I bought my phone BenQ p50 4 days ago and I am not able to connect to my GPS device. I can pair the devices and I can define an incoming port on COM6 successfully. After that a cannot connect to the GPS on any com port. The same device works on Qtek 2020i and Sony Ericsson P900. On Qtek for example I click on connect menu on my Bluetooth tab and the blue light on my GPS device start flashing. There is no connect or similar option on BenQ p50s Bluetooth settings screen. Can anyone help me resolve this problem.

I am having the exact same problem. I'm using a DeLorme Earthmate with the Bluetooth PowerPack. I have tried it as both an Incoming and Outgoing port device, on COM6. But there is no connect option like there was on my iPaq 2215, nor does either of my mapping software (MS Pocket Streets 2006 and DeLorme Street Atlas Handheld 2006) even show COM6 is the list of "serial" ports present on the machine!! Unfortunately both Microsoft and DeLorme tech support have been less than helpful on the issue - basically their story is "it's a problem with your Pocket PC vendor, not us!". I'm starting to get frustrated here...

Interesting. I was able to get my GPS to work with Mapopolis (http://www.mapopolis.com/). This program was able to recognize the outgoing COM6 port that I defined in the bluetooth manager.

I received my P50 from Expansy yesterday. I can pair my gps receiver with P50, whcih assigns COM6 as incoming Com port. However, my Destinator PN - my sat nav system does not support COM6. Please can I have some guidance in this regard.

I have a p50 and a BT338 bluetooth gps. After pairing the device, and setting the outgoing port, i can connect to it from various gps apps (Navigon, TomTom, OziExplorer, GPSTuner and GPSGate). I would suggest you find the app called VisualGPS CE, a free app that will let you see incoming gps data on whatever port you have it connected to (http://www.visualgps.net/VisualGPSce/). If your gps software can not use com6 for data then you will probably need to look at using virtual ports with a product like GPSGate (http://www.franson.com) pjo

Tomtom 5.1 is unable to use virtual port setup during paring when connection is made via Bluetooth. There is a software I downloaded that helped me to solve this, but I forgot where I got it (this was months ago). You need software that when it pairs the devices sets up a com port like a widcomm driver for WM 2003. God start to look for this is: http://www.xda-developers.com/ Good luck

ummm... i am using tomtom with a virtual port no problem, no hack. You probably need to "remove" a builtin virtual port on the P50, just like I did. Go to www.franson.com and look in the forum for how to remove virtual ports - it is a program that runs on the P50 and disables the built-in virtual ports on the P50. I know use Comm9 for TomTom, OziExplorer, GPSTuner, etc. pjo
