Wherigo on wince GPS

Recommended Posts

If you have a GPS based on WinCE, the Groundspeak reader is generally unusable (.cab installation does not work in most of the cases).

 

BUT, you can use J2ME alternative :

 

- OpenWIG for the reader,

- PhoneMe for the J2ME VM

hi,

good job making it work

 

could you please write a simple step-by-step guide (or make a video) to installing the PhoneME software? i would link it from openwig's pages

 

also, there seemed to be some problems:

 

1. you never saved your GPS configuration. in the Options screen, you have to click "Menu" and then "Save" to save the settings.

then the GPS screen will show you "GPS: disconnected" and a "Connect" button.

 

2. it appeared that sometimes (often) when you clicked "Back" the application crashed.

this might be something similar to what is happening on some Samsung phones. i still don't know what is going on :e(

i tried installing the phoneME software on my PC, but it was very unreliable - as if the screen did not refresh properly. so i could not debug it

I wasn't able to get it going with PhoneME, which is why I switched to JBED (since NorthernPenguin got it working).

 

I'd also like to learn how you got it going with PhoneME. TIA!

thank you for the time you spent analyzing my video ! it was my first trials .... !

 

in the next days I will make a tutorial for the installation of phoneMe on my wince5 gps. however, phoneme does not work properly on my second wince4.2 gps. thus I am considering, as the pocket pc sw from Groundspeak does not work on both, to develop a dedicated Wherigo reader for wince, using a framework that works perfectly on those platforms : windev (see my web site geocachingce).

 

@matejcik : from your point of view, what is the best solution ?

 

develop a full sw with a lua parser included (as you done in java) ?

 

use the lua vm connected to a cartridge reader and parser sw ?

in this case how could I manage the first instruction of the lua script : require "Wherigo"

where can i cope with the Wherigo.lua ? i do not have it ... do you have a version ? should i develop an emulator ? do you know how the Groundspeak reader do ?

 

ps: send a mp when you will post your reply please
