GPS for iPAQ 4750
      #24880 - 08/15/06 12:07 AM

Hi there

I have been useing my pocket pc and a h/p bluetooth gps now for 2 months and its very good but the other day I turned it on and the blue tooth light came on and then went off and would not come on again, until you turned it off and on again and the same thing would happen. and the pda and the pc would not see the gps, message "gps not found."

Is the gps had its day or can I do reset, but dont know how and I have not got a manual for it. Please help as I need this navigation software when im on the road.

Sometimes the Blueooth radio goes a little wacky on the iPAQ. If the PC and GPS can't speak to the iPAQ any more, I'd try rebooting (soft restting) the iPAQ then hard reseting the iPAQ to erase it and start fresh. Be sure to make a backup of your iPAQ before hard reseting it though.
