READ ME, immediate issues
1) the thumb button seems to get stuck. not like it is visible or not, it seems it causes the menus to keep scrolling non-stop. simply hit the button, but it is annoying.
2) NO BATTERY LIFE Two hours after removing from the power cable, it is down to 90% battery. I plan on buying the extended life battery. Just lke the iPod. do nothing and the iPod lasts for 14 hours of play. Frequently change songs? 3-4 hour life span.
3) GPS IS SLOW!!! Hey, standing in the middle of Hollywood showing off my new phone took 5 minutes to get a fix on my location. I tried this all over Los Angeles, and it was always the same. Sometimes it would say number of satellites: 8, 8!!! how can...
The Communications (COM) port is available, but no signal is being received. Make sure the GPS receiver is turned on and connected to the correct port.
HP IPAQ Quick GPS Connection
(I got it from HP Getting Started CD that came with my phone.)
Install the program.
Connect to the internet (via active sync, edge/gmrs, or wifi).
Run the program from Start->Settings->Connections->Quick GPS Connection and click on "download now".
This application downloads timely data about the GPS satellites that enables your GPS to find your location faster. I get my location on Pocket Streets within a few seconds.
