    Just a few questions regarding GPS...

    Anyway, Im due a mobile phone upgrade at the end of this month and I've seen this...

    https://shop.o2.co.uk/phone/specific...rbit_-_Sat_Nav

    Now, my question is: Could I get that and connect it to my Carputer and use its built in GPS and Wifi capabilities?

    It would be useful if it works as I wouldnt have to then purchase a seperate GPS and Wifi dongles.

    Any help?

    Cheers.

    He's talking about this one:
    https://shop.o2.co.uk/phone/O2/Xda_Orbit_-_Sat_Nav

    The answer: not without considerable effort

    It's a Winmobile device with built-in GPS and WiFi. In theory you could try to install GpsGate on the phone & PC and have the GPS serial port forwarded via WiFi UDP. This is assuming that the GPS is exposed as a serial port and not via some proprietary interface. I don't know how reliable GpsGate is in network situations..
