GPS on Sony Ericsson w810i using a Bluetooth GPS receiver Holux GPSlim 236! I'm so glad to have found this program. Its available for FREE!! Its available at http://www.trekbuddy.net/ or the trekbuddy0.9.55 version is available at the further part of this article . This GPS software also works on most of the newer SE phones. like the k610, k618 and probably all the 176x220 resolution sony ericssons. Don't know if it works on the k800 series or not. As you can see from the picture, (click it and the picture enlarges) I just got it working, Its using the default world map now and lock is at KL.. No stupid GPRS fees like in the nokias.. It uses the BT gps receiver. It is going to be a sort of hassle to get the maps in, so i'm gonna look for some ready made maps. It seem the forum said it uses the oziexplorer type maps, prbbly a PNG or BMP or Jpeg. Have to check it out later.. But as for now, it displays basic location thru GPS coordinates, and travelling speed.. I've gotta find out later how to use this Java application for camping and stuff... try to find my way home in a new place or city,, something like that.. Possibilities are endless.. Now we've got BT GPS on mobiles. Java mobiles.. virtually every modern mobile can now utilize a BT GPS receiver. Functions i found out so far.. can speed, location, sms location, keep the backlight on, and still looking at how to load maps in.. I found out something new.. One of the most important things for me was to be able to use the phone as a backup GPS display for my holux GPSr. Because I'm the idiot who didn't read the manual, i just found out about this capability of the program by pressing the # key. Basically this feature works just like the Beeline GPS thingy.. No maps, just a plain screen where you can store a waypoint and the arrow points towards the waypoint. sorry for poor image.. i don't know how to get a screenshot from my phone. So even without maps, this program would be great for a walk in the jungle, sport fisherman looking for a fishing spot etc.. (never lose your way home) and a mobile is always hardier than a PDA. Maps would be a added cool factor but lack of routing makes it rather lacking.Anybody got the maps, please post a link at comments
