    Auto-start & Network based positioning

    Hi,

    Is it possible to create an auto-start application using pys60?

    Also, what is network-based positioning and is it possible to use it with pys60(if it is supported by phone)?

    Finally, can anyone explain in plain English how does it take to create a signed sis to be distributed to customers?

    Thanks in advance.....

    hello shalan

    one post and too many questions just kidding

    ya its very much possible to create Auto Start application in PyS60 you need to use the autostart option of ensymble check the ensymble docs for detail.

    if understand you exactly by network based positioning you can go through the Location module of Pys60 which gives information about cellid and all that.

    Regards,

    Re: Auto-start & Network based positioning

    Hi!

    Continuing on the network-based positioning question, the way a lot of mapping software work is based on triangulation. This is my understanding of the working of the principle. Please correct me if I am wrong :
    1. The phone recognizes the signal strength from the closest three
    2. The phone measures the signal strength of these towers
    3. Based on location of these towers, and signal strengths, the phone determines the position with respect to the towers
    4. Based on known tower locations, the position of the phone is determined.


    If the above is right, is there any way to access the signal strength and tower id's of the closes three (or more) towers, so that one can build more complicated applications?

    The 'location.sis' module gives only the tower id and signal strength of the active connection.

    Thanks

    Re: Auto-start & Network based positioning

    If I type

    >>> positioning.modules()

    I get

    [{'available': 0, 'id': 270526873, 'name': u'Bluetooth GPS'}, {'available': 1, '
    id': 270526858, 'name': u'Integrated GPS'}, {'available': 1, 'id': 270559509, 'n
    ame': u'Network based'}]

    Obviously, Network Based is listed. If I select it, I get no positioning info. However, using the same phone, if I use a 3rd party application and select Network Based for positioning I can see 3G Network activity and the application shows the correct position.

    So, my question: Is Network Based method supported? If not why it is listed when I call positioning.modules()? If it is supported why I cannot get position at all?

    Thanks.
