1. What is the common language to write for a handheld gps? 2. How are they written to communicate with satellites? Generally speaking, in IT most devices are programmed to communicate with ground devices (on earth) but what methods are used to be able to communicate with satellites?

Hi folks, I've a quick question, I have developed an application that transmits coordinates from one device (Client A) to another (Client B) and gets the distance between both, I am using the distanceTo() to get the distance, this is calculated on Client B. However this is only called in the onLocationChanged in Client B, and the idea is that Client A will be roaming and Client B will be almost stationary. So checking the distance in Client B onLocationChanged isn't ideal. Is there a way to constantly call the distanceTo() method, if I put it in a while(true) loop, …

Hi all, My used Toyota came with an addzest multi-access dvd navigation system NAX010 series.The problem is that the DVD that accompanied the system-labeled road explorer dv6.0.

This brand new update to the ever popular TomTom for the iPhone app (which has featured in the Apple 'top grossing apps' list since it was first released 18 months ago) adds one highly requested feature: Map Share. Why the big hurrah over one additional feature? Simple, it's a hugely important part of the TomTom feature set and long overdue in iPhone form. What Map Share does, and does brilliantly it has to be said, is allow users of the iPhone app to make changes to their own maps as well as benefit from the changes and updates made by …

Others, apparently, want a satnav that imitates SpongeBob SquarePants for reasons which, to be frank, are completely beyond me. After all, I don't live in a pineapple under the sea.
