    Default How to get Nokia LD-3W bluetooth GPS work with backtrack?

    Has anybody got Nokia LD-3W bluetooth GPS work with Backtrack?
    I haven't got those two work together =( logs says that there is something wrong on pin code (it's 0000 on LD-3W).
    I have tried to use hcid.conf like this:

    options {
    passkey "0000";
    }

    But it still doesn't work =( I tried to use extgps software on my nokia e90 and it had same problem... backtrack said rejected right after I gave e90 pincode 0000

    Every document what I found with google says that I should use pinhelper or so on but backtrack doesn't seem to have those =(

    Any ideas/help? anything?

    You have to make a pincodes file which will be located in the following folder:

    /var/lib/bluetooth/nn:nn:nn:nn:nn:nn/

    nn:nn:nn:nn:nn:nn as in your BT4 bluetooth mac address.

    I got this from: HOWTO/Bonding – BlueZ

    In the pincodes file you will have to write on one line "MAC_ADDRESS (space) PINCODE"

    So if your GPS device's MAC address was "00:11:22:33:44:55" and you wanted to make the pincode "1234" then you would write on one line:

    00:11:22:33:44:55 1234

    After this you should probably edit your rfcomm.conf file so that the rfcomm connection is made automatically to the channel you specify when you start bluetooth.

    Hope this helped!

    Thanks for your helped but I can't get it work =(
    I have rfcomm.conf:

    rfcomm0 {
    bind no;
    device 00:11:22:33:44:55;
    channel 1;
    comment "Nokia LD-3W"
    }

    and file:
    /var/lb/bluetooth/00:11:22:33:44:55/pincodes
    where i have just 00:11:22:33:44:55 0000

    hcid.conf:
    options {
    autoinit yes;
    security user;
    pairing multi;
    }

    (I tried with security auto but it didn't help).

    but when I try:
    rfcomm connect 0
    it says:
    "Can't connect RFCOMM socket: Connection refused"

    and /var/log/system:
    Feb 23 13:04:28 bt bluetoothd[7662]: pin_code_request (sba=55:44:33:22:11:00, dba=00:11:22:33:44:55)

    Still have my last message on moderators but I'm pretty sure that I got this work.
    I first put my GPS mac to /var/lib/bluetooth/nn:nn:nn:nn:nn:nn/ but that has to be my bluetooth dongle mac.
    After that rfcomm said "Connected /dev/rfcomm0 to 00:11:22:33:44:55 on channel 1".
    I haven't got any GPS coordinates yet but GPS led says that it's connected via bluetooth =)

    Thank you so much.

    Your welcome! You shouldn't even bother using hcid.conf in Bactrack 4 since BlueZ now only uses main.conf.
    Also, you should change the "no" by bind in your rfcomm.conf so that it'll automatically bind when you restart bluetooth.
    Have fun!
