Com 3 is the only unsed com port for the use of gps. 5 and 6 will keep the gps active and suck the battery dry. You can either use the exsisting cab file for com 5 and make the two changes in the registry after the install or using an xml editer change the two entries in the cab file before the install.

I have been loving this machine, sure you will as well. Hopefully you can find a final solution to this as easy as the original was. I am still way too stupid to do anything on my own.

Congrats on you rpurchase. I just received my Q9 Global and I find it is the best phone I have ever owned. I can use Windows live out of the box, aquisition times are a bit long though. Google maps doesn't want to work for me.

At OT question. Anyone notice on their Q9 that some of the keyboard keys don't have that chicket little "click" sound when pressed. I have about 3 or 4 keys ike that. Phone is brand new. I don't think it affects functionality any but I wanted to run it by the people here first. Should I exchange it? Every else seems great!

Im looking over the registry edit in the xml file and you change the 4 to a 3 for the 2nd index value or you change it to 5?

Im looking @ getting a q9 global and hoping this will work.

Change both of those values to a 3.

However, I should have my Q this week all being well, after which i'll be issuing a new CAB, and other tweaks if required!

Paul,

Is this pdf of any use to you?

http://www.spritesof...or-UsingGPS.pdf

Mentions the hidden GPS applet and how to unhide. Also mentions the purpose of the "Virtual GPS port."

Today I used Windows Live, took about 3 minutes for the GPS in my Q9 to lock on. I used it for about 10 minutes, then completely exited the application. Came back to it in about 2 hours, and it locked instantly. Could the problem be that every time we start the app it's a cold GPS start? I played with an Advantage 7501, and its gps had a program that would automatically download via the internet the positions of the satelites every 6 hours or so.

Could it be that TeleNav is doing this download, and that is the reason for the better gps performance using that app?

Has anyone tried this registry edit to "unhide" the GPS settings? My battery is dead or I would give it a shot...

Enabling GPS Hack

Some Pocket PC OEMs hid the GPS control panel. However, it can be unhidden by

going into the registry and deleting any

"Redirect"

or

"Hide"

keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\GPS Settings.

Add a Dword Value

Group = 2 (DWORD decimal)

Soft-reset

If it does work, please be sure to credit me with the find, (the reg hack was found in the pdf from Sprite I linked to.) ; )

But doesn't it give us the idea behind the multiplexed intermediate driver? Seems that opening up the actual com port is not the way to go.

Also, don't you think there is a gps applet being hidden?

I don't quite get how to change to COM3 after installing the COM5 activator cab. Can you list the locations and what to change please? I want to try and see what I get. Without using *some* sort of activator patch, my GPS is for s*** it seems.

I really hope Paul is able to sort this out. GPS is the reason I bought my Q9. <_<
