    I'm trying to build a programm that allows to get the serial information from the internal GPS device of a WM6 device.

    I can establish a connection to the serial port (tried with serial2 and serialex) but I don't receive any data from the GPS.

    When connecting with pocket putty I can see the strings from the GPS so the device is OK.

    Any Ideas?

    What is the device? Some makes (HTC) have a problem operating with the .NET Serial Port class. Pocket PuTTY is a native code program so wouldn't have the problem. You should try the GPSDriver library or my GPSDriverNMEA library if you want the raw NMEA strings.

    Yes, its a HTC (HTC Iolite)

    Tried your GPSDriverNMEA lib and it is doing exactly what I wanted.

    Thank you very much :)


    PS. I saw that UDP lib I'm using has also been written by you. Can both lib be used for comercial products as well, or only for open source projects?
