Re: unlock gps

Do you have Verizon? If so, a GPS unlock is on the way... If you have Sprint, you can use those above mentioned programs as is without a need to unlock.. You should also check out Google Maps.. It is totally free..

Oh, and welcome to PPC Geeks... A wealth of knowledge is at your fingertips.. I recommend you join the Coz Boogie Militia.. Go here for more info on it..

Re: unlock gps

Sprint and Telus are both unlocked. You can use what ever navigation software your heart desires.

Re: unlock gps

yulp. no monthly fee. I have both garmin and tomtom I have garmin access my data (I have free unlimited data anyways) to get traffic. You can turn it off if you want. The GPS even works where you dont have service since all maps are loaded on your device (they take about a 1GB or little more)
