Gps ?

I am thinking of getting a PPC 6800 for Alltel. I currently have a 6700 but I want to have on board GPS. Does the 6800 have on board GPS?

Re: Gps ?

Don't mean to sound dumb here but.....
So I can use it as a stand alone gps unit with no external bluetooth gps unit? It is built in, correct? Meaning that it works of satellites and not cell towers?

Re: Gps ?

Thanks y'all! Looks like I will be the proud owner of a 6800 just as soon as I can find a decent deal on one.

Re: Gps ?

To be clear: the 6800 DOES have gps, but you DO have to install something to the efect of a "security bypass" to access it. The 6800 does not connect straight out of the box. I use the .cab's on mine (Alltel) to free it up, and it works just fine.

I dont know about alltel but with sprint google maps, MS live, telenav, ect work just fine without any "security bypass"

Re: Gps ?

There is a cab in the GPS sticky thread (do a search in that thread) that unlocks it. I did it on the 3.37 radio and it works fine.
