Tanogps uses gpsd, so this could not be the problem. But now i tried by accident (opkg update downgraded navit r2797 to shr-u version r2735) the navit version in the shr repository (r2735) and this version works and connects to the gps without problems. I also can see my correct position on the map. So it seems that the precompiled binaries from the navit homepage for the openmoko are not compatible with current shr-u. Tomorrow i will try to contact someone from the navit projects and say this so maybe we can find out where the problem lies. Because i like to have the newest one and not the one from the shr-u repository. :) Ciao, Rainer _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
