Phone: HTC Legend rooted with r4. (Thanks Paul, fantastic work)

When I try to pair with a Qstarz BT-Q890 bluetooth GPS mouse, I get an error: "There was a problem pairing with Qstarz GPS because thhe PIN or Passkey is incorrect."
I entered 0000 for the PIN, which is the correct value according to the manual and also works on my ubuntu lucid netbook.

Additionaly the GPS is no longer found in a BT scan after this. When entering other PIN values, this doesn't happen, so it looks to me like the GPS accepts the PIN....

Unfortunately I haven't tried pairing with the GPS before rooting the phone, so I am not sure if it is related to rooting or just to the Legend firmware.

I would really like this to work, any suggestions?

Regards, Jaap

Hi, don't know if you ever resolved this, but in case you didn't - I was having exactly the same problem with a stock Legend and a Qstarz BT-Q818xt I just bought. I managed to resolve it by rooting and installing the latest CyanogenMod 7 - it now pairs and works beautifully!

Cheers,

*sigh* I guess those posts did work after all, huh?
Any way I can delete the "extra" ones?
