Difficult with old device
Justin, here are the issues that I face using an old Verizon Pearl without any network connection:
I am able to use a Bluetooth GPS puck along with GPSed to keep the signal alive.
Everything worked great up until version 1.0.19, while keeping everything on an SD card. With the changes as of late, several things have broke and there is no remedy that removes all headaches. I am hoping you can help.
1.0.21 causes the java.lang.illegalArgument Exception: invalid character in name error, while 1.0.22 causes the Class 'net.rim.device.api.ui.decor.Border' not found error. From reading the sticky, I assume this is because the newest beta build (1.0.22) does not work with older devices.
Rolling back to 1.0.19 is the easiest solution and that is what I have done, but now another problem reveals itself. When using new course xml files, the <HoleNumber> element causes various problems, such as Not Set or No Par Data.
So currently, I either can't use any of the new course xml files, without removing all the <HoleNumber> elements. The only way around this I am assuming is if you can get 1.0.22 to work on older phones. I'm sure I can write a script to parse through the xml files and remove this element, but doubt others can do this.
I hope this helps. I can keep using the maps I have on SD card now, but updating from now on will be a pain. It looks like several others are having the same issues on the forum.
