Problem of opening GPS

Problem of opening GPS with Windows CE devices

The connection to GPS is defined through the application settings (settings.ini) through the com= parameter assignment.
By default we set it to autodetect mode (Sygic 2D: com=autodetect or Sygic 3D: m_strDefCom=autodetect ).
However, the auto detection might fail on some devices.
If you know exactly, to which port GPS connects, it is best if the setting is overwritten with fixed values.
Examples:

  • Sygic 2D: com=COM1:,9600
  • Sygic 3D: m_strDefCom=COM1:,9600

If you don't know it, you should find the values in your device's specification, or you should contact the device manufacturer.

Problem of opening GPS with Windows 8 devices

In contrary to Windows CE devices, which are connecting to GPS through a COM port, in Android and Windows8 the GPS is connected through services.
Please make sure the application settings (settings.ini) are correctly set as folows:

  • Windows 8 with Sygic 2D
    com=COM1:,9600,2
    The first 2 parameters are ignored. It is the 3rd parameter which matters.
  • Windows 8 with Sygic 3D
    m_strDefCom=COM1:,9600,2
    The first 2 parameters are ignored. It is the 3rd parameter which matters.
