Open Route Service

I discovered an 'open' service that I did not know about yet: Open Route Service.   The site demonstrates the route calculation between two positions on the map.  I did not test it a lot, but I will likely look into it later.

If you test it more before I do, do not hesitate to leave a comment.

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.

AGPS in J2ME and Direct Upload to OSM

Given the feedback in the poll, I've given more priority to providing the AGPS upload functionality in J2ME and now I implemented a 'not yet gui friendly' version of direct upload to Open Street Map.

The AGPS upload (and download of the data from the web) should work, but I can't test it using a real internet connection (on the phone) and a real AGPS capable device, so any feedback of success or failure is welcome). You should use the latest version 0.3.XXX).

Holux GPS Tracker 007 (GR-515) and GPS Tracker 005 (GR-530)

Holux came out with two tracker devices that also have mobile network capability (GPS/GPRS).

One device is a watch (GPS Tracker 005) and the other is a module (GPS Tracker 007).

Both accept a SIM card and can actively upload the current GPS location to a server or send an SMS to another phone. they can also respond to an incoming call from an authorised phone (up to 4 or any phone) to provide the location.

Sourceforge has been unreachable for part of the day on June 6th, 2009.
This could be verified using DownForEveryOneOrJustMe.Com.

If you want to download BT747 explicitally, you can use one of the download mirror sites.
