GPSout and HP Rx5915 Travel Companion


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Has anyone gotten FS9 to connect to PocketFMS through GPSOut on an HP Rx5915 Travel Companion with the built in GPS receiver?

I've got the setup working fine with my HP Hx4700, but I can't get any "signal" into the 5915.

My settings are:

[GPSout]

Sentences=RMC,PGRMZ,GGA,GSV,GSA,GLL

Interval=1000

Port=\\.\WCEUSBSH001 ; the dot is very important

Speed=19200

connected using the following procedure:

A. Shut off USB access to ActiveSync. You may want to unconnect the cable and do a soft reset of your iPAQ after doing this.

1. Make sure the USB cable is unconnected

2. Start PocketFMS on the PPC

3. connect the USB cable

4. Enable the GPS in PFMS on the PPC

5. Move to the map page

6. Start MSFS

7. Make sure to check back that the GPS is still enabled, enable it again if it is not.

8. That should be it. I definately suggest reading the other thread on http://www.pocketFMS.com on this subject.

I've made sure ActiveSync is killed on both the PC and the iPAQ. I've tested it with the Hx4700 and it works fine; so I know there is something I am missing about getting it to work with the 5915 with WM5. I've tried various com ports and no go.

I set the internal GPS to connect through the program port (None). The screen says there is no explicit way to turn off the GPS, and that it apparently tries to turn on when something tries to connect to its com port, but, since I've set it to "None", I'm hoping that's not interfering.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!
