Re: Ipaq Quick GPS connection file downloads

You may need to use the hard reset to make the quick gps connection working. but you will lost all ur program or data, including smart nav or tom tom. if you ready want to use the hard reset, remember to download smart nav or tomtom program. or you will end out no map in your system. good luck

Re: Ipaq Quick GPS connection file downloads

The sofware updates are available, but I believe that they may not be compatable with all versions of Global Locate's software. I am using V1.19. My unit works OK from about 12:00 till about 22:00 GMT but starting any GPS software outside of those times leads to dissappointment. I have not tried it but I believe that if I start say, Tom Tom at 21:00 and kept it running all would be OK, but I think that battery life would be compremised

You need to enable GPRS. Preferably the plan with unlimited download as the GPS file (4 files) need to be refreshed every 2 days. set it to automatic download.

Re: Ipaq Quick GPS connection file downloads

The GPS software was managed by Global Locate the company has been bought out by another manufacturer so the server and driver updates are no longer supported ! You'll just have to switch off the auto update feature !

GPS working intermittently


With ref to the downloaded files. There are 5 sets of files on the server.
2 Day
2 Day version 2
7 Day
7 Day Version 2
All of the above appear to be updated once per hour although none of them now seem to work for me with Global Locate's version 1.19 software. There is also a 10 day version which seems not to be updated any more. There are notes on the internet that explain how to edit the registry to make the software point to an appropriate area for the correct file. If you are pointing to the 10 day version it might be possible to point at the 2 or 7 day versions and recover the situation. There are only two lines to edit but bear in mind all the warnings about editing the registry

The ipaq 6515 has a microswitch that will turn off the pda if the battery cover is removed. When you remove the cover and try to turn it on even with the external power supply plugged in, the red led will light up.

Gps wont start


The ipaq requires a GPRS connection to download and refresh its GPS files every 2 days. Check the GPS symbol at the bottom right corner of the screen. It has to be blue. If it is grey, the GPS files need to be refreshed. Hp recommends MapAsia and it works, though the landmarks are not correct. The roads are ok. I do not know about diginav.
