Geode Connect virtual COM ports
11 Nov 2020
After installing Geode Connect for Windows version 2.2.2 or later (which may come pre-installed on Mesa units), it will create three generic virtual COM ports. This is in addition to the COM port it assigns when discovering and connecting to a Geode, as shown in the following image.
If you are not planning to use Geode Connect as an NTRIP client (see latest Geode manual for details), then you can delete these ports following these steps.
- In Geode Connect, select the top-left Menu > Virtual Ports as shown below.
Tap the trash can icon next to each port you would like to remove.
Under Enable Automatic Port Virtulization, select Off.
Tap OK when the "Action Required" message appears.
After the changes have been made in Geode Connect, restart your device, then open the Device Manager to verify the COM ports have been deleted.
If you encounter any difficulty with getting the virtual ports removed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
