EasyPark installation

In order to use EasyPark you have to take three simple steps:
1. Install the application
Installing EasyPark will install the application on your phone and also install the geolocation plugin for the N900 browser. This plugin is necessary for EasyPark to be able to determine your current location.
2. Configure the GPS
In order to use EasyPark, the location service in your phone has to be configured to use GPS and preferably Network positioning. Without the use of GPS EasyPark cannot determine the precise location of you and your car. Enabeling Network positioning will speed up getting a good GPS fix dramatically.
3. Start the application
The first time EasyPark is started, a dialog will be shown asking you whether you allow EasyPark to query your location. At this time you can grant EasyPark access your location info, and remember that choice. If you deny access to your location info, EasyPark will not be able to do anything usefull...
