Installing BT_J2ME (the mobile BT747)

Any phone not being too strict on 'security' with a CLDC 1.1 / MIDP 2.0 profile and JSR82 support (bluetooth library) should be able to run the J2ME version of BT747 (if the specification says MIDP2.0, it is probably OK. For a list of known phones, see further below (leave a message in the forum if your phone is not on the list). Here is a first throw at explaining how to get BT747 on your phone!

Translators Wanted

The Desktop version of BT747 can be easily translated in other languages. Even though I know four languages, this small list does not cover the entire world. In the mean time, thanks to volunteers, the development version has more or less complete implementations of the application in: - English, German, Dutch, French, Spanish, Chinese, Italian and Russian. If you are interested in helping out to translate BT747 to your language, let me know. No coding is needed - simple editing of a text file only (Bundle.properties in particular).


Sharing Your Tracks Without Uploading Your Data

Sharing your data without putting it on the web is very easy. The map just below is a small single file that you can send by e-mail to any of your friends - you can do it with any of your GPS data!


KML or KMZ

As of version 1.60.19, BT747 has support for KMZ output in its desktop and command line version.

Why now? What are the benefits?

Basically, a KMZ is a compressed version of KML. Everybody can build a KMZ file from a KML file:
1) 'zip' the KML file into a Zip Archive, and,
2) change the extension from '.zip' into '.kmz'.


Visiontac VGPS-900

Following some discussions on GpsPasSion I added compatiblity for the Visiontac VGPS-900 logger. The special feature of this logger is its capability to do voice recording. It also has some functions for car use.

The VGPS-900 is different from the other types of loggers in that it does not log to internal memory, but to an external memory card (microSDCard).
