    Question Vzw Gps?

    Advertisement



    Got my 8130 and love it so far....traded in a pocket pc....so anyways, they tout the fact that it is GPS capable but apparently only with their VZNavigator. I believe that it has a GPS chip but am unsure. If so, does anyone know if it can be unlocked. Sprint and the others, I believe, have theirs unlocked. Any ideas?

    Hi, sorry vzw locks the GPS at the carrier level.

    As of right now, no one has figured this out. It does have a gps chip in it that can only be activated by VZ Nav. I feel your pain.. I bit the bullet and got vz nav.

    I just can't see paying another $10 a month when I can get a Bluetooth GPS for $40 ? I was disappointed when I found out that that was the only way.to get it;

    Try googlemaps for free. Not exactly GPS but it will triangulate your position through the cell towers.

    Yeah the only reason I did it is I drive for my job and it comes in handy.
