Hi Totor,

While looking how to create ODK client app - Survery for Android, I
found out that there is another XForms and OpenRosa project i.e.
OpenXdata which uses the convention Nokia phones with GPS and out a




It also support PostgreSQL server

Quick Start.

Try downloading the client on your Nokia -- openXdata mForms (mobile client)


Probably easy to customised the XForm for the Street Name and coordinate.
