    AJ, do you know anything about this Android not working with BT GPS devices?

    One small, but fatal flaw in the Joggler is lack of battery so no clock memory so I was thinking about using the GPS clock to get the time. Might have to ditch the BT GPS for a usb one though.

    Mine lags a little bit but compared to the 1.6 image its a lot better

    a clock sync app has been included to internet time sync, i spose you could use the GPS time too, small app would be needed
    not seen anything about BT GPS?
    Personally a small battery hack wouldnt go a miss

    but the battery would have to be able to keep it powered for days. I want a small battery but one that powers it during it's boot and shutdown etc - I plan to wire it into the central locking.

    Internet is okay but it means you need to connect in the car for the clock to be right.

    I think GPS time would be the most elegant. It is there and accurate.

    well as long as GPS drivers work etc, its a solution i think a back up battery is the best solution but until then...

    Been running all week, pretty stable have found however there are a few graphic issues and quite a lot of apps dont run up, possibly cpu type related
