first of all, your BT GPS must work with your mac, for me, it works well with GPSnavX, in bluetooth mode.
- When lunching SerialClient, you should have in the Serial Port menu something like "HOLUXGR-231-SPPslave-1". select it.
Keep Stream Path to "/tmp/serial".
- Turn On your GPS then hit "connect" on SerialClient.
This should connect your GPS to your mac in Bluetooth mode (the bluetooth icon on the upper right side of the screen turns transmitting mode).
- In parralels property page, check that the serial 1 (or create another serial if you want) is linked to /tmp/serial in server mode.
Depending on the software you are using on win side, you will have perhaps to reduce the baud rate of SeialClient to lower value than 115200.
I have successfully tried with GPS viewer from holux (at 115200 baud).
And voilÃ , it works great for me.
If you are not able to connect SerialClient to your GPS (when clicking the connect button, nothing seems to append) turn off then on your GPS. It makes the GPS detectable for the mac (it was the first problem I had when trying to connect it).
I hope this can solve your problem,
