Hi,
Didn't know if anyone else had this problem. I had a Viewsonic V35 & bought a Pharos Ostia GPS unit (i-GPS-360). It worked fine.
I have since purchased a Viewsonic V37 with the 2003 Upgrade. I cannot get the Pharos Ostia to work on it. I called Pharos & was on hold forever before the voicemail told me that nobody was available & hung up on me. Is anyone aware of a patch or something that would allow this to work?
Thank you.

How are you connecting the GPS? Via Bluetooth? I have the same model (bundled with MS Streets & Maps) and will be getting a Bluetooth sleeve for it soon, so I can test with my Pocket PC here.

Hi,
I connect using a cable. There is a serial port that connects to the GPS unit and then cables that connect to the Viewsonic & cigarette lighter. I just tried the unit on the V35 and that works so the GPS unit is fine. It's something to do with the V37 & the GPS unit. What is a bluetooth sleeve? I have an SDIO card for the V37 - pretty cool except when I leave it in by mistake.
Thanks.

Hi,
I figured out the problem!! I have a mini keyboard that I use sometimes with the Viewsonic. I disabled the keyboard and the GPS unit worked fine! Yippee! Thanks for the help.
