» LocationAware Description
Location Aware is an automatic volume profile switcher.
This application works out of the data received from GSM signals.(NO CDMA)
so almost all windows mobile devices can use it.I developed it on my elf and it seems it is working
Requires GSM network, Windows Mobile , .Net CF 3.5

1. Battery Friendly, No active background process.
2. No GPS needed.
3. User configurable interval to check for location.

Well it works like this:
1. Install it.

2. Open the Location Aware(from programs)

3. When ever you start the app it will vibrate the device 2 times and then asks "Add this Location".

4. Click OK and it prompts to save the volume level for this location and save.

5. Adjust the volume level as you desire from the Slider on right hand side of screen.

6. Then goto Menu and Save Location Mode, this should save the setting for this location(Prompt will be displayed).

7. Now you can let the application run itself every X mins to check for new location and prompt you whenever a new location is found.

8. To set the interval time goto Menu -> "Stopped" this should open up a panel to enter the interval time, fill it and click set. "Stopped" should be changed to "Running". Now you can Exit.

9. If prompt is not dismissed or OKayed within 1 min(Automode). It dismisses itself and will prompt again if new location is found after next X mins.

10. The limit for interval is 2-60 mins, that means the app will run itself after every X mins and check for location, if a new location is found it vibrates
and then asks you to save this location or not, in case you dont respond to it, it will close itself after 1 min.
and in case the location was already saved it will automatically apply the volume profile.

Basically as you keep on using it the database keeps on growing and in parallel profile settings gets more customized.

PS: You may notice that the taskbar volume indicator is not changed, but that is normal. The volume setting is still applied as per your choice
v0.3
1. Reflect the volume level changes in the taskbar volume icon
2. New mode added "AutoSave", enabling it makes the app save new location automatically with the last volume preference, whenever a new location is found.

PS. AutoSave mode works in Scheduled mode, if you have set the app to run after a scheduled interval with autosave mode enabled and it detects a new location it will prompt a message-box, if you don't give it a response i.e ignore it, it will add the location automatically after 1 min and will dismiss itself.

for users of previous versions: It will use the already existing database of location settings, just install it over the previous version.

Nice Idea. Can you extend the functionality to save profiles including Bluetooth settings (on or off) , sound volume based on locations and accordingly inc/dec the volume and on/off the bluetooth whenever a saved location is encountered?

Step 6: in "menu" there's no "save location". Instead, u must press "exit" (!). Then a message appears "location saved". Otherwise nice app. can the location setting be manual instead of auto checking every X time?

Option of "Save Location Mode" does not appear in Omnia 2. Omnia 2 only shows "Stopped" and "About". Not able to check if it working or not

Nice to see comments... well as fendee1 said it is a device volume switcher it adjusts your phones volume based upon your setting for that location. you can set the time interval after which it starts and checks for the location. for example you are travelling u may set a bigger interval. Also right now the volume level is changed but is not reflected on the taskbar volume icon.
