 Software for PalmOS and PocketPC devices

 Mapping & navigation of GPS data. Satellite tracking.

The following companies offer state of the art GPS mapping software for PalmOS and PocketPC


PocketSat+ is a full-featured satellite tracking application for Pocket PC devices. It is designed to be usable by both experienced satellite trackers as well as novices who are interested in knowing when they can simply look up and see satellites.

PocketSat+ can track any satellite, and can display real-time plots of multiple satellites on both Earth maps and Sky charts, as well as predict when satellites will pass overhead and potentially be visible.

Like PocketSat, its predecessor, PocketSat+ includes tools to predict when satellites in low-Earth orbits will pass overhead and potentially be visible. Unlike PocketSat, however, PocketSat+ can track any satellite, and can display real-time plots of multiple satellites on both Earth maps and Sky charts.



Features of PocketSat+ include:

Configurable to compute satellite visibility from any location on Earth.

Track and plot real-time positions of up to 9 satellites simultaneously.

Map view shows satellite position and orbit track on an Earth map.

Sky view shows satellite position and path in the Sky.

Flexible application clock can be set to any date and time as well as clock rate, allowing "what happens when…" experiments. You can make time stand still or even go backwards if you wish. A single button press restores the clock to current system time.

"Pass" mode allows pre-calculation of satellites that will pass over a particular location during a given time span, including filters for minimum altitude and whether or not a satellite is lit by the Sun.

Uses full SGP4 and SDP4 orbit propagation algorithms, allowing accurate tracking of any satellite.



Cetus GPS

Cetus GPS for Palm OS is intended for use by GIS surveyors, scientists, explorers and GPS enthusiasts who need to extend the features of their standard GPS equipment.

The navigation assistant provides instant access to your current position, course, speed, altitude, time and statistical information. The navigation assistant is a valuable supplement to the map and compass when driving, cycling or hiking in the outback.

A position database contains a set of positions each including a geographical location along with a description and data accuracy information. You can add new positions to the database and edit, delete, copy or export existing positions. Position accuracy is easily improved by using the averaging feature. The position databases are suitable for GIS field data collection.

The track logger stores position, altitude, speed, course, time and data accuracy information at a specified time interval or based on movements. It provides a opportunity of overlaying tracks on existing maps, calculating statistical data or reviewing interesting events of for instance a fligth, a sail or a drive.
