delete memory gt-600

Asked by Timo Ullmann on 2013-04-15

Igotu2gpx identifies the gt-600 as gt-200e, I don't know if this matters?
Pushing the 'brush' button it's not possible to clean the memory. Is there a way to clean the memory of the gt-600?

As far as I know this does not matter. And no :-(.

There is a patch proposed to implement this: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~charlesf/igotu2gpx/gt600/revision/212.

With that patch I could successfully erase the memory of my GT-200e. I only did some rough testing, so there is no guarantee that there aren't any bad side effects (like bricking the device ;-) ).

Dear igotu2gpx folks

after having moved to ubuntu 13.04 igotu2gpx stopped working.

Firstly, there is an issue with marble;

marblevisualizer.cpp:158:13: Fehler: »class Marble::MarbleWidget« hat kein Element namens »addPlaceMarkFile«

This is apparently deprecated:

Deprecated:
Please use removeGeoData instead

Unfortunately I cannot do this :(

a make install does produce a binary that runs, however, I cannot connect, neither as user nor as root:

sudo igotu2gpx -v info
Downloading configuration...
Unable to download configuration from GPS tracker: Unable to connect via ''
also specifying the device (does exist in lsusb) does not help:
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 0df7:0900 Mobile Action Technology, Inc. MA i-gotU Travel Logger GPS
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 147e:2016 Upek Biometric Touchchip/Touchstrip Fingerprint Sensor
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0a5c:217f Broadcom Corp. Bluetooth Controller
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 04f2:b217 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd Lenovo Integrated Camera (0.3MP)
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0bdb:1911 Ericsson Business Mobile Networks BV
eg(eno,igotu2gpx-0.3.0): sudo igotu2gpx -v -d 0df7:0900 info
Downloading configuration...
Unable to download configuration from GPS tracker: Unable to connect via '0df7:0900'
eg(eno,igotu2gpx-0.3.0):

so, things rather bleak to me. It would be a real shame if igotu2gpx would go out of business.

maybe Michael or Timo has an idea (I would love to use his patch)

greetings

Eildert

ofcourse, I mean Christian's patch

Hi,

that's not my patch - I just referred to it. ;-)

Regarding your problem:
Unfortunately I haven't seen that kind of problem. The only problem I'm aware of: the tool needs write access to the according file in /dev/bus/usb/00x/00y. As a workaround, the ownership of that file could be changed or the permissions fixed. Executing the igotu tools as root works, too - so your problem seems to be different.

You could check:
- start with a fresh checkout (re-add the build fix) and rebuild it
- check, whether it was correctly built against either libusb10 or libusb (check output of qmake-qt4)
- if that's not the issue, strace the program with something like: "strace -f -o /tmp/igot2.txt bin/debug/igotu2gpx --action info --verbose"

If all of that doesn't enable you to check the patch to delete the memory, please open another discussion/bug for your new issue, that it doesn't work at all in ubuntu 13.04 - this discussion is for the memory issue.

Best regards,
Christian
