Sirius Radio on your Smartphone.

Posted by , Jan 16 2006, 08:10 PM in Smartphone Experience

A member over at Hofo by the name of bitslap47 has rewritten the code for Sirus CE to work on Windows Mobile devices. I tried it out today and it is awesome, and its perfectly legal. You must have a subscription with Sirius Radio for this to work or you can sign up for a free 3 day trial here.

Expect more updates to this software to follow, and yes its the software is free.

.NET Compact Framework 2.0 is not required as orginally thought so if you have limited space on your phones memory, there is no need to install it. Also if you have a WM5 device, more than likely you have the 2.0 version already installed.


Download SiriusWM5.

Unzip the file and move the .exe file into any directory you want on your smartphone. I put mine in \Program Files\SiriusWM5\SiriusWM5.exe. Then I created a shortcut in put it in \Application Data\Start Menu

The program will create a .asx file to the channel you choose and play it in Windows Media Player 10 on your phone.

It is HIGHLY suggested that you have an unlimted data plan with your carrier since streaming media uses alot of data.


If your at home, connect your phone to ActiveSync and use pass-thru connection to listen to your fav. Sirius stations using your data connection on your computer.

BT ActiveSync and GPS at once

Posted by , Aug 22 2005, 02:45 PM in Smartphone Experience

Some of you may have noticed that when you do a BT ActiveSync and then try to connect to your GPS device that you get an error. Well the following is a fix for this thanks to ffaridi1 and biek over at HowardForums.

NOTE: You must have the Asian ROM's 3.45 or 3.46 installed on your phone.

1st: Delete all parings to all devices.

2nd: With a registry editor go to HKLU\Control Pannel\Bluetooth. Make sure the values in IsBthVCOMactive and IsBthCOMSetup are set to "0"

3rd: Now repair your devices, including your computer and your BT GPS device. Then go to Start, Settings, Bluetooth, Menu, COM ports and assign COM ports to your GPS device and your PC. Make sure they are different.

I would leave the one you have for the PC as it is and just assing COM 0 to your GPS device.

You should now be be able to BT ActiveSync and connect your GPS device via your favorite Mapping Software on your Smartphone.

The above set up is for the MPx 220 but should work the same on the Audiovox SMT 5600, I believe there is a menu in the Start Menu that says COM Ports, you would set your COM ports from there. Also, I am not sure if the same registry entries are in the SMT 5600. If you have any questions please ask them in the forums, the link is in the begianing of this post.
