Well still testing and it still works on Google Maps, Windows Live Search and CamerAware...all using com4.

Still can't get mapopolis to work and I've tried all of the options for Baud. Tinkers some more.
Having troubles connecting via Effica GPS Tools as well. Tinkers some more.

I tried this on my Q9h and as soon as I reset the phone, I am no longer able to make a data connection.

I get the error message "The remote party has ended this connection"...

Once I reset the phone, the I am able to make a connection again. Anyone else have this issue?

that error did pop up on my Blackjack but I didnt think it was related. My data connection ended...but started right back up again. Only happened once during a restart.

I have tried it 4 times so far... As soon as I restart it I can't seem to connect. Once I uninstall and restart, everything is back to normal.

Still nothing.

However this thing is supposed to app unlock the phone as well right?

What's Policy#1005 supposed to be 16 or 40?

Mine is 40

but I pulled the file that was installed and opened it up in notepad. This is copied and pasted straight from it:

"HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies" cfgnodetype="characteristic">so which one should it be 40 or 16?

The app unlock sets it to 40, but it's purely for convenience and in no way related to the GPS functionality.

Unforunately I don't have a Q9H to test, although I plan to get one ;)

If someone else can validate this behaviour on their unit too, perhaps we can work through looking for a solution. Perhaps COM4 is in use already, or there is a different clash of some description.

Sorry for being dense, but I dont understand where in google maps i can set the com port or the baud rate? there are no options that i can find for them from within the program.
thanks to those more expert than me for the help.

GoogleMaps Settings....

Menu>Options>MyLocationSettings

The two box fields there the COM seltions and Baud Selection.

They dont have labels on those fields to tell you what they are...don't know why.

(FWIW...It took me a few looks to before I realized where those fields were...so youre not alone.)

yah i know but the must be a reason why the filed installed by the cab says 16 on mine and 40 on other people's file. my reg edit says that policy 1005 is 40 but that's simply because i app unlocked the phone before.
what im trying to say is that the modaco file ran into some issues on my device as that tmp file is different han other people's file.
so far thats the only difference i notced.

when i get home later tonight ill post the full content of the file for comparison.

Hey all-- new here but wanted to share my experience and see if anyone had any tips.

I too could not get the GPS working on the Blackjack II until using Paul's GPS activator HOWEVER, just as soon as I had it working, it stopped again.

Summary:
- Tried everything to get the GPS working with no results
- Installed the GPS Activator
- GPS worked immediatly with no restart or changing of ports. Got great reception indoors.
- 2 hours later, tried GPS againa and couldn't do anything to get it working again.
- Have tried changing ports, re-installing the GPS activator....

I'm stumped. Feels like a faulty device.

Any suggestions?

Thanks to everyone for their help!

You know, I've been wondering about this myself. I have no such settings anywhere in the version I'm using, which begs the question: which version of GMM are you (and everyone else) using to get access to these settings? I thought I had the latest version, which says v1.7.1.4 in the program's startup screen.

Could you please point me in the direction of the version that gives you access to changing the GPS settings? This is one of my gripes about GMM's site; there never seems to be any version information.

Thanks!

P.S. - I'm still waiting for someone to tell where in the registry they can alter the COM port settings after installing that GPS enable .cab file.

goto http://www.google.com/gmm to get the latest version of google maps.

Also, if you want to see the registry settings, just open the cab file with WinRAR, then open the XML file within with NotePad on your PC.

As far as changing the COM to a different port...I tried 1, 2, 3 and 9 and none of them worked (for me). COM4 may be the only correct port to connect GPS to on the BJ2.

I found a post with others having the same problem. I edited the registry to change it to COM5 on my Q9h and it works great! Thank you very much!

I installed the fix and immediately changed to COM5. Google maps seems kind of slow in downloading images and it would time out and quit on me several times, although GPS acquisition is fast indoors. WLS has absolutely no problems at all getting GPS location and downloading map images. Also having no problems web browsing with opera. Will wait until in better reception area to retest Google maps.

Have latest version of Gmaps and WLS, btw.

Ok, I'm chiming in with what I found using the COM4 setting on BJ II.

If I change GMaps' settings to use COM4, it can't find the satellites.

If I use Windows Live with the COM4 settings it works great.

If after using Windows Live, I go back to GMaps it has no problem using the GPS even with the COM4 setting. I guess WLS initializes it.

So, my solution is to take the COM4 setting out of Gmaps and use the "Set by Windows" setting. With this setting, GMaps finds the satellites with no problem.

Also, I have no problems with data connections.

OFF TOPIC: If anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

I'm trying to set mail so that it uses my storage card. From what I've gathered, I need to make the following registry changes:

1. Go to "HKLM\System\Inbox\Settings"
2. Then add these strings
PropertyPath = \Storage Card\Inbox
AttachPath = \Storage Card\Inbox\Attachments

The problem is, whenever I try to add these strings, I get an error and it won't let me add the strings.

The message simply says "Error" and nothing else. I am using Resco Registry Editor 2007.

Moreover, I can't seem to add any values to the "HKLM\System" area even though I can add values for "HKCU".

Am I missing some kind of Registry Lock on "HKLM"?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
