Which GS-911 software to use

Users seem to be very confused about which software to download and use on what platform. Here's the software platform compatibility guide.

« Back to Table of Contents

There are several software applications for GS-911, each specific to a particular platform, namely:

  • The GS-911 Windows PC Software - see the minimum PC requirements.
  • Your web browser - if you have a GS-911wifi interface and WiFi you can use a compatible web browser.
  • The GS-911 Android Software  - if you have a GS-911 Bluetooth interface - for all Android devices that run Android OS. See FAQ "does it run on my Android?"
  • The BlackBerry version - if you have a GS-911 Bluetooth interface - for all BlackBerry phones (except Z10 and other QNX based phones - use the Android version - please see: Will it run on my BlackBerry? )
  • The GS-911Mobile.jar version  - if you have a GS-911 Bluetooth interface -  for all other Java midlet enabled (and JSR-82 compliant) mobile phones, like Nokia, Motorola, Samsung etc). Also for the new BlackBerries that are JSR-82 compliant (running software 4.2.1 or newer)
  • The GS911Verifier - for use ONLY on the Java midlet enabled mobile phones, to test whether your device is capable of running the GS911Mobile.jar version (of course NOT for use on Windows Mobile devices as they use the Windows Mobile version and there is no need or point to test for JSR-82 compatibility). See related FAQ "What does the GS911Verifier do?".
