    WIN CE Win CE Primo 2.4 default Baud Rate and Com Port

    Hi, does the Win CE iGO Primo 2.4 use a default communication Baud Rate and Com Port if you don't specify one in the sys.txt file?

    My 2Din car Primo GPS works perfectly without specifying any Baud/Port nor any specific device type in the sys.txt. Either the Primo default Baud/Port happens to be the same as my 2din GPS or the software scans all available ports and picks the one that is active. It is probably the former because I see most of the sys.txt that people are using and they specify the Baud/Port. Although I wouldn't be surprise if the Primo does scans automatically the available Ports and looks for activity and the sys.txt entries are just carryover from older iGOs and aren't necessary.

    ...
    There is NO such a thing like default port and BR. It depends of device.
    Primo does autodetection during starting, and record that values in some file in save folder.

    So @upsss, as he said @Boki_Srb depends of your device.
    UNLESS if you have one of this devices : data/config/devices folder.
    Not all data.zip they have a list of devices, depend from where did you get it...

    OK, if Primo automatically detect the Baud/Port then what difference does it make which device you have, why "it depends on the device". Also, if the software detects automatically the Baud/Port device then specifying the Baud/Port in the sys.txt is redundant.

    Because sometimes Primo does not fint port and baud after all and a little help in sys.txt (or sys.ini) is required.
    The devices listed in the devices folder also need a sys.txt line that points to the specific device.
