A Couple of GPS Hacks via Software

Here are a couple of GPS hacks that I ran across via and thought might be useful if not just interesting to the group. The first is a location based browser plug-in called Geode, by Mozilla. Geode will let users to take advantage of location data embedded within a web page. Geode’s uses Skyhook’s Loki technology, which determines position base on what WiFi access points it sees just like the Eye-Fi.

It basically unlocks the hidden potential of your GPS so you can access the built-in functionality of a PDA as well as retaining the GPS software. This means you can play music, watch video, play games, read and write office documents, and many other things with the once single-purpose device.Originally written for Mio brand devices, it has been successfully used on a couple other brands. We’ve seen it on a Navigon 2100 using a modified install. This software can run directly off the SD card, so it can easily be updated or removed.

The fun part is fiddling with the scripts to get the newest releases to work on the Navigon and Magellan devices.Hope you enjoy these hacks surveyors!
