Fortuna Slim Sirf BT GPS and Zaurus SL-5500G

GPS units
  • Hi all,

    qpeGPS ( is working on a Zaurus SL-5500G with the following equipment:

    Fortuna Slim Sirf III Bluetooth GPS
    Ramco CF Bluetooth
    OZ 3.5.3

    I had to use an older version of gpsd, because the one from the feed isn't working with qpeGPS. Sorry, but I can't find the website any more I got this "gpsd" from.

    I did the bluetooth pairing with PID "0000" and edited the rfcomm.conf file so that it looked like (based on the thread "Fortuna Clip-on Bluetooth on Zaurus C760"):

    rfcomm0 {
    # Automatically bind the device at startup
    bind yes;
    # Bluetooth address of the device - get from 'hcitool scan'
    device xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx;
    # RFCOMM channel for the connection
    channel 1;
    # Description of the connection
    comment "Fortuna Slim Sirf GPS";

    That was all.
