Well, there is no PC version per say, but the J2ME version can be run in PC emulators, like Sun's WTK, mPowerPlayer or IBM's JVM. mPowerPlayer doesn't support stored maps, Sun's WTK may be slow with them (especially with multiple tiles per file), IBM's JVM should support stored maps (maybe with an additional library), but I haven't tested that yet.

Hi, I got MgMaps working with IBM's JVM.

http://www.mgmaps.com/weme/ibm-weme-win-x86-midp20_6.1.1.20061110-161633.exe

And the Additional Library for stored maps from:

http://service.boulder.ibm.com/ibmdl/pub/software/pervasive/updates/571/techs/features/com.ibm.weme.win32.x86.pdap-fc.runtime22_5.7.1/wsdd5.0.jar

Now all you need is the Bluetooth Library and anyone with a laptop can run MGMaps with tracking.

You don't need any additional bluetooth library. Just connect the GPS device to your computer and it should assign a virtual serial port for it. Then start WEME and MGMaps, configure MGMaps in WEME to connect to that serial port and it'll work, tried it myself! There's still a big problem... if you quit WEME with the GPS still set to serial, it will freeze when you start MGMaps the next time and you won't be able to make it work unless you uninstall and reinstall mgmaps... I'm working to find the problem in my code and fix it.

Didn't think of the serial Port option.

Just need to get the default IBM JVM Screen size larger and it would be great.

It's also a good way to check what maps you have downloaded.

Yep, it's actually the same thing with the IBM JVM on Windows Mobile PDAs and smartphones.

You're right, I searched through the files but couldn't find where is that size defined... But I found a solution - http://www.brianapps.net/sizer.html. I defined a custom size of 400x432 (seems to be about the maximum allowed by IBM's JVM) and I'm using it to resize the mgmaps window.

The path on the computer is ...\WTK251\appdb\DefaultColorPhone\filesystem\root1\MGMapsCache, so you should put in root1/MGMapsCache in MGMaps (the file separator seems to always be /).

It definitely works for me, both in Sun's WTK and in IBM's WEME - just that in WEME the application works once and crashes next time I start it, I need to disable GPS before quitting for it to work the next time. In Sun's WTK it always works fine.

Sorry.. I do see an error message in debug log : java.io.IOException, DESC: Error connecting to GPS, MSG: Error opening serial port; error code=2, (2) The system cannot find the file specified.

I can connect from other GPS applications to the same COM port, without any issues .

In IBM's WEME, you need to enter the port name in Windows style i.e. "COM7" (no quotes) for COM7. In Sun's WTK, enter it in UNIX style, that is 0-based port number, "6" (no quotes) for COM7.

Go to Edit/Preferences in KToolbar, or open the Preferences program from the start menu, then go to Security and select JTWI/trusted or MSA/manufacturer.

Umm... could be related to the bluetooth stack in windows (I'm just surprised the com number is so high). Anyway, with Sun's WTK you'd need to set the port as Custom and enter "40" for the port name. With IBM's JVM it should appear automatically in the list as "COM41" -- you need to connect to the port while WEME is turned off, then start WEME.

Newbie question hope you can help me. I don't have any bluetooth GPS, but am interested to try out the application on the laptop. When installing mgmaps_n95.jad (v1.38.01) in the WEME emulator, I have the error "The javax.microedition.io.Connector.bluetooth.client permission could not be granted for this MIDlet".

Do I need to configure anything else on the laptop? Or install another mgpmaps version to make this work?

Sure, you need to install the generic version, not the version for Nokia N95 Smile
