Talking Built-in Gps Hack:for Moto Q9c!

I SO THIS THREAD OVER AT SPRINTUSERS.COM AND WANTED TO SHARE WITH Q USERS:
He claims it works with google mobile maps, live seach etc. using the built-in GPS!
(I AM NOT TAKING CREDIT FOR THIS: JUST PASSING INFO ALONG): I suggest to backup your phone before trying this.

here are the instructions the SprintUser.com user wrote:

I'm going to list the GPS settings I changed and/or added in the registry to allow applications to use the internal GPS on COM1 (in my case). I had COM4 working at one point, but was messing around w/settings still and couldn't get it to work again. I read on one page that using COM 5/6 caused the battery to drain twice as fast, so I avoided those.

I'm not exactly sure which ones, or if all have to be changed to get this hack to work, but changing them all hasn't had any adverse effects to my knowledge. This information is a bunch of info I've gathered from many different sites RE: the intermediate GPS driver, WM6, and Smartphones in general.

A lot of GPS programs I downloaded would not recognize the internal GPS (hardware is probably too new), so this will fix it for some, but not all programs. If it works, then great, if not, oh well, we tried.

[HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver\Multiplexer\]
String name="DriverInterface"
String value="COM1:"

[HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver\Multiplexer\ActiveDevice\]
String name="DriverInterface"
String value="COM1:"
DWord name="Index"
DWord value="1"
String name="Prefix"
String value="COM"
(if you change the COM port #, I think you have to change the index to match: ie, com3 and index 3)

[HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\GPS Intermediate Driver\Drivers\GenericGPSDriver\]
String name="CommPort"
String value="GDD0:"
(I believe this is the internal GPS port; I think this is the default setting...just making sure that it still is. you can check to make sure the internal GPS/intermediate GPS driver are working by using WLS or GMM and selecting intermediate driver and seeing if you can get a fix)

Use GMM(google Mobile Maps) or WLS(Windows LIve Search) and try COM1 in the settings to see if you can still get GPS signal and location...

These programs I was able to get to see GPS on COM1:
Google Mobile Maps (2.0.0.11)
Windows Live Search (2.5.2859.37360)
gpsVP (0.3.7)
trackr! (0.9.10)
Sprint Navigation (1.0.13)(prolly uses intermediate GPS driver; worked before these edits and there are no settings in the program for GPS port...)

These programs I was NOT able to get to see GPS on COM1:
Efficasoft GPS Utilities (v2.0)
Nav4All (8.0.62)
Reperion (SF1.50)
Virtual Earth Mobile (1.71)


Let me know if anyone has any problems, can't get it to work; maybe I forgot some settings??? I have been messing w/the registry settings for a long time, so maybe I forgot one, it would just take too long to type all of them in right now

Peace be with you all.




and this the link to the thread:

Hope it works for someone...please post if it works for you or not.

Re: Built-in Gps Hack:for Moto Q9c!

confused

the second of the two methods, is the only one that kind of makes sense to me... do I have to create these things or just edit the registries, because 90% of that info is note in my Q9c???

Re: Built-in Gps Hack:for Moto Q9c!

Will these hacks get my q9c (alltel) to work with Google maps?!

Guess there is only one way to find out.

Re: Built-in Gps Hack:for Moto Q9c!

I have not tested this myself. I saw this post and thought someone here can benefit from this....i dont personally have or had this device. I guess the best thing is to follow the original thread at the bottom of my first post. they should have more answers for any of your questions.

Re: Built-in Gps Hack:for Moto Q9c!

I found on another site a quick fix for the Q9h...it may work for other Q9ers...download ATT navigator (assuming att service3/ sorry) and then install but never use it. BOOM ! GPS now works using intermediate driver on google maps. your welcome
