Greetings! I am trying to create a GPS tracking solution. However I seem to have a small problem with my receiver. No matter what I do it cannot find any satellites. Until I will be able to go with it to the store to get it replaced, I need to find out what receivers are the best when working with smartphones via bluetooth. I am using a SPV C600. I wrote an application that will enable the phone to read NMEA strings from the receiver. I need to see how those strings appear when using receivers with satellites found.

The application can be downloaded from here - http://www.fighterso...ile/mts_gps.zip

Follow these simple steps:
1. Extract anywhere on the phone.
2. Launch it and specify the OUTGOING port which is used to communicate with the GPS receiver.
3. Press Options - Start.

In the status area the logging started message will appear. Wait about 30 seconds and press Options - Stop. Exit the application and look in the root folder of your phone ( \ near Windows and Program Files) for gps_log.txt. Please send this file to [email protected]

Note that the application can be launched directly from Windows if you have .NET installed. You can also use pocket pcs. Thank you in advance for your help.

Have you had any response to this? I've got a web front end that will track my progress, but I need an app for my phone that will read lat/long from my GPS every hour (or whatever), and do a GET request to my server. I'm using Google Maps to plot my location. I'll give your software a shot later.

Cheers,
Andy
