Is there a way to automatically connect the BT GPS to the PDA when you launch I-go? Currently I have to go to the BT manager and connect it manually.

If you really want to do that (I can't fathom why) you can use third party programs that first enable BT and then start a specified application.

Why? Easy.. It saves when having to connect the GPS every time I get into the car and drive off.. Its would be faster to only press the I-go icon, and off we go - similar to Tomtom navigator.

If I want to use it now I need to press:

"wireless connection" button on front screen
"Bluebooth Manager"
find the GPS and double click
then close the 2 windows I have opened
and THEN I can start i-go

If you know of an easier way then please let me know. Smile

Do you have any examples of application that will do this?

If you pair your BT GPS to your PDA. Tap and hold the icon of the BT GPS and select 'connect' (you only need to do this the first time). Start i-go get a connection to the gps with the correct port & baud rate. Then every time you start I-go (whether BT on PDA is on or off it will switch on) & if GPS is on or in stand by, as newer ones have, it connects in a few seconds. The works with both Tom Tom & I-GO.
