Reassigning bluetooth virtual COM port

    When you connect to a new bluetooth device (GPS), the bluetooth manager in
    Windows Vista Business chooses the number of the COM port itself. COM41 is
    too high for maping software, and I need to reassign it to COM1 - COM10. Does
    anyone know how I might do this?

  2. Hello,
    Open device manager
    Goto ports
    Locate the Standard Serial over Bluetooth(Comx)
    Right-click on it and go to properties
    Choose the port setting tab
    Choose the advanced Button
    There is a drop down box which allows you to select a com port number to
    use.
    Thanks,
