Nokia E61 and GPS

I’ve just discovered something today, thanks to a user of J2memap: The nokia E61 support the JSR179, but does not have a built in GPS. So it can be only server side localisation. But you also have the ability to pair it with a GPS bluetooth device directly, so JSR179 implementation will use this informations…Smart approach! Unfortunatly the JSR179 provide more limited information than a full access to the GPS device, but that’s probably the price to pay for interoperability.

Ok, the E61 design could have been better, but the screen is really great, especially for this kind of application!
