Manila Tab GPS Tracker Updated
XDA member xaoc747 presents a great work adding one more tab to Manila/Sense 2.5, a full GPS compass with many great features such as record and analysis of tracks, altimeter, G-Horizon (defines the angles, roll and differences with G-Sensor), added speed cams, and much more.
This complete new tab will let you take real advantage of your G-sensor and compass on your Windows Mobile device. WM 6.1 and up compatible, but make sure that you read all instructions before proceeding. You must disable Manila before installing.
Definitely a must have!
