I get the following errors loading the VB project, and trying to view the form design:
Unable to cast object of type 'Microsoft.CompactFramework.Design.UnsafeComponent' to type 'System.Data.DataSet'.
The variable 'wheretodoDataSet' is either undeclared or was never assigned. ...\Form1.vb 126

Hi Joe, I'm affriad I didn't write the VB version just the c# version - MSDN magazine got someone to write the VB version and I am not a VB man myself. Maybe another VB developer can help you on this discussion. Best of luck.

I just loaded the C Sharp version and had no issues. I am interested in the GPS location triggered alert aspect more than a particular language, so I'll play with the C Sharp version.
I am a bit surprised that this subject hasn't generated a lot of discussion / activity here. I think that GPS is a hot consumer market right now, and more and more GPS enabled phones are becoming available.
