Configure a Bluetooth GPS Receivers with Windows Mobile 5 and 6 Devices

This article discusses the process of connecting OnTime to a Bluetooth GPS receiver. The below step-by-step directions should help to simplify the task for Windows Mobile users:

For regular Windows Mobile 5 or 6 touch screen devices:

  1. Turn on your Bluetooth GPS receiver and open the Bluetooth Manager.
  2. Tap on Start > Settings > Connections tab > Bluetooth Icon.
  3. Ensure that the Turn on Bluetooth box is checked.
  4. Tap on Devices tab and select New Partnership... After a few seconds, the BT GPS Device ID will show on the Select a Bluetooth Device page.
  5. Tap once on the BT GPS Device ID and select Next.
  6. Enter the Bluetooth device’s passkey (consult your user manual for this key) and select Next.
  7. Check the Serial Port checkbox.
  8. Select Finish.
  9. Tap on the COM Ports tab and select New Outgoing Port.
  10. Tap once on the BT GPS Device ID/Name and select Next.
  11. Select a COM Port for this outgoing connection.
  12. UNCHECK the Secure Connection checkbox.
  13. Select Finish.
  14. Launch OnTime Mobile for Windows Mobile and start the GPS service.

Important Note: Some models may not have COM 6 listed. In such cases, we recommend that you select the highest COM Port number first. If the higher number does not work, delete the outgoing COM Port and use the second highest available COM Port from the list and re-test.
