List of verified hardware

174 posts in this topic

After running a mini non-event with local cachers at my Wherigo last night, a few of them wanted a rundown on the known working hardware platforms. I searched through the messages on the board and came up with this list.

 

Feel free to reply with anything else that works.

 

Asus MyPal A639

AT&T 8525 with Windows Mobile 6 and a Bluetooth GPSr (i.Trek M7)

Dell Axim X3(Windows 03) connected to an Etrex Summit

Dell Axim X51v Pocket PC and Pharos Pocket GPS-360

Dopod 818 pro with either Garmin 10x or GlobalSat BT-338

Eten x500+

Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox T830 a smartphone running WM5

Garmin Colorado

Garmin iQue M4

Garmin iQue M5

Garmin Oregon

HP iPAQ 110/111 Classic (624 MHz PXA310) with a DeLorme BT-20 GPS

HP iPAQ 2210 +GPS HI-303CF

HP iPAQ 2795b and a Blue Next 905GR

HP iPAQ 3870 with a Pretec Compact GPS Low Power CF Card

HP iPAQ 3955 with the compact flash GlobalSat BC-337

HP iPAQ 4150 (Windows Mobile 2003) using the Garmin Mobile 10 Bluetooth GPS

HP iPAQ 4700 with GlobalSat BT GPSr

HP iPAQ 6815 with BT-GPS

HP iPAQ rx5915

HP iPAQ rx5935

HTC Touch Cruise

HTC TyTN with Navicore BT Mouse

I-Mate JasJam with a Holux external Bluetooth GPS

I-Mate PDA-N

Medion pocket pc, running windows 5.1

Mio A201

Mio P350 PDA

Mitac Mio 168

Mobile Crossing Waypoint 200 with a BT-GPS

Palm Treo 700WX phone (Windows Mobile 5) with the same Garmin Mobile 10

Pharos GPS 525+ which is a Windows Mobile 5.1 Pocket PC platform and built-in GPSr

Pharos Traveler GPS 525+ has a built in GPS

Verizon XV6700 using a Delorme BT-20 GPS

 

Choosing the right hardware at an affordable price seems to be a major barrier to entry for new folks. I lucked out and got a Garmin iQue M5 for $100 on craigslist.

Thanks Dave, I'm sure that many folks new to the Wherigo game will find this a valuable resource.

I just finished my first Wherigo using a Dell Axim x51 and a Garmin GPS 10x Receiver (bluetooth). I use the same setup with BackCountryNavigator for paperless geocaching.

It may also be a help to know of any machines on which Wherigo DOESNT work.

 

I wrote to the forum back in April 2008 about the problems that I was having with my new P3470 and contrary to the previous indications that the originators were watching all problem emails and would answer them, I didnt receive any help. Consequently, I havent tried any since. Shame.

Yes great Idea! But I agree with the last post, some claim to work but don't. Driving 200 miles to do a cartridge that works with a Colorado and not with an Oregon is a little - - frustrating. Has ANYBODY succesfully done a cartridge with an Oregon?

I was able to install and run the Wherigo player on a IPAQ rx1955 but I had to install .NET Compact Framework 3.5 Redistributable. The .NET Compact Framework 2.0 Redistributable did not work for some unknown reason. :laughing:

The CO is mine and is up to date on it's software, unknown on the Oregon.

Latest software upgrade on my Oregon 300. Worked great.

I see the HTC Touch Cruise (GSM) is listed, but not the HTC Touch Vogue (CDMA). I am happy to report it works just fine on the HTC Touch Vogue with the internal GPS, or a bluetooth one.

I haven't looked into OpenWIG yet, but perhaps there's a way to run it in the Java Runtime Environment on your laptop. That's currently the best possibility out there.

 

Check out the OpenWIG thread.

 

...if you have Linux, i can provide detailed instructions on how to run it.

if not ... well, i can provide detailed instructions for Linux and you can try and do something similar on Windows.

 

OTOH, perhaps windows j2me emulator can access "real" serial ports, and if that's the case, it would be trivial.

 

see also the thread about running the original PPC player in an emulated environment on laptop: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=187391

it looks like it would be harder to set up, but then you'd have the official player

:( Does not want to work on my Sonyericsson Xperia mobile phone running WM 6.1. The program opens, pauses for ages looking for the gps then crashes the phone. Have to remove battery or press the reset button to get device to work again.

