Problems with Omnia and Toshiba phones

Mar 16, 2010 at 3:12 PM

Hi all!

I have a serious problem with the latest GPS.NET version. It works fine on most phones, but users tell me, that they don't get any GPS signal on Samsung Omnia and Toshiba cell phones. Are there any special things to do?

This is how i start GPS.NET (code snipet). I am using the auto-detect mechanismn.

    private NmeaInterpreter m_GPSInterpreter;

    private PositionDetection()
            Devices.DeviceDetectionCompleted += new EventHandler(OnDeviceDetectionCompleted);

            m_GPSInterpreter = new NmeaInterpreter();
            m_GPSInterpreter.AllowAutomaticReconnection = true;
            m_GPSInterpreter.IsFixRequired = true;
			m_GPSInterpreter.PositionReceived += new EventHandler<PositionEventArgs>(OnGPSPositionReceived);
            m_GPSInterpreter.PositionChanged += new EventHandler<PositionEventArgs>(OnGPSPositionChanged);

            // Devices.BeginDetection();
            GeoFramework.Gps.Diagnostics.Run(new StreamWriter("Next2Me.GPS.txt"));

    void OnDeviceDetectionCompleted(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (Devices.IsDeviceDetected)
I hope you have any ideas how to use GPS.NET 3 on cell phones like Toshiba TG01 or Samsung Omnia. Or, perhaps you can tell me whats wrong with my code.
