could someone give me a hint how to run GpsMid on Windows? My convertible notebook has a touch display and integrated gps.
there is the microemulator (www.microemu.org) which can run the midlet on windows, but I am not aware of any real GPS connetion there - try the OpenLAPI plugin.
Good luck, Billi25
If you can find a program like GpsPort for windows, perhaps you can use socket connection from GpsMid to a GpsPort -compatible server. I use this regularly on a WinCE device, works quite reliably, see https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/gpsmid/index.php?title=Platforms#WinCE_.2F_WindowsMobile for details.
I have tried this with microemulator and a bluetooth connection. I have an ordinary notebook without gps, but for nokia (or generally java enabled phones?) there is a program called ext gps which transmits gps signals over a bluetooth com port. This generally works, but microemulator seems not to be aware of this. It doesn't recognize this as bluetooth gps.
Apparently the current release version of microemulator doesn't have bluetooth support, but there's a snapshot version at http://snapshot.microemu.org/ at which bluetooth perhaps can be used with additional libraries.
got it working. GpsPort was a good hint but it does not run on "real" windows. I downloaded netcat for windows (http://www.securityfocus.com/tools/139) and used the following command:
type COM5 | nc -L -p 20175
So it takes the output of the gps on COM5 and feeds it to TCP Port 20175.
In GpsMid you can configure the gps url to: socket://127.0.0.1:20175
