Hello All,

I don't know exactly, this is right place to post this query on this forum. Please Help me any body knows the solution.

My requirement is i have to access Physical position of the Mobile device using GPS. I have to achieve this by using J2ME application.

Is it possible to access the GPS location coordinates in J2ME application on Windows Mobile?

If yes, please let me know what are the changes i have to do on Windows Mobile?

If possible can you post the code?

My Environment is--
Mobile - ASUS
Version - Windows Mobile 6.0
Language - J2ME

Thanks in advance

But I will share that all the GPS devices I use today (currently using both Palm and WM devices) is as simple as opening a COM port and then parsing the stream of data. NMEA is a standard protocol, used by GPS receivers to transmit data to your application for parsing and use.

So that's it. Open port, read and parse. Done.

Hi Bob

Thanks for your reply.

Can you please specify any links to do the same thing that is opening port, parse and access the GPS points.

It is very helpful to me.

Thanks in advance

Try some googling now that you know it's NMEA protocol.
