How to install the mobile version on a Windows Mobile 5/6 SmartPhone device?

This How-To will show you how to install the mobile version on a Windows Mobile 5/6 SmartPhone device. Please note the software differs from that of the Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC devices, in that Pocket PC devices have a Touch-Screen and SmartPhone devices do not!

PLEASE NOTE: this is for Windows Mobile 5 & 6 SmartPhone (withOUT Touch-Screens) and not for Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC (with Touch-Screens) (Windows Mobile Pocket PC version can be found here)

As a guideline we have some videos on installing the Windows Mobile software on a WinMobile5 and WinMobile6 device in our video section.  Click on either picture to navigate to the relevant video section..

 Setting up the Bluetooth on your Windows Mobile 6 SmartPhone device

Start Menu -> Settings -> Connections -> Bluetooth

 

To pair:

Make sure the GS-911 interface is powered (Green LED is on), by powering it from either USB or by connecting it to the Motorcycle

Under the Bluetooth devices window:

-> Add New Device -> select GS-911 device -> press [Next] -> enter passkey of "0000" (four zero's) -> press [Next]

You should get a message confirming the pairing

Select a Display Name (suggested you leave it as default) -> press [Next] -> make sure Serial Port Services is ticked -> press [Done]

 

To set up a Bluetooth COM port:

Under the Bluetooth devices menu:

Press [Menu] -> select "COM ports" option -> press [Menu] -> select "New Outgoing Port" -> Select GS-911 device -> [Next] -> Select COM port and remember it ;-) -> [Done]

Please NOTE: when setting up your GS-911 software a little later, if it does not show the COM port you have just selected, come back to this step and choose another COM port and make sure that Bluetooth is on (Bluetooth icon should be displayed in the top bar)!
