ankit, 02 Aug 2008u are right in delhi too the htc customer care is useless if u ask them about the gps they don... moreTo make the GPS working, follow these steps
1. Navigate to Start->Settings->System(tab page)
2. Select "External GPS"
3. Ensure GPS program port is set to COM4 on the Program tab page
4. Ensure GPS hardware port is set to None and Baud rate is set to 4800
5. On Access tab page ensure "Manage GPS automatically(recommended)" is checked.
Now you need to configure your Map software, e.g. Mapking or Google Map
Steps to configure Mapking application
1. Open MapKing
2. On bottom of screen there is Tool menu. Go to Tool->More->Options
3. Switch to GPS tab page
4. Select "By User" radio button and set the three options as
GPS Signal: Normal
5. Close the page.
6. Your are all set for navigation!!
On the MAP view page go to Tools->Routing. Here set Start Point as "By GPS".
Now back on Mapview page click on GPS icon on right bottom.
On the top right you will see a ? mark and battery icon. Also the orange light on your phone will start blinking indicating it is searching sattelites. You need to be standing in open area for the phone to detect satellites. If satellites are detected, it the ? mark will change to GPS signal strength indicator. The map wil automatically shift to the position your are standing!!! As you walk the arrow mark will move indicating realtime position!!
Could anyone help me with GPS settings for HTC3300 pcketpc. I had it working very well for initially 6 months but now it shows "gps signal low". I have kept it in auto mode but unable to use GPS.
Please help me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Never buy this PDA !
This device is really catastrophic for a lot of details, overall the battery.
The connectivity, the link with the PC are wonderful but a lot of functions are not nice enough for such price. Try to send a MMS, for instance !
The use of GPS is difficult, the sound is very bad and in general the phone is very difficult to use. Don't buy, trust me.
previously my htc working well with activesync 4.5 with XP sp2. somehow after the window update to sp3, then i can't sync anymore, but the device still connected well and i can doing files transfer well. anyone can advise what to do on this?

If anybody can help me! Why alarm doesn't work when phone is turn off?! I've slept over this morning ...
This phone is just good (not awesome, not great) for those who want windows mobile phone. If you want user friedly phone don't go for it. PDA phones are useless for for quick use.
The only problem I feel is the HTC service center in Hyderabad. People at service center are absolutely rude and idiots. They don’t have even a small sense of politeness.I don’t know whose problem is that, but i will hate using the product of a company whose service center is not good at all.
I have had this phone about 1 year. Works well - sharing internet to laptop, good standby, good tomtom gps with european maps, hands free is excellent, camera not so good though. you can use skype if overclock processor.
hey guys just got this phone 3 days back. its an excelent phone in all the department.great battery life, nice roller mouse,good music,crisp sound from the speaker and headphone too. except cant use own headphones as theres no 3.5mm jack. am from india and 3.5mm adapter is not availble here.
so far all going good except for the gps. it has mapking software which i install but it doesn't offer my city map ie kolkata so god knows wat am gonna do next with my city map. i downloaded google map too but this gps still doen't want to work. am sure am doing some mistake somewhere and the manuals doen't give the clear instruction about how to go abt it. i sucessfully downloaded the epemerisis data using gprs and its valid for next 3 days but still the gps is not working either through mapking or google. p3300 users please help me out coz am going mad now.its been almost 3 days am after this gps function. rest is all excellent in the phone.
This phone is just awesome! I've had it about a year and I'm very happy with it. I flashed a custom ROM from XDA-Developers and I have touchflo and a bunch of other extra software. Processor speed is OK. I use battery status to overclock at 247Mhz. The battery lasts about 1.5 to 2 days. I rarely have to reset the device, the roller R and the scroll wheel combined with the pointed to allow you use it one handed for everything. GPS with TomTom is the best feature of the phone. It doesn't have a reg D-pad but the 8 front buttons make up for that when playing games. Very satisfied.
