    Question GPS sync with PC

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know the secret to syncing the 8800 GPS to a PC or PDA application? For example, I would like to run Streets and Trips from my blue tooth enabled laptop (or connected via USB cable) using the GPS receiver on my 8800. I would think this would be possible. Anyone know how it is done?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I do not think that it is possible to use the device off of your blackberry. I would purchase one of the pucks and us it or just get one of the wired antennas for your laptop. If you get the puck you an also use it on your blackberry too.

    There is no secret as it cannot be done.

    Thanks for the input. That's a shame as I was hoping to take advantage of the "indoor" gps capabilities of the 8800 for PDA data collection programs. And it would have been an added plus to be able to use the GPS without having to carry an extra device.

    How can you use the puck on the BB? Through the mini usb port?
