BT747 "added" to Gentoo

If you have a Gentoo system, BT747 should be easier to install now.
A visit to http://packages.gentoo.org/package/sci-geosciences/bt747 indicates that Tupone Alfredo has set up the script for that.
It does install the 'stable version' so for the development version you need to use other methods.


More than 33% German visitors

You are more than 33% of German visitors to come to this site!

Great.

Since you are so numerous, I want to make a kind suggestion that 'each' of you can make a 'small' contribution. It should not take a lot of effort to share some experience regarding BT747 in one page (in German).
If every visitor would write one page, we would have something like 100 pages each day.

I can give editor rights to those that ask. It is also possible for me to put text that I receive in the right location. Use the contact form or the email in the 'About' of the application to leave a message.


Where can I buy a GPS logger?

I've seen on several forums the question 'Where can I buy XXX', where XXX is a GPS Logger. So I decided to make a list here of physical and internet locations where you can buy loggers. If you already bought one, you can help to complete the list.

A+ for the iBlue 747 A+

I received an iBlue 747 A+ sample today form Transystem. After unpacking I put it to the test.

I wanted to try the connection to BT747 as fast as possible, so I connected the device to my PC and tried to connect to the usual port. No success. I open the Configuration panel to go to the System control and to check the Hardware drivers. Nothing there either.
When switching on the iBlue747A+, windows detected a new device being connected to the computer. The previous version was detected even without switching the device on, but not so for the new device.


BT747 on iPhone - Getting Closer

The different iPhones do not have an official Java Virtual Machine (yet), but alternative solutions seem to become quite viable.

The most promising solution for BT747 is 'xmlvm' - a toolchain that translates Java (and some other languages) to an intermediate language 'xmlvm' - an xml description of the program. That description can then be translated to 'Objective C' - the language used for iPhone programming. Important parts of the iPhone library have been given a Java alternative which means the program with the iPhone look on a standard Java Virtual Machine (J2SE).

I've started setting up a project for that (http://www.bt747.org/node/164). More background is in the forums (http://www.bt747.org/node/112).
However, a volunteer is needed to do the real development. So if you feel like it, let me know.
