Hi, Dont't worry too much about A-GPS. This is a technology "only" to speed up the time to first fix; after the receiver gets a fix then you can start working normally. GPS reveivers need to know where the sattelites are before being able to calculate the position; a device using SirfStarIII without...

Fixed: Download from Google Maps not working

Hello Scott,

I am not able to download map tiles from Google (ver 5.00.29). Internet connection is ok (for instance download from OpenStreetMap is working). It looks like Google changed something in the connection again.

Can you provide a fix, please?

Hello, Some time ago (aprox 1.5 years) I also had problems of loosing data with PathAway, at that time with version 4. There were mainly problems related with WM5. After upgrading to WM6 I got a much more stable platform. Anyway a backup is always a good practice, and I backup the PathAway databases...

Hello,

Sometimes I convert the KML files to GPX using the utility KML2GPX 1.2 by Derek Rosen (search in Google). Very easy to use in Windows XP and then PW5 imports the GPX files without any problem.

With this receiver M-1000, I had some trouble to use it with Tomtom software, and even some times it seemed to have some pauses tramitting data to Pathaway. After some googling, I found out a piece of software to handle some of device features, and it was interesting to find that the device can prov...

Keep direction when stopped

Hello Scott, When I used the receiver Holux GPSlim 236, based on a Sirf StarIII chipset, it used to have an internal setting for static navigation. With such setting enabled, the receiver could detect when I was stopped and therefore direction was "frozen". This was a convenient feature when I stopp...

Hello Scott, let me give one idea, may be for version 5. Open and select a menu item is not very pratical if you are driving a bicyclette or other vehicle with strong vibration. Yes, I can setup 4 hard buttons on my HTC TyTN but most times they are not enough. I noticed that a short screen tap event...

You can find in Mi4x4 a complete Portugal cartography originally calibrated for OziExplorer, more than 600 mlitary maps! It is possible to convert the .gif + .cal files into a calibrated PathAway map using OziMapConverter , but I found the result is not so precise as I am used to, at least for the m...

Writen messages/warnings for visual confirmation

Hello Scott, One idea is to use the temporary message window to display a text message for a warning or to confirm an action, in the same way you have it now to confirm a SMS sending after the comand "Send My Location".

Text labels for Tracks/Routes

Hello Scott,

I like the possibility to edit tracks and routes and assign names to some specific points.

That could be even more useful if there is an option to enable the display of Text Labels in the map for such labeled points.

Greetings,
D.P.
