Use GPS in Airplane Mode?

Is there a way to turn off both data and the phone radio but to keep the gps receiver on? I have seen the no data cab but if I turn off the phone it doesn't let the GPS work in TomTom or other programs I am trying to use that do not need an active connection. Thanks for any suggestions!

Re: Use GPS in Airplane Mode?

I just turned on airplane mode, and ran GPS location. after almost 20 seconds, no coordinates appeared, so I assumed it didn't work, but a few seconds later, the program showed my coordinates.

Also, a few weeks ago I was on a cruise, and although Verizon has cruise ship services (I got a text on my phone), I turned off my data, and ran TrackMe in offline mode. It did track parts of my location, until I was out of range for gps. In any case, try it. it works fine.

Oh, I also tried loading google maps out at sea so it can pick up the gps, but it errored (sp?) because it couldn't connect to data, so I guess it wouldn't load the coordinates either.

Re: Use GPS in Airplane Mode?

I have done this sort of things before.

Sometimes it work and sometimes doesnt. Usually when you are in flight you will lost your tracking. Maybe the plane is flying too fast.

I will work if you got a Bluetooth GPS with built in data ROM. Then load the ROM to Google Earth and it will plot it. But you cant see it real time obviously.

Re: Use GPS in Airplane Mode?

Ok just tried and GARMIN AND IGO8 both connect to satellites. Garmin only got 4 before I quit the program and IGO8 had 8... All I did was put it in airplane mode and started garmin first. After that connected, quit that, and started igo8 they both work.

Re: Use GPS in Airplane Mode?

Thanks for all of the help. I don't know what was up with mine but I re-ran quick gps to get updated coordinates before trying airplane mode again and you guys are right, it works! Now to go back my old TP and try this out (it may become my gps with igo.

Thanks again everyone.

Re: Use GPS in Airplane Mode?

It work for me if you get a BT GPS receiver with data memory in it.

Sit next to the window. You dont have to hold it to the window. Just put in your pocket and lean near the window.

When you get home, load it to your PC and use Google Earth and it will plot the path.

Re: Use GPS in Airplane Mode?

i did this once with my Mogul 6800, so I'm sure the TP2 will do it.

Was awesome on the plane. Fired up iGo and watched it trying to place me on roads and zinging all over the place up and down roads.
