I have a Fujitsu laptop with Toshiba BT drivers.
I can connect any number of other BT devices to my LT including a Palm T5 and a pair of Motorola S805s without problem.
I have used Street Atlas for many releases now, and have used the LT-40 USB connected GPS for several years. Works like a champ.
When I upgraded to SA 2010, it came with a BT-20. Cool. No Wires. I charged up the unit and went through he pairing procedure. 0000 for the passcode. My Toshiba BT settings shows the BT-20 as installed on COM40.
Now, when I turn on the BT-20 my assumption is it would auto connect to the Laptop. But it doesn't. I open up the Toshiba's BT Settings and do a manual connect on the BT-20. The Toshiba BT Settings shows the BT-20 in a connected state (The icon changed from unconnected to connected), however, the blue LED for the BT on the BT-20 does not stay constantly lit. It continues to blink.
I set up SA2010 to use COM40 for the Earthmate, but it won't see the GPS and never gets a signal, even though I get a green LED for the Satellite on the BT-20. The 'Sat Info' show 'No GPS'.
If I connect using a USB cable, reset SA201 to use the USB connection rather than COM40, then SA2010 sees the GPS.
So, first question. Should I need to manually connect the BT-20 in the Toshiba settings? I don't have to do that for any other BT device I use.
Second, why don't I get a solid blue LED for BT?
Third, why doesn't SA2010 'see' the BT-20? I understand this may have something to do with the above connectivity problem.
