and rate.
