Hey everyone,
I have a Nomad 900 series handheld with farmworks mobile installed, i am having problems using the internel gps. I occasionally get satviewer to give me coordinates but farmworks will never receive gps data. I have followed these steps...

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.

Farmworks mobile still tells me that i am not receiving GPS data.

Any suggestions?
