I have a globalsat bt318 bluetooth gps.It will connect to the xda2i but the bluetooth manager only records an outgoing connection with no incoming .The software that comes with the gps has a com port scan device nad selects com 1 , although I have tried all of them.The software also suggested using baud rate 38400 , although i have tried all of the rates.I've tried everything it seems burt can not get any bluetooth input to the xda21.Any ideas?

Mpatterson, if com 1 is indeed being allocated, you will need to go to settings/connections and make sure the "beams" box is unchecked, also any external keyboard driver, if present will need disabling. When bonding the bluetooth gps you should be asked if you wish to use the serial profile, you should accept this, it should then allocate com5 and com6 for inbound/outbound.
