Anyone know what the command for accessing the C3000 program area in write mode is ?

On the Cxxx models, you could do it. But not sure what needs to be different to do it on a C3000.

Hello all,

Just got an unofficial reply from our source in Japan that Sharp "may" have a new model out around end of November (Seamed quite confident).

No info on specs etc. what so ever. But if true, hopefully a bigger step up than the C760 to C860 update wink.gif

If they make this one with a Barbie Pink top (Wife called the C760 Barbie White), I'll kill them.

I should point out that when I have contacted these guys in the past following rumours, they have always dismissed them. So I reckon there is something to this one.

Besides which, not good for business telling everyone there may be a new model when you have existing stock, so not sure why I am telling you guys huh.gif

Oh, we have dropped the prices a little to compensate on the "Possible" new release. If it is Barbie pink, prices are going back up smile.gif

In case anyone is interested...

I've uploaded the binary an interim version of qpeGPS.

Not yet part of the official version (hopefully soon will be).

Adds option to use qpeGPS as a map viewer rather than just GPS. So you can use it without GPS connected etc.

See :

Just thought I'd mention that there is a new script on the qpeGPS maps forum.

Had a play with it and it makes it much simpler (for me anyway) to get a good set of maps for it including generating the maps.txt file entries and converting to ping etc.

Give it the scale and the limits and leave it to get the maps. (Be sensible, the whole of the USA at street level is not sensible)...

Well worth checking out. Especially if you need maps outside the US as well. Got some nice UK ones out.

Take a look here :


All that is needed now is for a few key features, and I will be quite happy with it. At least until someone actually brings out some route planning software.

If any coders are volanteering by the way, just need some options to allow :

Zoom in and out of maps (not just changing map scales, so you can better read detail etc.)

Allow navigation between maps independant of GPS. (Act like a map viewer, so you can plan your journey for example).

Loaned a C860 to "What Mobile" magazine to review (August Issue)

The review article itself is quite short, but they really liked it.
Got WhatMobile Editors choice.

They nicked the picture from somethere else though (it's a C760) so I guess they couldn't tell the difference either biggrin.gif

Love the the closing statement :

"But if you are a power user, who isn't afraid to be a little adventurous, this is the ultimate handheld to own".
