It was a one time pairing and linking...So when ever I launch CoPilot and press the Bluetooth button, as long as my
Holux Bluetooth external GPS is switched on, I got instant GPS for the Archos in a few seconds.
I am paired but is there a bluetooth
button in the actual copilot application? I can't find one. Or do you start Co-Pilot and then go turn on the bluethooth settings in the device?
Rap, here is a 2 minute speed tutorial on how to get a CoPilot Live 8 GPS
app working on the Archos 43.. will add pics later today or tomorrow after work.
1. Update your Archos 43 to Android 2.2, either OTA or via the website. Now buy a legit copy of CoPilot Live 8 (link to the store is above this thread). Do not obtain a pirate torrent version, otherwise it will mess up your Achos 43 permanently and make it hard to install a legit version afterwards (got a friend who did that and I cannot help him). ┬ú30 for a legit copy is peanuts, considering you coughed up ┬ú190 to buy the Archos 43 itself.
2. Pair your external Bluetooth
device with your Archos. To do this go to settings. Press "Wireless & Networks" Press "Bluetooth
" which turns on Bluetooth
. Now press "Bluetooth
settings" Switch on your Bluetooth
device and wait for it to pick up satellites (consult the manual on how to do this). For the Holux M100 GPs
device (recommended, ┬ú45) when it picks up GPS
satellites it will begin to flash blue. Now "Click on "Scan for devices" and pair your Archos with your Bluetooth
device. For most devices, the password is 0000
3. Once pairing is confirmed, exit Bluetooth
settings, exit Wireless & Networks settings. Now click on "Location and Security settings" if you have updated to 2.2, you will see an option called "Select a Bluetooth GPS
" Click on it. Now click on the name of your Bluetooth
device from the list. If you do not see yours listed, you have not paired your GPS
device wit the Archos 43 properly, so go back to step 2. If you do see your paired Bluetooth
device listed click on it. It will now exit.
4. Press the home button below and go to where you have the Copilot Live 8 Button. Once the GPs
app launches, your will see a cute satellite icon above right showing bars, indicating your Archos 43 is receiving GPS
signals. This means you are now good to go and ready to Rock n Roll!
If anyone has problems still, let me know.
Well well well....seems Archos 43 rocks after all!
Now back to the real world of low memory warnings
