To celebrate our attendance at the Dinghy Show this weekend we have rolled out another release of Map My Tracks Mobile that improves our support for many Windows Mobile handsets.
This release, v1.1, helps to extend the range of compatible handsets that Map My Tracks supports. One of the key features added on this occasion is the addition of an onscreen QWERTY keyboard.
This provides an alternative way of entering text using an onscreen keypad instead of the handset’s numeric buttons. This is especially useful for users whose phones have QWERTY keypads. To launch the onscreen keypad, simply click the select button when highlighting a text field.
To further extend the range of phones that we can support a manual GPS setup has been added. On some phones, the Java is unable to connect to internal GPS hardware or external Bluetooth devices. This is most common on some Windows Mobile devices whose Java does not support the required APIs. To accommodate this we have introduces a manual setup within the GPS settings page that allows you to choose the COM port that the internal or Bluetooth GPS device is associated with.
Also in this version are a suite of improvements to the accuracy of information and data and a couple of bug fixes.
To make the most of these features grab the latest version from http://www.mapmytracks.com/install.
