I'm running Via Michelin on a Lifedrive with a Bluetooth GPS receiver, the
problem is that after a couple of minutes of the program running it keeps
prompting me to connect the GPS receiver even though it is connected
already.  Cancelling the prompt just brings it up again in a couple of
seconds....Frustrating problem, i've tried to do a reset but it still does
the same...Is there some bug in the bluetooth part of the lifedrive or
software....Any help appreciated...Tia

Hello Richie,

I had the same problem with my Lifedrive and Digimap and my Wonde XL GPS
receiver. I tried several other receiver and other prgramms and the palm
hotline, but nothing helped. In another newsgroup I found someone who told
me his lifedrive works with a Holux GPSlim 236. So I testet and later bought
the Holux and everything is now okay. I think the reason was the SIRF III
chip in the new (and more expensive) Holux.

Best regards,
