Hi, I have bought a GlobalSat BT-368i Bluetooth GPS receiver and is using it to replace a less-responsive GPS antenna that comes with my custom Dynavin D99-E39A unit for my BMW X5.
The GPSInfo works with the Android 2.2 that comes in the head unit. I can select the 368i receiver, check provider, and then check start GPS. The problem comes when I reboot Android OS and relaunch GPSInfo. Desspite the app remembers that "GPS start/stop" is checked, GPS doesn't actually start. Therefore everytime I start the car and therefore booting Android from scratch, I not only had to launch GPSInfo, but had to uncheck-then-recheck the "start/stop" in order to get GPS reading to start.
So there are two features that I have questions:
1. Automatic launch of the GPSInfo app upon booting up. The "Manage Application" shows the launch option for GPsInfo disabled. Can this be enabled so the app starts when Android OS has booted up?
2. Once GPSInfo is launched, if the "start/stop GPS" is checked and remembered, then it should automatically begin reading from the GPS receiver?
I don't know if this can/should be resolved at BlueGps4Droid code or in GPSInfo? Thoughts?
