Pocket PC: Can not connect to Shared GPS under Windows Mobile 5
Here the problem is, that HTC did not implement
correctly the new intermediate GPS offered by Windows Mobile 5. In
the meantime, we created a Patch that resolves the problem. The
latest Version, which you can download from
, already incorporates this Patch.
I have Problems with GPS on my HTC P3300 Artemis (aka as MDA compact III or XDA Orbit)
The new shared GPS unfortunately is not correctly
implemented by some Pocket PC manufacturers. You can see that under
Settings on the Pocket PC the GPS Icon is missing.
To make this Icon visible, you need to modify the Pocket PC
Registry. To do that, you need a Registry Editor. We recommend the
Freeware "Mobile Registry Editor" which you can download
You have to do the following changes:
- Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\GPS Settings
- Delete the DWORD marked "hide"
- Add a DWORD called "Group" and give it the value of "2" (dec)

Then, in the GPS Settings in the Mobile Golf Scorer™ you can select
the Port "Shared", this has the great advantage, that more than one

The P3300 device is not fully compatible with Windows Mobile, there is a particular function missing which signals the Software that there is GPS Data available. There is a workaround for this problem.
Please use the free JAL Port Splitter application which you can
and install it to your PDA.
Before starting Mobile Golf Scorer™, please start Port Splitter and set your input GPS port (write manually COM4 into the box) and an output virtual port (for example COM5).
Then start Mobile Golf Scorer™ and set your GPS port same as Port Splitter's virtual
port (for example, COM5).
