Security, GPS and Resolution Awareness Tools

Windows Mobile 6.5
4/8/2010

The Windows Mobile 6.5.3 DTK includes tools designed to help you create applications for Windows Mobile devices.

By default, the SDKs install the tools to <SYSTEM DRIVE:>\Program Files\Windows Mobile 6.5.3 DTK\Tools.

GPS-related tools help you create location-aware applications. For more information about using GPS, see Creating Applications that Utilize GPS.

Tool Description

FakeGPS

By using FakeGPS, you can use the GPS API to write applications that receive data even if there is no GPS receiver on the device. The application reads GPS data from NMEA .txt files installed by default to \Program Files\FakeGPS\GPSFiles.

FakeGPS must run in privileged mode because FakeGPS interacts with the GPS intermediate driver and writes to the privileged area of the registry.

FakeGPS ships with the following sample data files that install by default to <SYSTEM DRIVE:>\Program Files\Windows Mobile 6.5.3 DTK\Tools\GPS:

  • dixies.txt: NMEA file that immediately starts sending a GPS location to the GPS driver.
  • fakegpsdata.txt: NMEA file that contains the same information as dixies.txt but does not immediately report a new GPS location to the DPS driver.

GPSSettings.exe

With GPSSettings.exe, on Windows Mobile Standard you can configure the GPS intermediate driver in the same way that you configure the GPS intermediate driver by using the GPS settings utility built into Windows Mobile Professional and Windows Mobile Classic.

For information about using this tool, see Configuring Your Device to Use GPS.

Windows Mobile devices have various screen resolutions and orientations. The following tools help an application take advantage of larger screen sizes. For information about multiple display formats, see the topic Best Practices for Windows Mobile Application Compatibility.

Tool Description

SetDPI.exe

Sets the DPI of a bitmap (.bmp) file.

Usage: setdpi <filename>.bmp <dpi>
