Good news reached me this morning regarding the missing Bluetooth serial port support of HTC's Himalaya Phone Edition (aka O2 xda II/T-Mobile MDA II).
As you might remember the missing serial profile prevents from connecting the Himalaya to other Bluetooth accessories which requires the serial profile - like Bluetooth GPS receivers.
I've recently reported about a workaround from Tobias Waldvogel, called "Pocket Bluetooth Tools" which fixed this problem. However, also HTC is working on a solution as you can see on the following screenshots:

Way to go! :-) Every update from HTC is appreciated and again it shows how much they and their partners takes care about required and missing features! This fix can be expected to be included with the next ROM update. However, so far no date about the availability of the different updates (O2, T-Mobile, i-Mate Qtek) were given.

Cheers ~ Arne

Yes, I can verify it works fairly well, it is in the "unofficial" 1.60 T-mobile update floating around.

It doesnt work with TomTom because you can't select the Port 4/5 in TomTom GPS - it isnt there !

I have installed the unofficial 1.6 OS version. Although it is much more stable than 1.03ENG I had previously, it does nothing to address the bluetooth problem. I've never heard of a serial port emulator splitting inbound and outbound data across two ports, and I don't know of any software that supports this. Tobias's fix is still required and works well in this release, what are HTC doing?

Does anyone know how to emulate a serial port using bluetooth? I have a device attached (PIC micro-controller) using the serial cable. I want the system to be wireless...
