  • Resolution >= 320x240 pixel
  • Internal or external GPS receiver (GPS reciever with SiRF III chipset)

MontaPhone for your Mobile Telephone

Install the Montaphone application on your computer and then send it to your mobile telephone via bluetooth.  Your mobile telephone will give you prompts as to where you should save the application.  The functionality of the MontaPhone cannot be guaranteed on all mobile telephones due to specific device settings.

If your mobile telephone has an internal GPS receiver use MontaPhone.jar.  If you are using an external Bluetooth GPS receiver, use MontaPhoneBT.jar.  Some mobile telephones also need the .jad file.  The tourism offices in Schruns, Silbertal and Gaschurn have GPS receivers available for use.
