I’m new to this forum and need some help. I have an old HP iPAQ rx5915 with built in GPS (SiRFstarIII chipset). It runs on WM5. I don’t have money to upgrade to anything better but need a GPS now… I’ve searched the web for several days and was unable to find any information on this matter:
Is it possible to make my iPAQ 5915 to get satellites data over internet to get a quick GPS fix? I think it’s called Assisted GPS (AGPS) or QuickGPSfix ? I’ve tried an app called “QuickGPS Lite” at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=866641 but it didn’t do anything. I’ve tried to change folder for downloaded data in that program, but no luck. I have data plan on my phone and 5915 connects to it via Bluetooth. Without internet assistance the gps fix in very slow on 5915.
Is there ANY way to make my iPAQ 5915 download satellite data over the web?
I use it mostly for walking routs. I get out of, say, subway and need to get a fix fast, but I’m forced to wait few minutes for a fix. Sometimes even walking slows fix down. So I was hoping to get some better reception with an external antenna since quickFix is not available on iPaq 5915.
I see, well I'm afraid you're going to have to upgrade to a more modern design to get that type of guidance. Unfortunately GPS PDAs are no longer made so that will be a smartphone, iPhone/Android, take your pick!
