    Accessing the COMPASS and GPS from j2me on Nokia 5140?

    Is it possible?

    Could we please have someone responsible in nokia saying if it's possible and how?

    Apparently, the 5140 does not include the JSR-179 (location) implementation.

    Please respond asap :-)

    As far as i know ...either the phone shud be supported by JSR 179 , which to my knowledge none is there at present..

    Also the other way is that the phone talks through bluetooth with some GPS receiver ... and gets the data ....

    Again u have to check whether the phone has a GPS receiver ...?

    I dont think it is possible at present as phones with such features are not available .....
    Also keen to get more info on same topic ......

    No bluetooth in 5140

    There is no bluetooth support in the 5140 (as far as I can tell from the menus) - the GPS is attaches by using an "XpressOn" cover (to be released soon by Nokia).

    The compass AND the GPS should be accessible from J2ME or they kinda render a bit useless (IMO).

    Could someone with knowledge please tell me/us if GPS/Compass info is accessible from J2ME?
