2012-07-04:
New release: version 0.11 is out.


v 0.11:
And again the update mechanism failed :badday: :badday: So I have created an update rapidly, but unfortunately you will have to download it by hand again... :oops1:

v 0.10:
A few weeks ago the last of the running servers went down. So action was needed to keep the ETEN GPS functionality alive! Of course you could do without, but who wants to wait for minutes to get a fix. I managed to set up a service to download the packed ephemeris file: http://nsdu.atwebpag...edephemeris.ee.
Thanks to wumn for giving the tip that the Mio service is up & running again. So at the moment there are 2 servers again that provide our packed ephemeris file. As long as Mio and my provider will keep the service in the air... :unsure: :unsure:


Happy path finding.

Original message:
Hi everyone,

Since January 10th the old "Satellite Data Update" tool stopped updating the satellite data.

DreW created a replacement tool at this forum and made the sources public. I have ported his sources to C# and I created an open source project for it on SourceForge: New Satellite Data Update. Here you can download my program as well.

I have the intention to add more functionality to the program, such as timers to automatically update the data and send notifications for more convenience for the user. I want to add the original options of the old Satellite Data Update and more...

I hope you will have a look at my project. And I look forward to getting feedback from you to improve the program.

Thanks to DreW for providing the VC++ sources!

Watch this topic if you want to be informed about new updates.

File or assembly name 'System.Windows.Forms, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=969DB8053D3322AC', or one of its dependencies, was not found.

Hi topper78,

It looks like you don't have the .NET Compact Framework 3.5 installed. You can download it here (or google Compact Framework 3.5).

Hey man! It's what we're looking for since old udate stopped working.
I wonder if any special settings needed to work with my ETEN X500 although I've just installed it and works just fine!!!

Thanks a lot Cyrus for your concern.
Actually, I'm from Greece and my device is a X500 ETEN Glofiish.
So, here are the available download locations:
-ephemeris.asus.com.tw/packedEphemeris.ee,
-service.mio-tech.com/eeservice/packedephemeris.ee,
-htcusainc.com/clm/packedEphemeris.ee,
-htctsvr.htc.com.tw/clm/packedEphemeris.ee
It seems they all work but how to confirm it?
I've cheked the link you proposed but I think I couldn't find any answer.
Any ideas, anyone?
Thanks.

Hi tasosuser,

In your first message, it wasn't clear to me that you still had questions. That's why I didn't respond. I guess I have to make the interface more obvious. You should do 3 things:
1. Open an internet connection (Wifi or ActiveSync). Otherwise a GPRS connection will be used.
2. Select the download location you prefer from the drop down menu.
3. Press the Download button. Now the .ee file will be downloaded from the location selected in the drop down list.
When you close the application, the selected download location will be remembered.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask.

It is clear to me now that any .ee file will "suit" my device.
No more questions then, my friend.
Much obliged for your interest.

Hi Cyrus,

Thanks for your quick reply. I have found the bug. Something about a registry key that didn't exist. I will upload a new file within an hour or two.

Thanks for your response.

Hi cabra246,

Have you tried the latest version (0.3)? And if so, could you explain to me what the error was? I am eager to fix it.

Do not try version 0.2, that one contains a bug.

avanzwol
