Janine,

Close FW Mobile. Reset the Nomad. The Internal GPS - Sat Viewer cannot be open. After the reset make sure the first screen states GPS - Off. Then open Fw Mobile again. Go to the File menu and select GPS settings. Make sure you have selected Com 2-Baud Rate 9600. Databit 8 - Parity - None and Stop bits - 1. Tap OK If still have troulbe here are some trouble shooting tips that may help:

We have had a few calls on people not being able to get GPS into the newer Nomads running Windows Mobile 6.1.

There are a couple things that I have found that need to be Changed.
1) Make sure that the Sat Viewer program is NOT connected to GPS.
2) Perform a reset on the unit to close all programs.
3) Go to Start > Settings> System > GPS
a. Programs Tab: Set the Program Com Port to COM 2 (you may have to go into the Hardware Tab first and change that, sometimes the hardware port is set to 2 also).
b. Hardware Tab: Set the Hardware Tab to COM 3 with the Baud Rate at 9600
c. Access Tab: Make sure there is a Check mark next to "Manage GPS Automatically"
d. A-GPS Tab: (This is only an option in the New Nomads). Remove the Check Mark from " Enable Assisted GPS".
e. Select OK, you will be prompted to Reset.
4) Open Mobile and change the GPS settings to COM 2 Baud Rate 9600.


Hope this helps!

Thanks,

Kathy Cline,
