    Github has discontinued their file download service, so it not possible anymore to share new apk with them. I've made a new repository on bitbucket, where you'll be able to download all the apk: https://bitbucket.org/HvB/usbgps4droid Herbert ---------- Post added 30th April 2013 at 12:15 AM...

    It never occurred to me that someone could really want to do things like that. If you want, you can fill a bug using the github bugtracker on the github repository. I will eventually try to fix it, however it wont be a top priority. Herbert

    Good news ! It's an information which could be useful to other users. I haven't looked very deeply in the kernel code or Android source code myself (everything works without problems on all devices I can access). So were you able to use UsbGps ? And then which version are you using ? Herbert

    Here it is. With this new version (note that's still an early preliminary version) you will be able to specify the USB GPS connection speed and, eventually, to auto detect it. It should also, normally, better manage the USB connections. SiRF configuration has also been reactivated :) Herbert
