Using other apps while Pathaway in background

Postby Guest » Fri Nov 18, 2005 6:50 pm

Is it possible to leave Pathaway 3 running in the background (tracking), while I access other applications? For example, I may need to check my address book, or to take a picture with the Zire 72 built-in camera, and I don't want to interrupt the ongoing tracking.

RealPlayer, for example, runs in the background. I can start playing music, and then switch to other applications; the music keeps playing. Even if the screen goes off, the music continues. This is a nice feature.

Is it available with PathAway? This would be particularly interesting if you are tracking a long trip (say, 2 hours), when it is very probable that you will need your PDA for something else.

PathAway does not have the capability of running in the background on Palm OS. Only the Windows Mobile version allows running multiple apps at the same time. Some apps such as library drivers run in the background (such as media players), but there is no driver for PathAway to track in the background (yet).
