Default GPS vs. Modem

Please Login to Remove!

I recently purchased and installed a Garmin GPS10x on my 8320. I tried to use my 8320 as a tethered modem this morning and my laptop no longer recognizes the 8320 as a modem. Is this normal and expected behavior?

Default been there, done that

did I mention I was using it successfully prior to installing the bluetooth GPS? the issue appears to be that Windows no longer sees the blackberry modem when it is connected. my thoughts are that perhaps the GPS is using the only available com port on the curve????
