In reply to G4OWG:
Well it’s funny you should say that Roger. I wrote something to play with the GPS in my E71. Getting the data from the GPS is trivial. I had it so it wrote the data to the SD card. Connecting to APRS-IS is trivial to. The only bits I never did was a dynamic posting routine, i.e. something that alters how often you send a posit depending on how far you’ve moved and the logon codes. You can connect to APRS-IS read only easily but to send data you need to logon differently and I never bothered with that. The main reason that maintaining a data connection and running the GPS eats the battery in no time on this phone.
Here’s something for you Roger to show the posits from MM, GM, 2M, GB and MB stations and works fine on my E71. I’ve not looked at OviMaps API to see what there is in there. You can see how trivial it is to receive posits on Symbian albeit with either 3g or Wifi connection.
HOST = 'mb7uxx.dns2go.com’
PORT = 10153
s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
data = s.recv(256)
– s.sendall(‘USER G4OWG PASS -1 VERS pyAPRS 0.1 FILTER B/MM*/GM*/2M*/MB*/GB*\r\n’)
– print “Can’t log on”
– data = s.recv(256)
– print repr(data)
(Replace the – with a tab as the reflector removes indenting)