Any Help would be appreciated.

yes, there is. but it's not official and there are still some quirks - your mileage may vary.

(but if you run into a problem, just let me know via the issue tracker or in this thread)

I successfully completed the Wherigo tutorial cartridge on my LG CT810 (INCITE) with Window Mobile 6.1 Professional. It took me a while to get it going using the internal GPS as ATT has this locked out for use with ATT Navigator only, but I got Fransen GPSGate and now I can run Garmin Mobile XT, Beeline GPS, and now the Wherigo player. The other quirk I had to work around for the Wherigo specifically is that it would not detect my virtual Comm port, it kept trying to force bluetooth even when i tried to manually set up the comm port. I ended up having to turn the bluetooth off and then it autoconnected just fine.

I have just loaded the Wherigo player onto my HTC Touch (P3450) and it appears to work with my BlueNext GPS Bluetooth receiver, though I haven't given it the proper test by actually doing a Wherigo cartridge. My nearest WIG appears to be about 29 miles away, so the full test will have to wait awhile! :laughing:

After installing the Wherigo player on my PPC, I decided to order a Bluetooth GPS. I just got my Bluetooth GPS today and I was able to complete the tutorial that came with the player. I am using a HP iPAQ 4155 with a GlobalSat BT-359 GPS.

Check the post by david loew regarding the config.config file.

Change the baud rate to 4800

Change the comm port to GPD1

and the Sprint Treo 800W should work.

Not familiar with the phone but if it is running WM6 Pro --

checkout the info above for the palm 800w and see if you have the config file located where it should be and if so how it is configured.

Check your phone for the GPS manager and see if it is not pointed to the GPD1 port (or something else) and try pointing the config file port to the same port. If you cant find the speed of your GPS then you may have to play with that. I do recommend that you sync your phone before you try anything in case it locks up and turns into a brick. Mine locked up (different phone) and had to hard boot it and reload everything. Just know how to do that before you start so if it happens you dont have a heart attack. (It can be fixed!)

I have a Pocket PC hp iPAQ h2200. I do not see this on your list of verified equipment. I am just getting started with the Wherigo. I have installed the latest version today. I have holux GPS attahed, which I find will work with the cachemate software on the unit.

 

I have tried starting the program with both the "primative compass" and the "where_I_go_tutorial". Each time the load icon briefly appears and then quickly goes away.

 

Do I have the right equipment?

 

I do have 64MB of ram

You may want to try a reboot before starting the player. I have to do that with mine in other to load the player. I also had to move the cartages to the memory card on the Pocket PC in order to free up some memory.

 

Did you install the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0 Redistributable Package?

I will try moving the cartridge to the memory card. I did not install the Microsoft.net Compact Framework 2.0...

 

So I assume that goes on the pocket PC? Because I started to do that and it appeard that it was going to install on my desktop computer.

It was the Compact Framework 2.0. Once I installed it everything is fine. Thanks for the help.

 

Now for some reason I cannot get it to see my SD card. So I will work on that now. But at least I can start playing Wherigo.

I am in the process of picking up a HTC Touch PRO™ through Sprint. Does anyone know if this unit has the ability to actually use the Wherigo player? I do know it comes with Windows Mobile 6.1.

 

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

It works on my default HTC Touch Pro. But... because of the high resolution of the phone... some parts of the text at the bottom line is hard to see. Only the upper half of the textline. But it's not a major problem for me... I found already 2 Wherigo's with it. I guess there will come an update in future for phone's with a higher resolution like this one.

 

(I am using an external GPS because the GPS inside isn't working well for me.)

Sorry, I'm not a wizz-kid. Suppose I have to forget about Wherigo's :D

Welcome to Wherigo, Jerry. Try looking at OpenWig (a Wherigo Player for J2ME phones). matejcik has done a great job opening Wherigo to more people.

 

(Edit: Denoted OpenWig is a Wherigo Player.)

It is mentioned in a couple of posts that the Nuvi 500 works, is it just the 500 or any models above 500? Is there something to look for that the 500 has that say the 200 doesn't?
