GNSS Driver for Arcpad - GNSS receiver does not connect
What to do if the GNSS receiver does not connect when using Arcpad?
There is primarily 2 reasons :
1. Not enough satellites are received to compute a position (it may be caused by a bad antenna connection or simply by an obstructed environment).
2. ArcPad is not receiving the GNSS receiver output; below we cover a few reasons why this may happen:
■ Make sure that the GNSS receiver is powered on and correctly connected to the mobile computer.
■ Make sure that you are using an appropriate profile. For instance, are you using the proper protocol, COM port and baud rate?
■ Make sure that the antenna is attached to your GNSS receiver and has a clear view of the sky. Wait a few minutes for your receiver to compute a position fix.
■ Verify your Windows Mobile Power option. To save energy, your receiver may get disconnected (refer to article Power Settings).
■ If you use a Bluetooth device that used to connect properly, it may be time to redo your Bluetooth pairing from scratch. To do so, start by deleting your older pairing:
a. Using Windows Mobile Start menu, go to Settings;
b. Select the Bluetooth icon (or the Connection Tab and then the Bluetooth icon);
c. Select the COM Ports tab, highlight your device (hold the stylus on it) to get the popup menu and delete this item;
c. Select the Devices Tab, highlight your device ( hold the stylus on it) to get the popup menu and delete this item;
d. Redo the Bluetooth paring;
