Current State Of Gps In Pdaxrom?
« on: June 27, 2007, 03:47:03 am »
Well, inevitably, school and work took up a lot of time the last few months, and my zaurus has been collecting dust... much to my dismay.

Well, the summer's here, and I have a lot of free time on my hands, and a girlfriend who absolutely loves to go for hikes (as do I, but I was too lazy to go out on my own). There's so much good hiking here in central Pennsylvania that I never knew about, and it's great to spend a day walking along the ridge of a mountaintop and stop and look at the incredible views.

Anyhoo, before I get too far off tangent: I need to know the latest in the state of GPS software under pdaXrom. I've searched a bit, but I can't seem to find more than some older info and lots of promise of running TomTom stuff under Angstrom. I don't really have the time to mess with Angstrom right now, but I can't wait to see how it progresses. I have a really old build of gpsdrive (from march 2005) that works, but is really old. I tried searching for new builds, but it seems like many of the feeds I've been using are old or non-working. Anyone know where I can grab the latest release?

Also, is there any new things I should know about regarding GPS under pdaXrom? I tried searching the forums, but I didn't turn up much. Thanks for all your help!

I am interested to know about this use for a Zaurus as well!
Gorgeous C860, 256 Sandisk SD, 1Gig Pretec 40x CF, PDAIR leather case & the really cool retractable iPDA USB sync/charge cable. Powered by PDAXROM BETA 1.

My wish - to have a Command & Conquer style game on my Z! (FREECNC!!!) Simcity 2000 would also be great.

gpsdrive works with pdaxii3 & outputs voice info if you have flite installed & an NMEA-based GPS receiver.  I used it in the car with a bluetooth CF card & bluetooth-based navman pocket gps receiver over the half term hols.  Sometimes the navman wouldn't pick up satellites, other times I drove for a couple of hundred km & it tracked perfectly.

I found it very useful just to see where I was on the journey, but my best gps receiver by far is still my spouse
