I have the latest version of Anquet running on an HTC-S710 Smartphone (Windows Mobile 6.0) with a GlobalSat BT-359W Bluetooth GPS Receiver.

My problem is:

While I can get a lock on the phone from the GPS fine, whatever I try, I cannot get the position icon displayed on the phone (I think the icon is called "SmallGeomRingRW.ico"). Waymarker icons show OK.

I have re-installed the software several times, resent the icons,
which all seem to be there in the Icons folder on the phone. I have the program in the main phone memory and all the maps on an SD
card.

At the moment to find my position I have to scroll off the screen, wait a few seconds and then the screen will centre on the correct location (I actually drew a red dot on the centre of a screen protector so I know where I am).

Any ideas would be appreciated. Anquet can't seem to solve it.

I contacted Anquet support because I had this problem on my Pocket PC and they suggested loading GPSGate - apparently some HTC phones with inbuilt GPS use a different encoding for the GPS signal - did this and it works!

All programs (A-Z, Anquet, MM, Co Pilot) can now use the in-built GPS without problems - and it seems to get a fix quicker. Not sure if this would work for an SP version.

There is a new beta version 6.2.7.0 of Anquet available (contact customer services for the link) which may help.

Funnily enough I must have read your post before and installed GPSGate a couple of days ago. However, it did not work. I will contact Anquet for a Beta Version though. Thanks for that.

The positioning icon still does not show on my HTC phone in the new Beta version.

The new version of Anquet 6.2.7.0 now works on my PPC (XDA Orbit 2) without using GPSGate, BUT it still won't display an icon on a WM6 non-touchscreen smartphone (HP iPaq 514).
