Default GPS APIs (JSR 179)

Please Login to Remove!


RIM 4.2.1 GPS JSR179


OK can anyone tell me what 4.0/4.1.X did not have that 4.2.1 implemented

from the press release
GPS APIs (JSR 179) that provide access to location information from local GPS chip or external GPS receiver connected over Bluetooth

So with 4.0/4.1 does mean that an gps chipped BB
could use the location apis to access the chip but not BT attached gps or that you could not use both ??

You could use built in gps with location api in 4.1, but not bluetooth w/location api. I believe you could still use the bluetooth gps, but had to write your own nmea parser....

Thanks a lot... I will try this out in a short while...

I just went through the code, I suppose this does the bluetooth connection also.
