[C550] Com Port

Postby eric61 » Wed Sep 10, 2008 9:23

I'm a problem with COM port configuration using Tom Tom.
Tom tom allows me to select bluetooth port ,for my external gps receiver,
this COM Port : 1-2-3-8- BT vart on com 5.
But , when I try to configure BT on pocket loox ,
when I select one of this port , the reply is:
"the com port could not be created:please check your setting and try again."
what can I do ?
Thanks in advance

Sorry only just seen this. I have a Loox C550 with TomTom 6 & Quo 2 mapping working but I am afraid the solution is not easy.

In brief you need to

1 Obtain a registry editor

2 Edit your Loox registry to turn on the GPS Manager (that FSC have switched off)

3 You then set up your BT GPS receiver on any available hardware com port

4 Then use the GPS Manager to specify the above hardware com port and set up a virtual Com port that TomTom will recognise (I use Com 6)

There are more detailed instructions on how to do the above on the Web

Hope this helps
