Mapopolis & Imagio

I apologize if this thread shows up twice. Bad storm and computer reset.

I used mapopolis with my old IPAQ Windows mobile device. Company no longer provides supports. I installed to my new Imagio. I need help, if possible to get the GPS device in the phone to work with the program. Program loads and I appear to see all menus of the past. However, I can't seem to activate (sync) the GPS with the program. Any out there that could provide some assistance would be appreciated.

Re: Mapopolis & Imagio

Sorry I can't help with Mapopolis. But I can suggest Bing as an alternative for a GPS since it now incorporates spoken turn by turn navigation.

Hope someone can help you with Mapo.

Good luck.

According to this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mapopolis it is no longer supported.

I agree with thepolishguy about Bing. It is a great app.

Just make sure your GPS is enabled.

Re: Mapopolis & Imagio

Mapopolis was great while it was supported. Regarding Bing. I assume it is not a free ware program? Can you provide a link? Please. thanks

It is free and definitely a program worth having on your phone. I have attached the cab to the end of this post.

Re: Mapopolis & Imagio

Thanks again ... and once again flawlessly. GPS working with Bing and so I really see little value in trying to get Mapopolis to work I have already spent too much valuable time on trying to get it to go. I have been around computers for years, but this is really the first phone of this sort. Imagio. I'm impressed! I really happy I didn't throw any more money HP's way with their Ipaq.

Re: Mapopolis & Imagio

More on the Mapopolis Map/GPS program

I guess everyone knows how frustrating it is to pay for something you really like and then to have something happen that prevents you from using it. There were so many nice features to this program before the company went out of business and would no longer support it.


Sooooo I am trying to see if I can somehow get it to work. Everything about the program seems to work ... detailed turn by turn directions on the maps, etc. I just can't get the GPS to sync with the software.

The following is the direction I received from their support when I first set Mapopolis up on my Ipaq. Can anyone in "the Imagio world" give me some pointers as to the advisability of trying or not trying any or all of the directions below to try and make the GPS on the device compatible with the Mapopolis program?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"The GPS on the HP69xx is set up to be managed automatically
by the Windows Mobile operating system. To allow Mapopolis to
"see" the GPS, you must disable Windows Mobile's automatic
management of it. Here's how to do it:

1 First get a registry editor for the PPC, such as
http://breaksoft.com/Blog/Utilities/...ry_Editor.aspx

2 Start the registery editor and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Control Panel\GPS Settings and change the value for the key "Hide" from 1 to 0

3 Reboot the device.

4 Now go to Start -> Settings -> System and you will see the GPS icon

5 In the GPS app, go to the last tab and uncheck "Let Windows Manage my GPS"

6 Under the Hardware tab note the COM port of your GPS

7 Start Mapopolis and go to Menu -> Settings -> GPS -> GPS
Communications

8 Set the COM port to the same port seen in the GPS applet (One user found his built-in GPS at COM 7)

9 Go to Menu -> GPS and tap "Start GPS"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~
Following these directions I got the program to work with the GPS on the old IPQ .... about three years ago. Any help here would be deeply appreciated.

Re: Mapopolis & Imagio

Well - I checked the registry and there is no entry for GPS where they were pointing you for your ipaq.

if you are wanting to explore your registry there is some free software to do that with...

I prefer Rescoe Explorer - but it is not a freebee.

Re: Mapopolis & Imagio

(M=mapopolis)

Thank you "the polish guy" ... So perhaps I am at a dead end again. Since "M" in the options calls for a port setting, I changed that within the "M" program itself to no avail. Well I have three classes to teach tomorrow and need to spend some time on that. Perhaps over the weekend coming up I'll have a little time to play with it.
