Re: mobile gps?

you can get long/lat with blackberry maps. I also use fugawi maps loaded on pc will give you everything you need.

Re: mobile gps?

Due an upgrade, and GPS feature will figure if it works.

Like the look of Samsung Tocco 8MP camera + GPS. Any feedback welcome. Please not all at once or I will lose my place on my Rubicks cube.
