Subject : GPS port on MC67 doesn’t open


We’re not able to open the GPS port on the MC67 ( using Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 Professional)

Hereby code of a program in C# that works on MC65 but not on MC67:


SerialPort GpsSerialPort = new SerialPort();

GpsSerialPort.PortName = "COM8:";

GpsSerialPort.BaudRate = 4800;

GpsSerialPort.DataBits = 8;

GpsSerialPort.StopBits = StopBits.One;

GpsSerialPort.Handshake = Handshake.None;

GpsSerialPort.ReceivedBytesThreshold = 1;

  1. GpsSerialPort.Open();

textBox_GPS_result.txt = GpsSerialPort.ReadExisting();

  1. GpsSerialPort.Close();


In the settings of the MC67, we have the following  settings :

  1. 1. Tap > Settings > System > External GPS.
  2. 2. In the Programs tab, the GPS program port is set to COM8.
  3. 3.In the Hardware tab, the GPS hardware port is set to None


Does anyone had the same experience ? Is there a solution ?
