Hello all

This is my first message to this wonderful group.
I am running Nokia 6670 with Holux M1000 BT receiver.

I had set my phone to synchronies with GPS. Yesterday, I replaced the phone battery and set the phone date and time to the default time. Later on when I connected the GPS and Lodestone, It showed 0 of 7 satellites. However it updated my phone Date / Time. Let me hasten to add my cell provider does not update date / time. Then, how did the phone get the correct time when it picked 0 satellites?

On the same topic, what are the different fields the satellite gives GPS info?

I have also seen that the Lat / Long info keeps changing even when I am stationary. This happened even though it had picked more than 7 satellites. When the point on earth keeps changing, then at what point of time can we take a view the position on earth is correct?

The other day I was cruising around 100 KMPH. However with 2 quick key presses, the speed varied from 70 Kmph to 90 Kmph. I suppose this module needs to be looked into.

The asterisk key gives the standard time, would it possible to give the local time, i.e. what the sun dial shows? It would be interesting for those interested in astrology. Probably Double asterisk key could be defined for that.

Would it be possible to give the high and low tide timings? When the sun and moon rises data is already available, it could be possible to compute this info too.

Would it be possible to drop a database and POI, there isn't any option to do that.

Best regards
Harish Kotian
