Hello , i have a Garmin Rino110 GPS device. now i want to connect it with the
Samsung X100/X600 which is capable of running .jad files.
Now my question are :

1)Is it possible to read the GPS co-ordinates from the GPS device in cell phone?
2)If yes,then which classes do i need to focus in J2ME ?

I would certainly appreciate if somebuddy sends me the proper running code for such purpose. Thanx in advance

Rizwan, it is possible to get GPS information from a Cell Phone. Here is an article from Sun.

From what I understand, the javax.microedition.location subtree define the classes/interfaces.
