I wanted to start using the GPS facilities on my FreeRunner but there is
a Catch 22 situation:
- If I am inside, there is too much concrete to get GPS signals
- If I am outside, I don't have a connection to download maps
I thought if I could get an external GPS antenna connected and lead it
outside to my balcony, I could get GPS reception while I was still
inside (it is not always convenient to go out to the balcony and use
WiFi). I assumed (!) the little antenna connection on the top right
edge of the freerunner was for a GPS antenna but when I went to buy one
the guy told me the connection is for a 3G antenna . . if I look at:
it seems to suggest that there IS an external connector for GPS?
Can someone clarify?
Also, using TangoGPS - how do you actually start the trip meter?
