Finally I found a good Java based GPS program that works really well on my phone.

Its named MobiTrackPRO and can be found here:
http://www.unteh.com/products/mobitrack/index.html

Its an older version there called MobiTrack but MobiTrackPRO is for K600, K750, W800 so its MobiTrackPRO I am talking about here.

I bought the program and have given it a testrun on my K750i and my girlfriends Nokia 6230i, works great with both.
I use a Holux GR-230 BT GPS receiver and that connects fine.
The program has lots of features like showing all GPS-Info, tracking, odometer, speed, trip and so on..

You can also load a map from your memory-card (need to be calibrated) and it will show you where you are on that map. We walk alot of trips in forest and I made a map for that area and it shows us where we are at all times. Really neat.

There is a free demo at their site there too.

Took some pics from my phone showing some of the screens:

wow that looks great...id love GPS on a phone!

Can you write up something a little more detailed about working with GPS on an SE?

How do you load the maps to memcard...specifically, where do you get the maps from? Does it take imports from Microsoft Trips & Streets or something?

How detailed can your maps get?
Can you do directions on it?

Yep, i've heared it before. You can use it with a program called Wayfinder, too. ;-)

@matthewf01
The program has a load function that gives you access to the rest of the phone. c:/ is phone and e:/ is memory card, from there you can load a map. You can use any map.. ie. if u have a paper map you can scan it as an image ie. *.jpg and use it on the phone. The easiest is to use OziExplorer:

http://www.oziexplorer.com/

It supports map's from that program directly and with OziExplorer you can import just about anything. It also supports waypoints and tracks in the same format that MobiTrackPRO can both import and export.

If you open a map over the area you want in Microsoft Trips & Streets you can copy and past it in a picture editing program and save it as a *.jpg file. Then you import it into OziExplorer and calibrate it and you get a *.map file. Then you transfer the picture and the map file to the phone and its ready for use.

But thank you for the info. Do you know if such systems as Route66 will work?

No, systems like Route 66 and TomTom will not work. I am not sure if its possible to write apps. that advanced in java and still runs fast enough for it. But I am sure we will see some solution for that soon.

Hello. I tried to purchase the MobiTrack at HandandGo, but they wanted to send it to my mobile. That means I have to purchace it every time I buy a new mobile. In this matter I was not able to send it to +47 (My provider) and it all wnt wrong. I did not get the program!! But they charge my VISA. DAMN!!So how did you purchase it Klorin?
It should be delivered as a program file, and not the same way they send you a ringtone. Or.....!?!?
