Using Teraterm to troubleshoot TCP/IP, USB, and Bluetooth connections
Teraterm is an free program that can be used to troubleshoot
the NMEA connections (except TCP/IP client mode, it cannot
listen). Obtain the software here:
If Share GPS is a TCP/IP server, start teraterm with the
IP address of the mobile and the port Share GPS is
If the Share GPS connection is USB,
set the hostname to "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" and use
the PC port from the ADB command (first port).
If Share GPS is setup for Bluetooth, check for the
correct COM port in the Bluetooth settings.
In Teraterm, setup for the COM port verified above.
Share GPS should indicate connected and you should see
NMEA data coming in.
If Share GPS indicated connected, but no data is coming
in, it's possible the mobile does not support NMEA. In
that case, go into Share GPS setttings and select Create
NMEA. Re-start the connection and see if that works.
If Share GPS never indicates connected, there is an IP
or COM port problem. Ensure you are using the right COM
port in your Bluetooth settings for the device.
