What iPAQ are you using ? For the 36xx series you should be using COM4, for others try COM5 or 6. Memory-Map should have no problems with the Emtac which is a great Jacket (I have one myself and use with Memory-Map :D

Hi thanks for the reply, I have an ipaq 3850. What manufacturer have you set up for?, I am showing a choice of Navman,NMEA,Garmin,Magellan or SIRF. on the com port it does show emtac-gpsjaq-1787 at com5, but I still get "cant open com port" when using the program, very strange?

regards

Hi there,

Found the problem!!

There is a slight conflict between this program and TomTom GPS, particularly if Tom Tom is installed first, which it was in my case. With TomTom installed, regardless of the settings I kept getting the cant open com port message each time I started memory map.

The solution was to completely uninstall TomTom GPS, then re-install it. For some strange reason, this now allows me to completely shut down the GPS part, which I could not do before, and get memory map working.

There may be something peculiar with the setup on my pocket pc, but at least this approach worked.

Thanks for the responses

regards
