How To: Configure GPS

GPS Registry Settings

There are certain registry settings that are necessary for the Assisted GPS to work.

I've compiled a CAB of these registry settings for each seperate carrier.

GPS Settings - Alltel
GPS Settings - Bell
GPS Settings - Telus
GPS Settings - Sprint

You should now follow the gpsOne Settings steps.

gpsOne Settings

1. Connect your Diamond to your computer with the usb cable. This is also an excellent time to back up anything, just in case.

2. We need to put the phone in diagnostic mode. This is done by running dmrouter.exe by dialing ##DIAG Send (##3424 Send), or ##DIAG# for Sprint.

3. Let windows install your new hardware. There will be two dialogs that come up. The first one should install after you click next. The next will require a file called qcmdmxp.sys and says it can't be found. As luck has it, your computer already has this file, and it's located here:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\.
Simply tell the wizard to look there, and it will show the file, click on it, and the installation will finish.

If you have Vista, try the drivers HERE

4. Install QPST if you haven't already.

5. Run the Service Programming program under the QPST start menu.

6. Double click on the little globe at the bottom right of your screen.

7. Click on Add New Port, and add COM# - USB/QC DIAGNOSTIC.
It should now show your Com Port and your phone WinCE (########)

8. Close the QPST Configuration window, and go back to the QPST Service Programming window.

9. The ######## from step 7, which is the same number in the ESN column, is your ESN! (in hex format). If you have your SPC already, keep going. Otherwise, scroll down and read the SPC section.

10. Click on your phone, and then click OK.

11. Your phone should now be automatically detected. If not select it to match the picture below, then click OK.


12. Click on Read From Phone and then enter your SPC and click OK.

13. Goto the gpsOne tab (you'll have to scroll to the right) and make your screen identical to this one, choosing the settings for your proper carrier below:

Code:
 
Alltel: 
PDE IP Address = 205.142.19.100
PDE Port Number = 8888
PDE Transport = IP
Position Calculation = Mobile
------------------------------------------------------------
Bell:
PDE IP Address: 206.47.201.75
PDE Port number: 8888
PDE Transport: IP
Position Calculation: Mobile
------------------------------------------------------------
Telus:
PDE IP Address = 216.198.139.92
PDE Port Number = 8889
PDE Transport = IP
Position Calculation = Mobile
------------------------------------------------------------
Sprint:
PDE IP Address = 68.28.31.49
PDE Port Number = 5017
PDE Transport = IP
Position Calculation = PDE
14. Click Write To Phone.

15. SOFT RESET (or turn your phone off and then back on).

16. Test your GPS (some good programs are below).

Finding Your SPC
Many people wonder how to find your SPC and what it is. It is your Service Programming Code (SPC) or Master Subsidy Lock Code (MSL Code). It is essentiall a code to allow you to access certain menus of your phone related to its setting.

Here are instructions on how to find it:

1. Find your ESN in hex. If you have it in decimal, use THIS to convert it. You want the pESN Hexadecimal: number.

2. Download PPST_KeyGen.dll and GetSPC.exe, and then transfer them to your phone.

3. Run GetSPC.exe on your phone.

4. Enter your hex ESN in the Input field.

5. Press Go.

6. Write down your SPC from the Output field.

7. Enjoy.

For Sprint Diamond Users.
Use CDMA Workshop and connect to the phone in diag mode.
Go to the "Security" Tab and hit "Read" SPC.
Select Universal Ram Method and Custom.
Address is: 018E:0190
Hit READ to find your SPC.

Thanks Blee0125!
GPS Programs

TomTom 7:
I've recompiled a TomTom7 cab to be more compatible with the Diamond. It has the GPS Registry.cab built into it, but if you already ran that cab it doesn't make a difference
The cab can be found HERE.

A cab without Server Settings is HERE

PM me for more information about TT7 and where to get maps.

Google Maps:
For those of you who haven't figure out that in order to download Google Maps you have to use Internet Explorer, it's available in cab form HERE.
All you have to do is install the cab, open Google Maps, press Menu > Use GPS.

Thanks to Ghettofreeryder (for the initial finding of this process), Juggalo_X (for the Vista Drivers) and all those who have contributed to this process.

If you like my tutorials and think I should continue writing them, please donate.
