Left on a smartphone, right on an iPaq 6515
And here is the program
>> DOWNLOAD VERSION 0.8 <<
Tested on WM2003SE/WM5.0
- View satellite activity
- Activate SBAS (WAAS/EGNOS)
- Send SiRF reset commands (Factory, Cold, Warm, Hot)
- Create NMEA log files
- Show GPS info like firmware version after reset commands are sent
- Turn on and off static navigation
- Postion marked on globe
- Standard deviation of position for last three minutes
Sewe reads and interprets NMEA sentences sent from the GPS.
This is only an ARM version. The WM device probably also needs to be application unlocked.
Copy the two files in the zip file to the same directory somewhere on your device. Start the executable file by using a file browser.
You need to first setup the connection to the GPS. Bluetooth must be enabled on your device to start with and the GPS need to be paired and assigned a serial port. Instructions for that can be found elsewhere in this forum. Note the serial port number assigned to the GPS.
Select the assigned serial port in Sewe either using left and right keys on the main screen. The serial port selected is shown in the red status text. Press enter to connect to the GPS. After a moment Sewe will start interpreting the NMEA sentences.
Another way to select serial port is to go to Menu/Settings where you can select port number and baud rate. Press return to go back to main screen and return again to connect.
Main screen features
The status message shows if Sewe is connected to the GPS. It also briefly shows the status after changes or commands are sent to the GPS. The text is red if not connected. When logging (L) is appended to the message.
Top left of the main screen contains navigation and GPS information:
DOP: dilution of position (number of satellites used for fix)
Q: fix quality (0 = invalid, 1 = GPS, 2 = DGPS (SBAS)) DT: time since last DGPS fix
DS: PRN of SBAS satellite (Garmin PRN of SBAS satellite)
T: latest time to last fix
Top right, 3D earth function
The top right shows a 3D rendering of the earth and satellites. Commands to move around the 3D view are:
5: zoom in
0: zoom out
1: increase earth rotation
2: decrease earth rotation
6: tilt upwards
9: tilt downwards
7: rotate left around your position
8: rotate right around your position
3: restore view to default
Bottom of main screen
The bottom of the screen shows a plot of the positions acquired over the last three minutes. Additional information is shown in the plot area:
h: the height in metres of the plot area (change with key up and down)
d: current standard deviation of plot points, only useful when GPS has been stationary for three minutes.
t: the latest time to last fix. The time from when the fix is lost (for example after sending a reset command) until it is acquired again.
--Specific WAAS Satellites
--Specific EGNOS Satellites
--Specific MTSAT Satellites
--Static nav on
--Static nav off
-Toggle log/Start log/Stop log
The GPS Info page is empty until you send a command to the GPS. I didn't want to send commands automatically as I have not found any commands that does not change settings in the GPS. Try to send a reset or SBAS command before you open the info page or when the info page is open. This is only tested to work with Globalsat BT-338.

They were added to track the TTF after a reset. You can convert with gpsbabel or online with gpsvisualizer.com.

In version 0.8 how many time will b the beta version without advise us that it's expired ?
Do you know what is the maximum size of the log ? I want to log for about 10 or 12 hours. (I want to track nmea sentences of a travel to tanzania)

Thanks, Martin, for such a speedy fix. I can confirm it works on my HP 6915. Top app.

Thanks!! ver 0.8 working great on my Moto Q. I've been searching with no luck for something since mine stopped working in April. Thanks again for the support. /Scott

Can't check myself as it was working fine on my PPC, but let me say thanks for looking into this, hopefully those who asked for the fix will drop a line too.

OK, version 0.8 can be downloaded from first page, I hope it will work for everyone.

Hi all, I haven't had time do work on this program for quite some time. I will have a look why the beta time out triggers and upload something new asap.
||Posted - 05 juil. 2007 : 14:14:45
Thanks for the quick reply. I am using an iPaq 6915. I wondered if it is to do with the fact that I ran an earlier version of the software before using the latest one.

I think swemartin had forgotten to change the rev number, so it says 0.6 instead of 0.7. Works fine on my Mio A701, not sure why it doesn't on Smartphones. Hopefully swemartin will pop in at some point to see if he can fix that, I'll drop him a line ;-)

Wow. Looks like this might have been just what I am looking for. I too get the beta version expired message. Funny that it says version 0.6 in the software even though I d/l version 0.7. Anyone got a working version?

It works with my QTEK9090 (0.7) on WM2003SE. Also on my SP5 with WM5.0 I only get a message the beta program has expired. This is 0.7 or 0.6 What's the latest?

Does it work with a iPaq hx4700, WM5, and a Globalsat SD-502 SD card type GPS? I had used some softwares to change some Sirf parameters and got stucked on Sirf mode. I changed to Sirf mode, changed the parameters and the GPS did not return to NMEA mode. Result: I had to send back my unit for repair. Will I have this risk with this utility?

Downloaded this program a month ago and it worked fine on my Moto Q. Tried to use it the other day and receive "Beta version expired". File installed is named sewe_0_7.exe dated 12/6/2006 along with libGLES_CM.dll dated 5/27/2005. Should this program still function?
