Windows Mobile 6.5 builtin GPS driver selection

Hi All,

I've just installed the Garmin Mobile XT 5.02 in my Omnia II, which GPS driver that i should select ?
few years back i remember that the XTRA settings must be turned off on Omnia I (i-900) so if anyone could shed some light in this matter would be highly appreciated.
