GPS and compiling JAR for phone?

Hi, has anyone been able to get a GPS fix on A780? Are there any special settings required? I was not able to get the fix, and the radar symbol on top of the screen is still greyed out.

Another question on an unrelated topic -- have any of you guys been able to compile an application in Eclipse for cell phone using J2ME? That would be great if you could share instructions on how to do this, assuming that Motorola Toolkit and J2ME are installed.

There are instructions on the course home page on how to get an application compiled and running on the device. There is also sample code for GPS. Make sure you have included the appropriate permissions in your JAD file and that you run the app with the lock icon after installing your J2ME application.

I downloaded an GPS application, but it cannot detect GPS coordinates when I am outside for about 2 minutes. The radar icon on the menu bar is greyed out. GPS is enabled. However, it does not seem to be able to get a fix.

Does the GPS application you downloaded use JSR179 for location? There are many location APIs out there but 179 is the one that the phone supports.
