i have been using my GPS module with citymaps and also the olson car mount.
i always seem to have a problem that i cannot understand. whenever i plan my route and go along this route after a certain time an error appears and then the citymaps closes, until i restart the package.
sometimes i have to reset the phone and then launch citymaps.
this is very annoying as you can imagine you go along a route that you are unfamiliar with and then the only support you have goes aswell.
i sometimes think it is because the phone is on the car mount and sometimes going over bumps or something causes the phone problems :? .
if i remember correctly i think the error that comes up is "-18". i'll have to check though.
does this onyl happen to me or have other people had similiar problems and if so what shall i do.
Haven't seen this particular error before but I have seen a variety problems with CityMaps / GPS. Most likely culprit is software rather than hardware. Do you get the same problem with Route Planner? Suggestions, in order to try them if you haven't done so already:
1) City Maps (and RouteMaps) need a large chunk of RAM to work. Reboot and then use Switcher or similar to close all other apps before loading City Maps.
2) Re-install CityMaps
3) Re-install the maps
4) Format the communicator and reload all software
I have a 9210i and can run CityMaps and Route Planner simultaneously. There is not much room for anything else though.
i think i need to upgrade to the 9210i (or shall i just wait for the new communicator, the question is will the GPS module fit in the new communicator :roll: :roll: :roll: )
It's probably worth saying that I originally set all of this up on a 9210 and it worked OK, although I had the apps on MMC - I never tried them on C. I can't recall if I had both apps running simultaneously, but they certainly ran OK individually with the LAM-1 GPS.
