EX 430 Motogo GPS Development


This forum is maybe not the best place for a discussion like this (but, developers' is only about Android).



I have an EX430, Motogo! device.



The device, everyone says, have a GPS.



How can I program to use the GPS? (Or the best question is, can I program to use that?)



This site: http://www.mobilerated.com/motorola-ex430-specifications.html , and a few tests I did here, show me that the phone doesn't implement the JSR 179 (Location) or JSR 256 (Sensors).



I have a Java Google Maps on my phone, and it found where I was (the street). How did it do that?



Thank you for your attention, and perhaps someone can answer this question.

I would suggest you start with Motorola developer site, and if you can't find answer they have their own forums:

I wonder how you activate the GPS funcion too.



Also, anyone knows what's the purpose of the key located at the bottom right hand of the keyboard, the one next to the Google Search function?

Sorry, but what does "cellid" mean? How does that work? For the layman.



 



As for the button, I think I may have figured that out. When you're using the google type search box, for instance, it enables you to shift from letters to numbers and viceversa.
