Feature suggestion: GPS fix quality

Hi all, I have a suggestion if I may, but to illustrate it I have a bit of a background story; Background Imagine that you have a nice PDA phone that has built-in GPS (or access to an external GPS receiver) and you use it to show your position on a map, you use this service to let your friends and f...

RE: HTC Universal & GPSGate success, TomTom 5 problems

I have tried update interval as 2 seconds in the past, and I currently keep it at 10 meters and both options still have the same problem.

I will try the update interval as 60 seconds for testing but that isn't what I need it to do :)

RE: HTC Universal & GPSGate success, TomTom 5 problems

Okay, the problem is still present in the new RC, 2.5.0.224, sorry for bad news Johan. I have double checked by testing with and without HTTP update output plugin, and as output plugin running on seperate instance, both the same problem; GPS data gets queued up and fed too slow to TomTom. I still th...

RE: Using Vodafone GPRS - Connection Error

Hi there gfl, As an ex-employee of Vodafone's 191 support line I may be able to help you as well. Looking into your problem and going on what you've provided, I would hedge a guess that your PDA isn't using the "internet" APN (Access Point Node). I personally use a WM5/6 PDA with GpsGate updating my...

RE: GUIDE: Password algorithm for GpsGate.com client

And the same code ported to JavaScript (only works in JavaScript ver 1.2 and later, IE5 / Firefox / Safari all seem to support it) with a working example. <html> <head> <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.2"> var charArray = new Array( '0', '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', '6', '7', '8', '9', ':', ';', '<', '=', ...

RE: GUIDE: Password algorithm for GpsGate.com client

This is the same function ported to PHP with a quick example: <?php $password="VGZtHKt"; function invertString($str) { for ($i=strlen($str) - 1; $i >= 0; $i--) { $char = substr($str, $i, 1); if (preg_match("/[0-9]/", $char) > 0) { $newStr = $newStr . chr(9-(ord($char) - ord("0")) + ord("0")); } else...

RE: HTC Universal & GPSGate success, TomTom 5 problems

I was toying with the settings and I found the cause and a workaround! The problem is caused by the HTTP update output plugin. If I remove that and let GPSgate do its thing, TomTom plays nice with it and it all works fine, the second I add the plugin back it starts to skip and become unreliable. Wor...

RE: HTC Universal & GPSGate success, TomTom 5 problems

Okay I gave that a try, it's still the same issue, I believe that TomTom and GPSGate are fighting for CPU resources. Maybe Johan could code in something to set GPSGate's priority slightly higher so it can process all the GPS data? Somehow I think TomTom would be more resistant to slower / less CPU r...

Originally posted by richardhula Working in the dark here as don't have WM6 device. Assuming the 5Hz issue is a dead end, it seems your problems are maybe caused by howl-round. This would explain the higher rate of NMEA transmissions. I should have said something, when 5Hz mode wasn't working I set ...

RE: HTC Universal & GPSGate success, TomTom 5 problems

The Windows GPS server is set to connect to the NMEA Filtered Virtual COM port in GPSGate, and TomTom is set to connect to the same port. TomTom is not connecting to the Windows GPS server.

RE: HTC Universal & GPSGate success, TomTom 5 problems

Bah its started doing it again Johan, I've tried everything I can think of now, using both a NMEA-filtered COM Port and a normal Virtual COM port, I sat down and studied the input for longer and found out that it's not just sending the data at a faster rate, it's somehow actually just skipping and t...

RE: HTC Universal & GPSGate success, TomTom 5 problems

As each GPS receiver is different, I don't think there is one set way to enable faster updates. For my model and a couple of others it requires sending some $PMTK* commands to the GPS receiver, and in some cases (including mine), a hardware hack (soldering in a resistor to enable transferring inform...

RE: HTC Universal & GPSGate success, TomTom 5 problems

Thankyou for your fast reply Johan. I honestly don't know whats enabling 5Hz mode, I'm thinking perhaps TomTom itself might do it, or maybe GPSTuner. I tried Theory A but it made no difference oddly. Theory B however worked well thankyou, but TomTom doesn't seem to get satellite strengths now (despi...
