CF Card GPS
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

HI-303III CF Card GPS
HI-303III is a GPS receiver with Compact Flash type1 / mini-1394
interfaces and built-in active antenna for high sensitivity to tracking
signal. Based on the SiRF star III chip set and supports all functions
(Single Sat updates in reduced visibility, Superior urban canyon
performance, Foliage Lock for weak signal tracking, etc.).
I like this GPS because it plugs into the
top of many Pocket PCs and the antenna folds back for a great view of
the sky. I have tested it in my iPAQ hx4705 with SeeYou Mobile and
Glide Navigator II and it worked great.
