IPAQ 5550

Recommended Posts

We got the app working great on an IPAQ 5550 and a Compact Flash GPSR today. You have to do the following:


1. Install the Compact Framework. Then do a soft reset.


2. Install the Wherigo app. We did this by copying the cab file to an SD card then clicking on the cab file in the Explorer on the IPAQ.


3. Slide the IPAQ into the CF sleeve and plug in the CF GPSR.


4. Do another soft reset of the unit.


5. After the soft reset, go outside where you have a good view of the constellations. Wait until the CF GPSR starts to blink while it's looking for satellites.


6. Once it's blinking good, fire up the Wherigo app. You'll have to wait a few minutes for the initial fix, but after that it gets hooked up with the sats pretty fast.


7. Be sure to close the cartridge, then save your progress. After that you can quit the Wherigo app. You'll then need to pop the CF GPSR out of the IPAQ since it will stay active and sucking power.


This process may seem involved, but it's not too hard at all and the unit works great and holds a fix no problem.
