nmea_info.py update [Dec. 3rd, 2007|10:24 pm]
I've been doing a little bit of work on nmea_info.py of late, but not much to show of it. I'm trying to make it work with the new positioning module that was introduced with S60 Python 1.4.0, but keep finding bugs in it. So, for now, you'll still need to use LocationRequestor if you want to make use of a built in GPS, but hopefully in a couple of months we can drop that requirement. For now, I've released v027 with the code in there, but disabled, in case anyone wants to see how it'll work in future. Oh, and there are a couple of other little bug fixes in there too.

Speaking of LocationRequestor, some people have been having issues with the download links not always working. If you want the version for Python 1.4.x, then the current direct download link is http://usa.dpeddi.com/locationrequestor_3rd_unsigned.sis

Also, a quick reminder on code signing for 3rd edition phones - S60 Python 1.4.x is signed with full permissions now, but that doesn't help all that much when using 3rd party code. You'll still need to get a devcert for your phone if you want to much of interest (eg access the internal GPS). Once you have your devcert, you need to sign (with the full permissions set) the LocationRequestor sis file, the S60 Python Scripting Shell (you need the _unsigned_freedevcert version), and the nmea_info sis file. Joy....
