Visual GPS, Automapa, iGO 2006 plus - with these programs the iPAQ's GPS worked just fine.
Ok, I changed baud rate to 57600 and Google Maps is working now. But garmin XT still not found sattelites. Frankie, which gps program did you tried?
I don't understand what U R talking about. The GPS is working excellent ! I sometimes get an impression that it's better than Sirf Star III.
Could someone take some photos (indoor and outdoor) and put it somewhere :)? For example at http://www.imageshack.us
I have problems with Gps too. When I used Google Maps, the device answer was always “your GPS does not appear to be responding”. Then I installed Garmin XT. Application detects GPS on port 6 but it cant find satellites. I also use Franson gps gate(app found gps on port 6 again) but still not working. Can please some one tell me the right settings for GPSs to work with garmin and google maps.
Thanks s@m , thanks for the link... i searched the shop in google map and found saw the shop.. Looks very shoddy !!!! ;-)
Google maps is so amazing now...
To all of you who have bought this device: do you HAVE to use the stylus, or can you use the touchscreen only with fingers?
and could you please record a demo using this phone and some features and upload it on youtube, we would really appreciate it.
thanks in advance
I have had mine for a week now, great device it does feel a little funny in the hand. Big fan though
To nxEn: the device feels like plastic in hands because it is from genuine plastic (organic material, from derivatives of hydrocarbons).
For GPS problem, use Fransom GPSgate it should work ... if you don't know how to set it up , go to fransom website and there is manual instructions (make sure baud rate is 57600). I guess you are using this in USA or North America....let me know
To all of you already using the device - I read
on other forums that the device feels plastic-like in the hand, is that true?
I bought an Ipaq 614c yesterday and these are my first impressions after one day: The sound during calls is very good, in my opinion, it is loud and clear enough. But the ringing sound should be louder. The processor seem to be fast, but are some situations when the device is moving slow, especially when you open many applications. Camera is OK in indoor when is good light (better than other camera phones), but mediocre in low light. I didn’t try it yet outside or the video function. Wi-Fi and bluetooth are working properly. It is early to speak about the battery lie, but first impression is that it is not lasting much. But the main problem is GPS. There isn’t a button for enabling GPS. They say (in the user’s manual) that you must open your navigation software and then the GPS is enabled automatically. I couldn’t do this! When I used Google Maps, the device answer was always “your GPS does not appear to be responding”. The same answer when I used IGO software. I understood that is not only my problem. I called to HP to ask them for this problem and they said that will call me back when they have an answer. If anybody had a same problem and he fixed it, please help me!
Yes ... I am from Bulgaria and allready use this phone from 2-3 days. With iGO 2006 or iGO 8 works wery well. BT and WiFi works great. This ting is very fast ! Camera ... i usually don't use camera, but the quality of the pictures is good. Battery - no more than 2-3 days ... but i'm not sure, because when i install someting the phone start charging ... Micro SDHC... works great with HC cards. I'm with 4 GB class 6
sorry for my english
Of course you don't need to use any external GPS antenna. You just can do it in extremely hard environment (city jungle). Phone sound quality is great as well as the speaker's. The sound is loud and clear. No problems with WiFi and BT so far. I don't know about the range yet. I'll let you guys know about the battery life after a few days (I've got the iPAQ 2 days ago).
Greetings for all.
Good to know you finally got one. I've been waiting for it since ages.When you say that there is GPS antenna input, does it mean you need to connect a GPS antenna externally to use GPS ? I thought it has a built in GPS chip for navigation. Can you write a more detailed review on all the features, phone sound quality / clarity while talking, navigation wheel, ease of using the key pad, ring tone (is it loud enough), wifi (does it have a good range), battery life (how soon do u need to recharge it). Would appreciate to know your experience.
Sorry for the delay.
It does not have stereo speakers.
You have to use the mini USB headphones. Actually mini USB is the only hole in the device (not including the GPS antenna input).
The camera picture quality is superb.
Someone from Bulgaria also reported the availability of the iPAQ.
