Bluetooth GPS question

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know anything about the VisionTAC VGPS 500? I finally got the Wherigo player to recognize it thru bluetooth on my iPAQ 111. However, I cannot get any movement out of it in the game. I have tried a couple of anywhere cartridges just to test it out. They start up fine and when I look at the map there are objectives scattered around, but as I start walking, nothing moves. I do not know if the GPS is sensitive enough to see such small movement, however, I would assume that it should be because it says it is 5m accurate and it uses SIRF III. I have a green GPS signal in the game and there is a circle in the center of the map that fluctuates and gives different accuracy, but none of the targets move relative to that circle as I walk around.

I've read in some other forums about SiRF-equipped Bluetoot GPS receivers having a setting called Static Navigation where the GPSr won't calculate a new position if you are moving at slow (walking) speeds. Perhaps that is what is afflicting your GPS receiver. Have you tried running to see if the position updates?
