      1. Note: this is old! Would you be able to provide me with instructions on how to map out a golf course?
        1. I have created a Video How to map out a course from your computer: How to Add a Golf Course to the Database. Please note you can also create a golf course on your handheld while you play (added in version 1.0.5).

      2. I get "This application requires the following module, which is not installed: net_rim_xml_org"
        1. You need to be running 4.3 HH code or higher because I use the XML APIs that are included in the 4.3 hh code.

      3. I get "GPS is not supported, that sucks! Try to Enable it?"
        1. Your handheld does not have GPS, or it is not enabled, or it is disabled via IT Policy. You should be using a 8820, 8330 or 8130. Maybe more that I' missing that have GPS. If you do then try to enable it within your options. If that does not work then contact your BESAdmin to see if it is disabled via IT Policy.

      4. I get "Failed to instantiate the LocationProvider object. That sucks!"
        1. If failed for some reason I dont know. It failed while trying to do GPS stuff.

Donations are an excellent way to get new features and bugs fixed added to the application. I started building this application for fun and would like to keep it free. Income generated by the banner ads is not always enough to cover the cost of maintaining the site, so donations help in a big way. Please consider making a donation or just click on one of the banner ads to help out. Thanks!
