    yea, i was too getting annoyed by the DSi questions over this, glad you pretty much re-said it again (With photos! xD).

    When I used google Maps myself, I was given a pretty much exact spot on my home, except by a few houses (Not across the street, just a few doors down), so maybe its less then a few meters of difference for the Google Maps? Or maybe its some query problem that Google has, and never can actually handle direct movements, I suppose. Or maybe its the area? Is your area a high-electro-magnetic area (A lot of power stations or stuff to that effect.), because that tends to be screwe up most maps and such.

    Maybe becuase Dsi has more ram? iono thats just a guess lol becuase thats why nds cant play gba games with just a slot1 cart lol (:

    This may be not very usefull but i think it can expand to more things like kinda like getting a tower for a computer lol its just a tower now you gotta add the screen and speakers lol (: Woop [​IMG]

    As neat as this project is (and it is very neat), I find it kind of pointless. It is attempting to fix a problem that doesn't exist. You can buy a car GPS for only a few dollars more than the cost of what they will have to sell this kit for. And it wouldn't be as clunky to use as this with plugin-packs and external antennas. Better accuracy and the interface would be better. I just can't see the commercial value in this. Neat project, but not commercially feasible.

    That's what I was wondering myself. If not directly through the developers software, someone would be able to make a homebrew that utilizes the gps hardware. A full geocaching app would be amazing, something maybe modeled after the iphone app? This would definitely get me to buy the hardware.

    This thing is really cool, actually...

    But it looks so bulky... I wouldn't want to carry that thing around with me...

    and lack of DSi support= fail, in my book.

    I'm interested to see how this thing turns out.

    the iphone 3G was accurate by 10 meters, the 3GS is around 1 meter pinpoint.

    GPS with mapping from google will only be effective if you have some internet connection surely - and when you're using GPS no doubt you'll be travelling so this is impossible.

    This means it'll either need to download all the maps before you use it, or connect to the internet by something other than WiFi.

    As much fun as the project is, unless it's going to get downloadable maps or incorporate BT to pair to a GPRS/3G mobile phone for downloading of maps on the fly, I don't really see the point apart from "let's see if we can do it"

    Aloha !

    Yes yes, this is an dinosuar-old-topic but I recently aquierd one of these Ranger GPS-thingies
    and altough it works on my PC, I would like to get it working on my NDS as well.
    But.... all the links I have found so far (even from the supporting software like mapThis! ) are dead.

    Does someone know where I could get the software to make this miracle work ?


    Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeers
