    Release FoxtrotGPS

    USB GPS setup should be quite similar to Bluetooth GPS, just skip all the rfcomm stuff and change the device GPSD uses to your GPS device (either in /etc/default/gpsd or manually on the command line: "gpsd /dev/ttyUSB0", for example). @everyone discussing Navit here: I'd really appreciate to...

    Release FoxtrotGPS

    Well, you could just zoom out to level 2 or 3 while connected to some wifi and let it load these zoom levels. Once they are in the cache, you should see those scaled up in the deeper zoom levels (maybe it doesn’t work at very deep levels (>10), but you can always zoom out to see the world map then).

    Release FoxtrotGPS

    The reason is simple: I didn’t know Viking! Initially, I wanted to use TangoGPS, but the version you get via opkg couldn't connect to gpsd somehow. So I wanted to compile the most recent version myself and noticed that TangoGPS was dead (website offline :( ) and found FoxtrotGPS as an...

    Release FoxtrotGPS

    All maps tiles you have downloaded while using the program will be stored in a local cache (appdata/Maps). These tiles are then available for offline use. If you are offline, and no map is available for a specific zoom level, the image for a lower zoom level is taken and scaled up (so you can...

    Release FoxtrotGPS

    Is "Auto download map tiles" activated in the Configuration screen? This was off by default in the first versions of the PND. Also, are you sure you are looking at the part of the map you have downloaded (esp. the right zoom level)? If you are sure you should see the maps, please take a look...

    Release FoxtrotGPS

    Hi again, i have just uploaded the new version (see the first post for the download link). Now libgps.so.19 is included in the PND, so it should start even without GPSD installed. All other libraries should be available in the default firmware. I hope it works now :) . I’m also thinking...

    Release FoxtrotGPS

    Thanks for testing! No, because GPSD needs a different setup for each GPS device. Also, the PND probably wouldn’t work for those people who have GPSD installed via opkg for other applications. Oh, sorry, I forgot that this library comes with GPSD. Maybe I can copy it to the PND to make it run...

    Release FoxtrotGPS

    Hello everyone, I have ported FoxtrotGPS (a fork of TangoGPS) to the Pandora. The PND works great for me, but as this is my first port, it would be nice if someone could verify that everything works correctly. If a working GPSD is installed, FoxtrotGPS should use it to display your current...
