Magnalox releases updated GPS software for Pocket PC
Magnalox has released a new version of their loxtrax application, a general purpose Pocket PC application that reads data as sent from a GPS device (or a file) and displays it in various ways. The program displays tracks, Points Of Interest (POI), maps and other relevant informations.

The software runs on ARM V4 CPUs, as found in most modern Pocket PCs. It can take advantage of a VGA displays and works with both portrait and landscape orientation. To use loxtrax for navigational purposes, you will need a GPS device sending NMEA data to a Pocket PC.

The GPS receiver can be connected via cable, as a expansion card or wireless using Bluetooth. loxtrax recovers a broken bluetooth connection automatically when running on a Windows Mobile 2003 SE device. The software should be usable on integrated Pocket PC GPS as long as the GPS device sends data on a COM-port between 1 and 8.

The magnalox website offers downloads for registered users containing the track, POIs (which are derived from uploaded stories) and maps for each magnalog. A membership on magnalox is free and without obligations.

loxtrax is available in two editions, the standard edition accessible to everybody and the magnalox edition, which is only accessible and licensed to magnalox users which have published at least one magnalog. The only difference between the two flavours is, that the magnalox edition can display moving background maps.
