Tourality seems like a computer game but it’s outdoor and mobile! That’s why there are some requirements concerning the hardware: You need a mobile phone that supports Java (MIDP 2.0, CLDC 1.1) and Bluetooth if applicable. To get the GPS data on your mobile phone you will further need a mobile phone with integrated GPS or an external Bluetooth GPS receiver.
During playing Tourality, you will need an internet connection (GPRS/UTMS connection) of your mobile network operator. The amount of data transferred for Tourality is generally low (see this FAQ entry).
Mobile phones which are compatible are listed here. We have also compiled a selection of compatible Bluetooth GPS receivers here.
How you get Tourality to your mobile phone is described at the Download section. Either you can install Tourality directly ‘over-the-air’ on your mobile phone or can you download the installation files to your computer to save the costs for the mobile download (about 1.4 MB).
