Is there anyone who succeded in running GpsMid in a JavaME on a PDA or smartphone based on Windows mobile? I tried this with phoneME on WM2003, but GpsMid 0.4.55 Hamburg shows only a black screen. --Stephan75 18:36, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

I am currently trying to get GpsMid working on my WinCE 4.2 core based SatNav. Unfortunately, I am seeing the same problems and the map won't draw. It turns out this is due to a problem with PhoneMEs math routines, but I am hoping to have a solution to it soon. --amm 14 February 2009

I should probably mention that this works now and one can get GpsMid to work on windows mobile and WinCE PDA/PNAs. The touchscreen capabilities have also improved quite a bit since last December, never the less j2me and windows mobile can, depending on the exact combination, still be a bit problematic though. --amm 11:33, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

How can one do this? I have a wince 5.0 core device where I'd like to use gpsmid, and there were some instructins in the gpsmid wiki at sourceforge for setting up a java KVM, but I can't find it anymore. --Jkp 09:43, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
To answer my own question, I downloaded phoneME Feature - MIDP rev19166 (zip) from and unzipped it to a memory card, and now gpsmid starts fine. Still have to figure out how to configure the serial port GPS receiver so gpsmid can find out and what to make with sound, now I get "Failed to create resource player for /in.amr: Player cannot be created for type audio/amr: Player cannot be created for type audio/amr" --Jkp 10:31, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
I got sound working, but now I'm having trouble with getting a GPS location feed. For details, see and --Jkp 20:41, 8 September 2009 (UTC)


Is it possible to use GpsMid on Symbian Phones with Nuance Talks Screenreader? Contact me for a license. --Lulu-Ann 10:54, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

This sounds like an interesting idea, but I don't have any experience with screenreaders and how one one interfaces with them, so I can't really comment if it is possible yet. But perhaps you could describe a bit more on what you had in mind and we can see if there is anything we can do and how feasible it would be. --amm 11:37, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
You don't need experience, all you need to do is close your eyes when testing your application with. If you work with Java ME TextBox that should work.
If you are working on Symbian OS see [1] for a free trial download.

no language wiki in the sourceforge

because don't find language in sourceforge wiki i mõdify the structure of the article and add many captures screenshorts and chapters about howto create custom boundingbox and perhaps style.
