Great stuff

It is fascinating how someone puts so much effort and time into such a nice piece of software. I'm no programmer myself, but I did work in software testing some time ago, so I will try to help as best as I can.

My picture shows Ping, who likes to show me the way (sitting on a map). Holly (not shown, my Holux M241) later tells me where I actually was. Ping ususally disagrees ...

GPSLog Labs - Another site to share tracks

GPSLog Labs is another site where you can store your tracks that is well worth a visit.  It analyses your track to find positions where you stopped and splits the track in several subsections.

The site is pretty responsive too.

I added this to the list of sites where you can share your tracks.

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).
