GoooooPS is a Java MIDlet that displays a position obtained from a GPS receiver on a Google Map Tile.
Sun's Wireless Toolkit, version 2.2
Antenna, version 0.9.13
Proguard, version 3.5
Ant, version 1.6.5
Configure the following settings in etc/goooops.properties:
gps.receiver.url: the connection string for your GPS device. The MIDlet doesn't attempt Bluetooth service-discovery because my device isn't discoverable. (Also in principle there is no reason which this has to be a Bluetooth URL: if your device is accessible over TCP/IP you could use a socket:// URL instead.)
gps.channels: the number of satellite signals your GPS device can receive simultaneously.
gps.midlet.maps: the directory on your MIDP device in which to store downloaded maps. (This implies you have JSR75, the file-connection API; if you do not, you must modify the MIDlet to use the RmsMapCache class instead of FileMapCache.)
gps.coordinate.mapper: the class which maps coordinates into, er, maps. (Currently only Googler2 makes sense, the original mapper no longer applying. Consider writing one for another map provider, or even Google's satellite images.)
The Ant-build-file, build.xml, assumes the existence of a package repository in which the above packages reside. The root of this repository is determined from the environment variable, PACKAGES. (It also contains targets for building various Personal Profile programs, which use the code here but are not released under an Open Source license.
