Sounds like you downloaded the 4.2 one which won't work on a 7520.

Can you post something other then a jad file? I'm not familiar with installing that type of file? I don't have the RIM/SUN SDK? I will try it out for you...

Got it going, trying to enter info for a hole:
What format do you enter the lat/long info? For example:
55 1'21.18"N Lat and 55 13'15.93W Long?

It's just degrees....so 42.123456 lat -83.234

There's a setting in Google Earth to show this format. If you go to one of the hole screens, and wait for the gps to fire up(< 2min usually), you can then do Landmark Here from the menu and it will prepopulate the field with your current location.

Ok, got it all figured out...
However, I've noticed if I save a Landmark using 'Landmark Here', and then watch it for a bit, it has changed? Started at 0 yards when I saved it, then went to 11 yards (i didn't move)? If I leave the hole and come back its at 11 yards? Any ideas?

shrkinst,

When you get to the spot that you want to mark, wait a few seconds until the Hor/Ver #'s at the bottom are both 2 or under. These are your gps horizontal and vertical accuracy numbers in meters. You also want to see a number > 5 in Sats if possible. I find it usually starts around 6 then gets to 8 or 9 after my gps has been running a while.

If you mark a spot with the horizontal/vertical numbers under 2, your distances will be accurate to +/- 2 yards. Also, while your playing, when you get to your ball wait a second or 2 for those accuracy numbers to come down.

Hope this helps. I will try and put together a small manual when I get a chance now that it seems to work for more people...

Default bbGolf is Great!

I was thinking about writing my own Golf GPS application, but I'm glad I found this thread! I'm using the 8800 and have mapped a couple holes at my golf course (people were behind me so I couldn't do them all).

I noticed that sometimes when you save a position, it then starts saying that you are several yards away from that position even if you haven't moved. I assume that this is because the satellites may not have been correctly synched when I initally saved the postion. What are your thoughts?

Also, in response to the other suggestion about having a centralized course DB, I would like to offer to collaborate with you on such a project. I am not sure how you save course information into bbGolf, but I suggest that a standard XML format or something. I am new to BB programming, but I would like to help you extend the application into more of a GUI if you want.

Let me know what you think.

Jon,

You need to stand on the spot your entering for a couple of seconds before clicking 'landmark here'. Use 'hor' and 'ver' at the bottom for accuracy measurements. I find that you can usually get them to say 2 & 1 or 1 & 0 which should give you accuracy +/- 2 yards.

Right now, the targets are stored using the built in landmark store which is part of the gps implementation. It would be relatively easy to save them out to xml or another format. In fact the easiest way might be to use a website that allows upload/download.

I just uploaded a new version that uses a bigger white font for the hole screen, that seems to work better in sunlight...I'll post the source code on the site tomorrow, and if you have the time/inclination, you can add features....

It would absolutely rule to see this integrated with oobgolf: Main as they already have great support for blackberry score tracking via mobile.oobgolf.com all free.

They have some excellent charting abilities etc. I'd love to see an app like this help for tracking more stats (yardage of hits, etc.)

jon,

get anywhere with your ideas? I'd be willing to host a website that contained downloadable xml files for different courses. Did you mod his code at all?

Oh, knezek, thanks for this app. Works pretty good. I get what seems like a common problem in that when I click "landmark here" after waiting for <2 ver and hor accuracy, the yardage usually changes to 10 or 12. I have 8 sats at the time too. I'll then delete the landmark and create a new one from the same spot, wait a bit and again it'll be 7 or 8 off. Not sure what's happening but 10 yards is kinda big in golf.

But enough whining about it, I'm gonna give it a go this weekend. I used google earth to map out just the green fronts. We'll see how it goes

Jeremy

P.S. - First post!
