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.

Thanks

thanks man, it finally works after doing the following registry tweak:

and selecting the GPS Intermediate Driver.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver\Drivers\Samsung GPS Hardware\InputBufferSize: set from 4096 to 512
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver\Drivers\Samsung GPS Hardware\OutputBufferSize: set from 4096 to 512
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver\Drivers\Samsung GPS Hardware\SleepOnNoData: set from 100 to 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver\Multiplexer\MaxBufferSize: set from 16384 to 1024

Open in new window
