Actually, I'm not sure if this is a bug in gpsbabel itself or some problem in
lower layers, like kernel's bluetooth stack, feel free to reassign if that's

Till I was on openSUSE 12.2, I used a Globalsat BT-338X GPS via bluetooth with
gpsbabel without problems. This is a gps logger, and logged data can be
downloaded to the SUSE box using something like this:

rfcomm bind 0 00:0D:B5:38:BA:C6
gpsbabel -i dg-100 -f /dev/rfcomm0 -o gpx -F output.gpx

Sometimes I already had the following two errors:

unknown answer ID 12


dg100_recv_byte(): read timeout

But in case those errors occurred, I just had to re-try and it worked like a
charm second (or at rare occasions -- third) time.

However, since I upgraded to openSUSE 12.3, now I get a different error

Expected to read 106 bytes, but got 105

And I have no way to download the gps track. If I boot an openSUSE 12.2 live
dvd on the same machine, download works again.

In case bluetooth hardware counts, this is on a Lenovo ThinkPad T520. The
bluetooth hardware otherwise looks OK, e.g. I can send files from my phone to
the laptop without problems. If more info is needed, please ask.
