XT55 GPS Startup User's Guide
2 Getting started
Please ensure that the XT55 module connects properly to the application platform. In order
to prevent mechanical damage, be careful not to force, bend or twist the module.
2.1 Terminal emulator setup
The example below is based on the Windows HyperTerminal application (terminal emulator
program), but XT55 can also be configured using other terminal programs. The XT55 is used
with a PC running Windows 2000.
At the first power-up you can use the terminal software, which establishes the
communication with a modem via a RS-232 serial port. The following example uses the
Hyper Terminal program in Windows 2000.
On Windows 2000, start the Hyper Terminal program. Assign the name for a new session on
the displayed window (e.g. XT55).
Press the OK button and select a COM port.
