For example no bluetooth...

Actually the problem with Loadstone was that when a receiver provided more
than one RFCOMM channel it always chose tha last one. In my case it was
channel 3 which supplies Garmin proprietary binary data. The correct channel
is 1, which provides NMEA output. This was very quick to fix in the sources
and now Loadstone works with Garmin GLO. However I did this with the 2010
version of Loadstone, see below.

Thank you very much. The source is pretty much usable and has cool features!

However, I cannot compile it. I'm missing the Sensors Framework headers and
libraries from my SDK. These are needed by the 3rd edition compass version.

I believe those would be available in the tarball called
symbian_gnupoc-2012-07-17.tar.gz which is referred to by Loadstone's
"Compiling" file. This package of course is no more available from
loadstone-gps.com. Do you happen to have it somewhere or do you know which SDK
contains the Sensors framework API components?
