Just a note that EB v1.4 is now released, you can use it for your own test: The specified item was not found.
You wrote that you get only a timeout error, did you see anything strange in EB log?
You can try enabling all the logs option in the config.xml so that more information is printed in the log.
One option that you've is to debug your code on the actual device using Chrome DevTools and our Remote Debug inspector: Enterprise Browser 1.4
My understanding is that you're using the HTML5 geolocation API and not the RhoElements legacy GeoLocation API: Rhomobile | GeoLocation API
I think that some of the parameters in our config.xml are targeting this older API.
I have tried some things by myself and it works now.
Is there an Error in the Manual for the 9500-K Devices? The Manual states that i have to choose GPS Hardware Port to COM8. The correct Setting here (on my Scanner and 150 other Scanners where my .net app runs) is COM2.
if i set the Hardwareport to com2 and disable SUPL (and do some cold boots), GPS in EB 1.4 and the Demo App runs and gives me a GPS location.
Unfortunaly the Default (init from os image) for Softwareport is Com8 ? This prevents the Demo App and EB from running too.
Seems there is some work to do.
an option is to use a tool like remcapture, and apply the needed changes during boot time using a reg file in the /Application folder.
Here's a description on how you can use it:
Nice Tool, thanks for pointing.
