My cell-phone should offer tracking information. by Philip Green[_3_]
I sometimes see TV programmes where we are told our cell-phones leave a trail of our movements. Does anybody here know of a cell-phone service provider who offers to sell you this information so that you can use it for yourself? I expect this would be very useful for people who need to keep track of their travel expenses.

Can you automatically send your gps position to a map server? by Kees
Logging a trip and publishing it while you travel sounds like too good to be true. It isn't! See how Pieter uses a PDA to send his position over GRPS (very cheap, 1 ct per waypoint) to the www.poi66.com map server: http://andro.poi66.com There are more possibilities such as electronic devices that could do the same. Also manually punching in the coordinates into a text message will work. More...

ASUS Mypal A 696 by Terry Metcalfe
I am using an Asus MyPal A696 to display Anquet maps (Ordnance Survey). Sometimes the position shown on the map is "lagged" by up to 100 metres. When I switch the machine off and then on again quickly, the position indicator quickly shows my correct position. Has any one experienced anything similar?

My Navman iCN330 is struggling to locate satellites, and when it has located them it sometimes loses the signals and has to start searching again. Is there a fix for this or should I bin it?

Bluetooth receiver recommendations by Jon
Hello, A relative of mine with a Nokia B95 8Gb would like to invest in a separate bluetooth receiver due to the unsatisfactory performance of the built in GPS. This will be used for Tomtom Mobile 6, not the Nokia Maps application. Can anyone make a recommendation so I know where to start looking? Budget around 45-50. --

Mounts for TomTom ONE XL by Dave D
The mount supplied with my TomTom One XL is too short for use on my windscreen and I am considering an alternative mounting system. Has anybody used one of these?

Problems with i-gotu GT-100 by Kilgore Trout[_2_]
This looked like the ideal gadget for me but I can't get it to work and wondered if anyone else who has one can tell me what if anything I am doing wrong. It may be the answer is "you bought an i-gotu GT-100" ... i-gotu number one would not work at all. Plugged it in to the USB port and nothing happened - computer couldn't see it at all. Went back to shop and got it replaced. i-gotu number...

TT1 wouldn't get a fix by Graham.[_2_]
For about 20 min around 0900UTC this morning my tomtom refused to get a fix. The weather was good and I was on the M6 Preston Bypass which AFAIK hasn't moved since it was built. Six good satellites were showing in the status screen. I tried re-planning the route, and switching it on and off several times but to no avail. A colleague who was driving in another part of the country at the same time...
