hardware problems are quite usual with embedded GPS device, it can be 'idle' for a long long time and then suddenly start working.

I have my own apps that use GPS on WM (I cannot send them obvioulsly :) ) , but check this one (in C++): http://www.christec.co.nz/blog/archives/354

Thanks anyway, but the gps does not work even in this way. could be some configuration error on my device? Setting enabled (I have changed many ....) GPS Program Port Com0; GPS Hardware port com1 baud rate 4800; Manage GPS Automatically activated. Thanks

usually GPS is on COM9 for hardware, at least it is so on 2 different phones I have right now.

if you don't mind, try to cold-reset the device to return to factory settings

What kind of PDA you have? I'd recommend you to install a GPS application on your device and check the GPS. I like HTC GPS tool (freeware):
