Default Simulating bluetooth GPS in blackberry 8100 simulator

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I am developing a blackberry application for reading GPS data from a bluetooth GPS device.I am using jde 4.2 (bb 8100 simulator) for can I simulate bluetooth GPS in my simulator. I have added new GPS location and checked 'Bluetooth GPS receiver in range' in 'simulate' menu in the simulator.But I cant detect or retreive GPS data. I am adding my code for detecting bluetooth devices.

if (BluetoothSerialPort.isSupported()) {
// Get the BluetoothSerialPortInfo. This will be an array of all
// Bluetooth
// devices that have been paired with the BlackBerry.
portInfo = BluetoothSerialPort.getSerialPortInfo();
int numDevices = portInfo.length;

for (int count = numDevices - 1; count > 0; --count) {
String deviceName = portInfo[count].getDeviceName();
if (deviceName.equals("DATALOGG")) {
application.callScreen.add(new LabelField("data logg found"));
btConnectionURL = portInfo[count].toString();
COMMReader commReader = new COMMReader(); //thread for reading serial data from the device

showFailureMessage("device not found");
} else {
showFailureMessage("bt not supported");

But BluetoothSerialPort.isSupported() always returns false.Should I need to make any changes in code or configuration.Since this method is signed category, I cant test it in actual device now.

Please help me to solve this. It is an urgent. Thanks in advance.
