I am currently a C1000/Cacko user and I want to select the best ROM for GPS navigation with raster maps.
The reason why I want to switch is Qtopia. I just hate its lack of features and incompatibility with my desktop apps. To my dismay it is required by qpegps, which seems to be the only sane raster navigation app for Zaurus. http://qpegps.sourceforge.net/
What is really good in Cacko
1 it supports my 4Gb SD
2 it supports my Socket bluetooth card, bluetooth GPS and phone (with GUI)
3 it gives excellent control over power-saving features:
- downclocking is done with two clicks
- automatic suspend and screen-off is easily configurable
- autosuspend is automatically disabled if GPS app is on
- the screen is turned off when folded
- brightness control works well
This gives me about 12-13 hours of continuous track logging and instant map access on a single EA-BL11 battery.
Can current pdaXrom provide these 1-2-3 points?
Can any other X-based ROM be better in terms of longer battery life?
Is it possible to run qpegps in pdaXrom without perceivable performance loss?
This app loads large raster images and needs a lot of memory and a fullscreen mode to run properly.
