    Multiple applications accessing the GPS at the same time

    Advertisement



    One of the things I'd like to do is use bbTracker/Mobiletracker to track myself via GPS (just dump it into a KML file) *and* use Google Maps/WLS at the same time for geolocating myself. I tried this briefly over the weekend and ran into errors when two applications tried to contend with the GPS simultaneously.

    So, here are my questions:
    1) Is it possible for multiple applications to access the same device at the same time?
    2) If not, where would be the hangup? The OS? The device? Something else?

    In the interim, I'm going to bounce support to the makers of Spot and MobileTrack to see if it's doable.

    TIA, Nick

    It is possible - I've used both Google Maps and BlackBerry Maps at the same time. I guess the apps have to behave and not hog the GPS. You'll have to report the problem to bbTracker (since obviously Google Maps isn't the culprit!).
