Kathy, Thank you.
Before I wrote to the discussion board I tried doing as your directions above a lot of times, as well as unplugging all the cables off of the Yuma and restarting it then plugging the cables back in still the Yuma would not recognize the External GPS on Comm1.
I took the GPS antenna and hooked it up to our personal Yuma and it picked up the signal in Farm Works Mobile just fine so I knew the antenna Baud rate and Comm Port were correct I was trying to use for the customers Yuma.

I kept thinking there was a setting or something I needed to turn off so the GPS's were not competing

The last thing I tried worked. I decided to leave the 9 pin GPS & cable plugged into the RS232 port and power off the computer all the way, then start it up from scratch.
The Mobile program recognized the External GPS on Comm1. The Yuma now allows me to switch back and forth between comm1 for external GPS usage, and Comm2 to use the built in GPS.

Thank you for all your help
Lorra
