Now I know my Navman Pin 100 / Mio 168 is a bit long in the tooth, as is the SmartSt maps for Aus,they're also no longer supported either Rolling Eyes , so I shelled out and bought a copy of Garmin mobile XT off of ebay
Program loads OK but when it gets to asking where the GPS device is ?
I selected "Other GPS device" and it recognises the Port (2) where the inbuilt GPS aerial is.
I selected COM port 2 and baud rate 4800 but the software just cycles saying the GPS device cannot be found ?

As soon as I start SmartSt, it locks on to 5 satellites, so I don't think it's a hardware problem.

The big question is...........How do I get Garmin software to recognise the inbuilt GPS aerial ??

The Mio 168 runs pocket pc software, I have disabled the Navman software in "running programs" - do I have to uninstall completely ?

Can any of you help ?

I've answered your question in the other thread you started here, and have locked this one.
