Maybe "too far south to Hike" - I.E. You're in the Channel, you should be using SmartSwimmer instead! :D

Had unzipped the CAB files onto the desktop before loading into the phone...complete amateur :oops:

Also appears my phone is already unlocked despite the orange registratin program I downloaded insisting that it IS locked as I finally installed this no problem. My gps unit is in the car, with my wife, can't play! ;)

I get 'no fix' then 'too far south' but it's only when the gps isn't locked on. Otherwise it's perfect and just what I was looking for. ;)

Tested on SPV E200 with a Holux GR-231

OpenNetCF MUST be installed on the phone, not on storage card !

GPS never starts because it works at 38400 bps

Just the software I was after..Now if I could just get it to work! ;)

Im using an E200 with a Globalsat BT-308 and I cant get the gps to start, I have tried Com7 on all baud rates (should be 38400) but as soon as the status shows gps started it stops again and if I press start again the status shows starting and stays that way, I have to reboot the phone. I have tried all Com ports but none of them work, I get gps started on Com 1, 8 & 9 but no gps data is displayed.

What am I doing wrong? I have tried reonding but I dont think thats the issue, the gps unit worked fine with mapopolis and works pefectly with my pocketpc!!!!

I have the exact same problem except that im using a C500 and a tomtom gps unit. I have the french rom loaded - have had it application unlocked by orange, have used the free sim unlocking tools found elsewhere in these pages - so its not exactly a standard c500 anymore. i know that the gps unit is funciting because tomtom works perfectly.

Hope I do eventually figure out how to make it work.. it looks a great little app!

Hi,

just found this - looks good.

Is development still ongoing ?

What would be a really useful feature is the ability to see the distance you have travelled.

thx

Development is on hold for a bit while I finish some other projects. The problems people experience are becuase of the different bluetooth stacks available on phones and gpsr. Im looking at using a commercial component to handle the bluetooth comunication but of course that costs money.

Is this a project people would be willing to pay for, Im not sure?

Im sure Ill get some time next year to get it going again and hopefully integrate some geocaching functionaility

I for one would be willing to pay for it, could you fix it so it works on QVGA devices?
