Use a Bluetooth GPS as an input

Bluetooth GPS

This feature enables you to make a direct connection to a Bluetooth GPS, without the need to configure any Bluetooth (virtual) COM ports. This will make configuration much easier, and operation much more stable. For this to be possible you must either Bluetooth hardware that supports the Microsoft or WidComm/BroadCom stacks. GpsGate will automatically detect and inform you if this is the case or not.

Detection using the Wizard

The easiest way to detect a Bluetooth GPS is to use the Setup Wizard. If you have already run the Wizard you can do it again by opening the Settings dialog and click Setup Wizard…

Manual detection

1. Open the Settings dialog from the tray menu. 


2. Select Bluetooth GPS from the drop-down. Click Open.


3. A dialog now opens which you can select your device.


This port is created by the Bluetooth driver that comes with your Bluetooth hardware.

If the GPS is connected and everything is working, then the GpsGate icon will turn yellow or green.
