    Can some1 :lease: :lease: :lease: give me some clear step by step instructions on how to set my XDA2s and Tomtom 2 Bluetooth GPS? I have downloaded the sotfware, tried to pair the device which it does recognise but the GPS icon comes up with a? on it, and it doesn't stay connected for long either.

    On my XDA it keeps saying GPS Disabled even when it's connected and has a strong signal?

    What am I doing wrong?

    :confused:

    Try the following under the GPS section (2nd page where the world map is).
    Top dropdown = NMEA 0183 v2 Bluetooth
    Bottom dropdown = Blue tooth Serial Port COM6
    Make sure the box is "ticked"
    Also, switch on Bluetooth, go into bluetooth setting,select service, highlight serial port and make sure there is a tick in the Enable service box.

    I assume you mean the speed camera warning software, click for checkpoint software. This site is really good as well click, you can download stuff from them as too.
