Windows 7: Com Port Changes On Start-up.


24 Dec 2013   #1

Windows 7 Starter 32 bit
 
 
Com Port Changes On Start-up.

I am using a eeeC eM350 10.1" Netbook running Windows 7 Starter 32 Bit with Intel Atom 1.66GHz processor.
Connecting a Clip-On Bluetooth GPS to run OziExplorer, Moving Map software. Initially GPS connects and map runs properly. However over time, suspect overnight with long downtime or with possible date change the Com port used will not be recognised on next start up. If I uninstall GPS/reinstall a different port is selected and reconnection properly made again. Only the Com Port changes, no other values for Ozi configuration.
Forum assist is requested. Thanks.

With Bluetooth, maybe it disconnects.. Do you have a setting where you can recognize the device upon reconnect.

My phone will do that sometimes with my bluetooth headset.

Thx for reply. Think I have solved problem by checking Bluetooth Suite in "Services" to Auto Load so that Driver is ready when GPS connects by BT. So far so good. Overnight will be the test.
