Don't see your device in the table above?

Just because it's not listed here, doesn't mean it doesn't already work or can't be made to work. Is it a Windows Mobile device? If so, send us mail with the name of your device. These phones are being resold under different names all the time, and it's difficult to keep track of them all here.

Software Requirements

Depending on what devices you're developing for, you'll need at least one of the following SDKs. However, if you're working on POLS itself or intend to build it from source, you'll need all 3 of these SDKs.

Cell Data

During the development of POLS, a large set of cell data for the Seattle Metro area was collected. The map below shows the coverage area. The combination of this data and the POLS software give a complete working location system within the coverage area. The cell data available for download under the POLS Privacy License.


POLS v1.0 only supports the HTC Typhoon series phones, and thus, has no WiFi support.
