I only get one com port. Is this a problem?
Yes, if it's a problem if it's the wrong one. Welcome to the BT world. Where did you get one com port, in BT devices?
Ok, since I wrote all that "garbage" for nothing, lets try some professional instructions, maybe then the garbage will make sense, as they are pretty much the same steps, at least to the BT pairing with your computer. If you don't get this done you will never get it working in the DeLorme program. Also, don't blame DeLorme for this mess, that's MS's version of Plug and Play, something that has to be done the first time you use a BT device. Once it's done, you normally don't need to revisit this for that device.
Go to the DeLorme Tech Support site, and make the screen look like the first screenshot. From there, you will get a list like the second screenshot. Ignore the fact that the titles are for a BlueLogger (DeLorme's first BT GPS), it's the same process.
If you have a Toshiba laptop, then you will probably need to do the "Connecting to an Earthmate® Bluetooth GPS using Toshiba Bluetooth Drivers".
If your using Windows then the "Connecting the Earthmate® Blue Logger® GPS to a PC using the Microsoft Bluetooth Drivers" is what you should do.
Do not have SA running while you do this. It's can't see the BT com ports until the BT device is successfully paired.
Each of these links is to a tutorial that shows you how to do it. Once you have it paired properly, and have the 2 com port #'s, then you can start SA and try to do that part of the garbage above.
If something doesn't work as described, STOP and tell use exactly what you were doing and exactly what happen.
