Ipaq 1945 Continually Loses Bluetooth
      #27425 - 04/22/07 04:25 PM

I recently purchased OCN6 GPS system and I am experiencing problems with the bluetooth connection on my IPAQ 1945. I have no problems detecting the GPS receiver via bluetooth and communication with OnCourse is least initially. However, periodically I lose bluetooth on the IPAQ altogether. Let me explain.

OCN starts and the bluetooth connection is established. Sometimes the audio voice announces "GPS connection lost" and I am unable to access bluetooth on the IPAQ. Bluetooth Manager is gone and the only way to get it back is by performing a soft reboot.

There have been times when the system operates without any problems for hours at a time, but lately the bluetooth loss seems to be happening with more frequency.

Has anyone else experienced this (it doesn't necessarily have to be through a GPS application) and does anyone have any ideas on how to correct the problem.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hmm... that model was indeed known for having problems with Bluetooth drivers, as well as other drivers, conflicting or overloading the system needlessly easily... although I don't have a specific answer, you might try cutting down on unnecessary other software you may have loaded onto the device (including Today screen plugins).
