Check out the PGPSWorld guide at http://www.pocketgps...?...pic&t=50105 - any joy?

Note specifically the common 'gotcha' with regards to not selecting an Outgoing COM Port...

Can you give more detail about what is, and isn't, happening? In particular, what steps are you trying to get it to work?

This may be a bit late, but I have had very good experience with GPSGATE and GPSPROXY. I prefer gpsproxy (wassan modified version), as it also keeps a tracklog of my trip. As best as I understand it, the program creates a virtual com port and shares the gps nema input to all programs such as tomtom that requests the data. Gpsproxy setup is a bit involved so it may be best to start with gpsgate. There are versions available for your pc and ppc. Also, not it may hog a bit of your resources. I regularly overclock to 260 on my O2 xda neo, while using the gps, without any problems.

Goodluck.
