Hi Everyone,

is it possible to build some pod to read the coordinates from a GPS module
on a WM5 device?
Irrespective whether its a builtin or a bluetooth GPS module, it would be
handy to get the coordinates read into the client for further processing by
the customer application.

thanks in advance for any help in this matter.

Certainly a POD can be created to do this. POD are used to extended the
application when you need to interact with OS specific extensions (like
this).

Hi Dave,

After the last Sybase Anywhere Tech Conference, I understand that much of
the functionality that customers want when iAnywhere recommend customers
combo M-Business Client with the Ultralite database and Mobilink is to do
things outside of the browser that ultimately results in developing a POD.

A list of common functionality such as GPS, camera access and wireless
printing support were some of the items on the list which iAnywhere would
investigate and determine the feasibility to developing support for specific
major hardware recommendations rather than every customer that needs to do
something to get iAnywhere in to investigate and develop something.

Has anything come of this?

Cheers,

Shao

You might want to take a look at the M-Business Anywhere section of the
CodeXchange.

https://ianywhere.codexchange.sybase.com/servlets/ProjectDocumentList?folderID=531&expandFolder=531&folderID=0

While there are not a lot of samples there now, this is a place where the
M-Business developer community can submit samples to be shared publicly.

What's SDN mean?

Sybase Download Name? My Sybase username is an email address. Is this what
should be used to register?
