Windows Phone 7 - First GPS Application : GPS Tuner
Posté le 22 février 2011 à 14:40:00 par gpspassion. EN - Windows Phone

Updated February 22nd, 2011
The platform that started it all for "GPS Assisted Road Navigation", i.e. PocketPC, Windows Mobile 2003, Windows Mobile 5, etc...was reborn last year as Windows Phone 7 (WP7) for smartphones. Unfortunately WP7 has little in common with previous versions and as a result none of the usual GPS applications run on it.

The first GPS application to be compatible with WP7 is gpstuner, an advanced outdoor navigation solution. It can use either Bing maps (street or satellite) or OSM Topo maps and lets you plan routes and record tracks. You can use the [TOPIC] GPS on WP7 (Windows Phone 7) ? topic in the "Smartphones and PDAs with built-in GPS" forums to discuss.

Updated October 27th, 2006 - As seen in our current poll, Windows Mobile remains a popular GPS Navigation platform in spite of the rise of the AIOs, with the PDA "flavour" coming out on top. The Smartphone "flavour" has gained a lot of traction though since it was launched at the end of...

... 2002 though as seen in this article and this will probably go a step further with the upcoming "Crossbow" platform, that may or may not be called WM5.0SE, WM5.5 or WM6.0 when it is released. In the meantime, you can catch an exclusive preview of what it has to offer. Enjoy !

Updated 09/17/05 - Two plus years since WM2003 was launched and previewed on GpsPasSion, but now it's time for WM5.0 or almost...since the planned upgrades for the iPaq 4700 and Looks 720 have apparently been postponed to 2006 and the only available "Windows Phone" is the JasJar (HTC Universal)....


In the meantime, you can follow these tips and experience WM5.0 for yourself by running the emulator provided by Microsoft. You will discover the new "GPS Server" that allows the GPS data to be shared across multiple programs, much like GPSGate does today, without the convenient data logger and simulator though.

It keeps getting better! I'm finding that one of my favorite navigation programs, Intellinav (OEM for Routis, MyNavigator and iGuidance), calculates routes about 5 (yes five) times faster under WM2003 ?!

No apparent change with TomTom Navigator, in fact there even seems to be a "bug" when you call the GPS screen. It corrupts "check boxes" in all other programs and requires a soft-reset to fix.

Having just experienced the speed of WM2003 on my trusty iPAQ 3970, I wanted to share the good news.

It seems WM2003 is a screamer!

So there you have it, the best kept secret on this release was the name change to Windows Mobile 2003 for PocketPC! Certainly makes sense when looking at the Microsoft OS line-up, Windows XP, Windows Server and Windows Mobile!

Biggest changes are "under the hood" with the base OS transition from Windows CE 3.0 to Windows CE 4.2. For details, check out the articles already online on, the Asus MyPal a620, PocketPC 2003 review on hardware analysis, on a Dell Axim updated to WM2003 on Aximsite, or on the new HP2215 on pdabuyersguide.

My goal is now to get a hold of a Windows Mobile 2003 equipped unit to test for GPS related compatibility. Microsoft has commented that compatibility should be "99%" across the board.

Just came across an interesting link to the Microsoft® PocketPC® Software 2003 Technology Guarantee Program, it seems you can find out whether you're entitled to an upgrade to Windows Mobile 2003.
