GPS COM port is occupied problem. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use windows mobile professional  6 SDK and VS2008.I use the microsoft code sample for GPS application(Open,read coordinates and close GPS).It works well 2 times.

    And then when i use it third time to read my location doesn't work.The mobile has windows mobile 6.5 OS which has GPS Viewer application.

    when i open it i get this error

    "The GPS COM port is occupied. Please end all GPS applications and a
    restart GPS viewer again."

    I am sure that i exit from my application and turn the mobile off and then open it but i get the same error.

  • Did you try to reset your device or try to run the sample on another machine?

  • Yes i close and open the device many times the same problem is occured again.
    No way i have to solve this error in that device cause this is the device i will deploy my
    application on it and also cause the GPS works 2 times later.So i think the problem in the port.
