Pocket PC Comm Port Testing Software - Free
GPS units that connect to the Pocket PC through the connector on the bottom of the Pocket PC are usually available to Pocket PC software programs on comm port 1.  CF card and BlueTooth GPS units are usually not accessible on comm port 1 and may be found on any comm port from 2 through 9.  Crux_View.exe is a simple Pocket PC utility that can be used to figure out (using trial and error) which comm port is used to connect to the GPS.  Crux_View can also be used to enable or disable WAAS functionality.  To turn on WAAS functionality, copy the Crux_View.exe utility to your PC by right clicking on it and selecting "Save Target As" from the pop-up menu.  Then use Microsoft ActiveSync to copy it to your Pocket PC.  I recommend that you copy it to the Windows/Start Menu directory.  Run it and use trial and error to find the comm port used by the GPS.  To enable WAAS go to the SBAS tab and set the "SBAS Channel" to "AUTO" and press the "Apply" button.

WMS3-E EMTAC mini-S3 BlueTooth GPS - WAAS Enabled
At almost a third smaller than previous models, the mini-S3 packs in a ton of features. Powered by the SiRF III chipset, the mini-S3 is fast to acquire a GPS fix and shines in dense cover as well as urban canyons.

Package Includes:

  • mini-S3 Bluetooth GPS
  • AC (Wall) Charger
  • DC (Automotive) Charger
  • CD Manual

Other new features include a user replaceable Lithium-Ion battery, charging via mini-USB, and AC & DC chargers.

The mini-S3 continues the tradition of its predecessors and allows you to receive GPS data wirelessly via Bluetooth. By sending GPS position data over Bluetooth, the user can position the receiver for the best possible reception all without wires. The internal lithium ion battery powers the GPS for at least 8 hours of continuous use, saving your PDA or Laptop's battery.

The SiRFstarIII is a high performance and low power consumption chip set. Its superior sensitivity has the ability to trace signals from 20 geo-synchronous satellites simultaneously while updating information from the satellites once every second. These improvements in reception capacity enable the user to enjoy clear reception in environments with typically poor signal reception, making the mini-S3 ideal for navigating in urban canyons, in the mountains, or under dense foliage.
