I am trying the DealExtreme (DX) GPS SCU #23569 with GPS and Bluetooth. The device initially came with a Chinese WinCE build (the GPS software is in english). The System locked and needed reflashing. The wiki page (in John's post above)
loads an OS that does not have the BT enabled, but there is a separate patch to enable the BT which enables the BT. There is another OS load at

The second way is to boot to CE (see the Wikipage link above), run the bluetooth program using a shortcut, then run the EV Dashboard. For the shortcuts, create a text file in /Windows/Desktop called StartBT.lnk, and add this line:
To start the EV Dashboard, create another shortcut in the same directory with:
Desktop shortcuts seem to disappear duing hard resets or power failures. There's probably a fix for that...
