Version 1.1 Released July 9, 2004
The GPS Bluetooth driver for Palm OS is an extension for Intellisync
Mobile App Designer (also known as Pumatech Satellite Forms). It allows
you to develop applications for Palm OS with GPS functionality using
GPS receivers with Bluetooth Wireless Technology. Without the need for
establishing and maintaining the Bluetooth connection between a
Bluetooth equipped Palm OS device and a GPS Bluetooth receiver, the
developer can extend existing applications or develop new applications
which offer GPS navigation functionality to the user.
This driver offers all the required functionality for navigation
purposes using GPS Bluetooth receivers:
- Discover Bluetooth Devices from within your application
- Connect to selected Bluetooth GPS receiver
- Check the status of the Bluetooth connection and the GPS receiver
- Receive NMEA-0183 GPS data from the GPS device
- Extract required data from the received GPS data string
- Disconnect from Bluetooth device
A full featured sample application is included.

you can distribute the extension PRC files royalty-free with your app
