Older PDAs and car GPSes?

May 4, 2009 at 6:41 PM
Hi folks,

I have a totally tweaked car GPS (Magellan Roadmate 1200). I was searching for a GPS logging application for it. Do you think GPSTracka can run on it (Windows CE Core 5.0)?

In addition I have two PDAs (iPaq 3950 and Dell Axim X50V, with a BT GPS) but I'd rather use the car GPS (only one gadget to carry).

Thanks in advance,

Hi Arnaldo,

I've been told that it runs on some older PDAs (a few people emailed me, it worked for 3 people and didn't work for 1 person), but there's no guarantee.  You could always try it out and let me know if it works.  If it doesn't, just uninstall it.

Thank you, Mendhak, for the quick response! As far as I can see, there's no specific limitation for the software on older platforms like newer runtimes... I'll try it on my car GPS but I'm not sure it'll work because I messed up with the common installation protocol :)  It doesn't connect to Activesync and it doesn't recognize CAB files. But everything else is working... (if there's something left :))

Bye,

Arnaldo

Hi Asif,

thanks for your attention. Unfortunately my GPS (MRM1200) broke down
(it's completely bricked) and tomorrow I'm going to Canada where I'll
buy a new one...

Regards,

Arnaldo

Apologies for the delay, I was on vacation.

Once you get your GPX files out, you can view a path to it in many ways.  The simplest way is to use Live Maps. 

Go to http://maps.live.com

Collections > Open Your Collections > Import > (You might have to sign in) > And then browse to your GPX files.

It should then process and display a path for you.  Here are two examples I made using this technique:

Another way is to use http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/

Hope that helps, sorry to hear about your phone!
