Installing the SmartGPXAddOn
Download SmartGPXAddOn_S60_E_30.SIS from here and store it on your PC. Do not try to download the SmartGPXAddOn directly with your phone. This will not work!
The SmartGPXAddOn_S60_E_30.SIS MUST BE SIGNED before it can be installed. Follow the signing instructions.
Install the signed package on your device using the Nokia PC suite or your preferred installation tool. After the AddOn is installed, you will see some additional menu items in the SmartGPX Options menus.
I have changed the UIDs of the "SmartGPXAddOn" content to development UIDs (0xE0007D64, 0xE0007D67) to allow the package to be signed by everybody for his/her own device. This may cause problems with previously installed applications that use the same UIDs because they are not necessarily unique. I'll try to get this package Symbian Signed soon.
On S60 2nd edition the AddOn DLL and Server is included within the SmartGPX Package because no signing is required on Symbian OS before pre-version 9.
And what about Series 80 and UIQ3?
Series 80 has a Location API that can be used to connect to a GPS receiver and get the positon for "Find nearest", "Sort by Distance" and "Set My Location". It does not provide a Landmark API that can be used to share positions between application. I have to investigate what to do to add these features.
UIQ3 doesn't provide a Location API. I have to port my own NMEA parser and Bluetooth connector to get position data from a GPS receiver. This will take a longer time so don't expect GPS functionality in the UIQ3 version in the next months. UIQ3 doesn't have a Landmark API to share positions between applications.
The only way at the moment is to sign the AddOn manually using a developer certificate for a maximum of 10 IMEIs.
If you want to use the SmartGPXAddOn send an eMail with the IMEI of your device. I will collect the requests and try to create a signed SISX once a week.
