GPSGO GPSMap-OS OSGridConv Craporola Forum Craporola Homepage
Free moving-map GPS tracker software for Pocket PC users.
The current development version of GPSGO is version 0.94, released 15 Jan 2010, available for download from the links below:
Version 0.94 for Pocket PC 2003 and Windows Mobile 5/6 (53KB)
Version 0.94 for Pocket PC 2002 (118KB)
There's no fancy installer - copy the .exe file to a folder on your Pocket PC and run it there. A good idea might be to copy it to \Windows\Start Menu\Programs for example.
Note that this is still a work in progress version and is not yet as polished as I would like, but it is functional and has been tested successfully in various locations around the World.
The C++ source code for GPSGO is freely available included with the GPSMap-OS source code bundle:
Microsoft embedded Visual C++ 4.0 Workspace (280KB)
To calibrate a map image you need to enter the WGS84 latitudes and longitudes of three (3) different points on the map. Click the map image at a known position to place the cursor on it, then select 'Map->Enter Calibration Point...' from the menu and enter the latitude/longitude of the selected point (which you could read from Google Earth for example). Repeat for the next two points anywhere on the map. There's a useful "Use GPS Position" button on the coordinate entry dialog to allow calibration by actually visiting a point on the map yourself and using your GPS to provide the coordinate fix.
For details of the other functions of the program please refer to the GPSMap-OS page.
If you try and like this program (or not) please let me know and encourage continued development and improvement. Feature requests and bug reports are always welcome.
