I have a s/e p910 this I can sync over Bluetooth (widcomm)but when I install activesync (I also have a garmin ique m5 with windows 2003) activesync try’s to grab the com port (com7) given to the p910 , although activesync has been configured to look at com 3 if only one sync program is running either will work fine
1 should I be able to configure two com ports on one Bluetooth dongle? but not to be used at the same time
2 dose anyone know a quick way to stop activesync once it has started ?

Welcome to Geekzone... Yes, you can configure multiple Bluetooth ports as you need, and make sure each synchronisation programs uses its own.

You might not be able to have all ports active at the same time though - I've noticed sometime the Bluetooth software on my PC will allow file transfer, LAN and serial connections at the same time, but most of the times only one serial connection can be active.
