    Parallel access to BT LD-W3 GPS mouse

    Hi

    I just noticed that Raccoon can not access GPS mouse when the standard navigator application of E70 is running.
    Is simultanous access not possible in general?
    This would be a limitation in my view - i.e if running a navigator application and RaccoonOnMap in parallel, so people can track where you are when moving - this wouldn't be possible.

    I don't know, but I would not be that surprised if that turns out to be the case.

    True, but that's a problem that eventually will go away by itself.

    Namely, the navigator application is likely to use the GPS API of the phone, so there's a separate server that talks with the Bluetooth GPS device. Simultaneously there may be many other clients using that GPS API and they will all get location information. However, as it seems to be, no other client - like raccoonloc.py - can simultaneously connect directly to the GPS device.

    This problem will go away when raccoonloc.py also uses the GPS API for getting the location information, but that API is not yet available for Python scripts.

    Mhm, this seems to be true.
    I checked with a navigator application (Navigon) for Symbian and indeed Raaccoon looses connection to mouse once the application runs - then gains access back to the mouse afterwards.

    Thx for the explanation.
