"axbl" let us know in the PPCW.Net Forum about a project of Tobias Waldvogel which seems to be a real solution for the HTC Himalaya platform to use with Bluetooth GPS receivers now and he linked there to the project page which looks pretty promising:

All of you who have bought already a Bluetooth GPS might have noticed that the Bluetooth support on the O2 XDA II and the Telekom MDA II is pretty incomplete. Therefore I started this project to add the missing functionality.

Currently you are able to pair your device with the PDA. But afterwards you need a COM port to communicate with the device. This software creates this COM port for you.

Later on I will add some additional features related to Bluetooth.

Sounds really impressive so here are more information:

  • Get the latest version from the download section and install it.
  • Remove the Bluetooth device from the list of coupled device and pair it again.
  • Now you will get an addition dialog which let you choose the COM, which you would like to assign to the device. Click on create port and you are done.
  • The port is available immediately, there is no need to reboot.
  • There is an option to activate and deactive Bluetooth automatically. When you start using your Bluetooth device you will get a dialog asking you whether you want to activate Bluetooth and afterwards there is another dialog asking if you want to deactivate it again to save power.

Because I currently don't have a Bluetooth GPS receiver I can't not test it (shame on me - maybe something for my Christmas wish list ;-)) but maybe anyone of you - with a HTC Himalaya - can test it and can give us some comments below?

Cheers ~ Arne
