    ahh well I found an article somewhere that the phone can be used as a modem even with the data plan not active. I tried that and it worked for me. Now I downloaded Mologogo and put it on the phone. When I went to run it, it wouldn't work. I get the error message of "VM Class Loading Error"

    Also how do I get DEN service? I have it setup to dial out on my computer using (i think) iden? not for sure, Im a newb at this stuff.

    Without reading for another hour... can I get an update on the overall bottom line on these phones...

    1. Does the I415 (which I have and use with Nextel Dashboard) support WiDEN?
    2. Does the I450 (is this avail still or is it replaced by the I455) support WiDEN?
    3. What are the download speeds no WiDEN VS WiDEN?
    4. What is the best way to connect these phones/software. (I use Nextel Dashboard)
    5. What needs to be done in RR - DFX skin to handle traffic cams hanging up?

    Thanks

    Greetings

    Thanks for making this very informative thread.
    I am going to get a boost mobile phone just for data now.

    I am a J2ME programmer, I make Java phone applets, called midlets.

    If a midlet can run while the phone is connected to the internet, then I am reasonably sure that the phone is acting as a bridge and forwarding packets to the internet from the host computer.
    If that is the case, I may be able to write a midlet (or just modify mologogo) that sends data directly to the host computer over tcpip.

    Also, I thought someone wrote that it is possible to use a cable to directly access the gps functionality of the i450, but that you couldn't connect to the internet while that is happening.
    Is there a seperate serial port for accessing the gps?

    When I get my phone I will report more...

    Mologogo is a Java app. It will run simultaneously with connected access to the net. I run mologogo for tracking while using the cable and phone to access the net.

    The serial port access is via the same cable connection that the USB uses, I believe. Thus, you cannot access the GPS in serial mode while using the USB cable. At least as far as I understand it.

    I have written a J2ME app for my MOTO phone to send GPS data, (among other bits of info from the phone) to my server. "Modify mologogo"... uh, good luck on that one! They arent going to provide you with source code... don't think!

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish? "forwarding packets to the internet from the host computer." Host computer meaning carPC?

    Oh, I thought that mologogo was an open source app, nevermind about modifying it.

    If you mentioned the program you wrote in this thread I must have missed it...
    May I have a link to it?

    I just thought it was inelegant to have a program on your phone posting your gps data to an external server, when you would probably want to access it on your carpc.

    It would simplify and probably speed things up if the phone could send data right to the car pc.

    If both the phone and the carpc have access to the internet, I am assuming that the phone is acting as a bridge, in that both the phone and the carpc would have the same ip address, since I doubt the phone is doing routing.
    If that is the case, it maybe be possible to communicate with the carpc directly from the phone.

    I agree it is inelegant. I now have two GPS devices in my car. One is the phone's GPS, which is used to send my position to the web server. The other is dedicated GPS for the car PC. Obviously, it works fine but is wasteful. It would save the cost of a GPS unit to use the phone's built in receiver (although I'm not sure how good it is, seems to be a little slow to lock unless the view is unobstructed).

    Hi guys

    The MIDP Java for the Motorola phone isnt open source, however they do offer the PHP example code for uploading the GPS data from the Mologogo MIDP app to your own web site or server. I think this is what Bugbyte is doing.

    I have never mentioned what I am working on until the last post here. This project started quite a while ago. After starting on a new carPC I have thought of many ways to incorporate this into my carpc project.

    Thats exactly where I DO want the data from my phone. The GPS data from the MOTO phone is to track my car... What if it's stolen?

    The GPS chip in the MOTO phone is not real accurate. Yes, its ok ,if you are in wide open areas, and its not bad weather... I would not depend on this to provide GPS data for your carPC NAV app. I have a Glogal Stat receiver with WAAS that is awesome... cost was around $45.00 -- Its the latest SirfIII chip, and I am very impressed so far.

    Dequeued : How much experience do you have with MIDP Java programming.. if I may ask?
