one of the many things that attracted me to the Sanyo 7050 was it's "autonomous" GPS feature... it can pinpoint and readout user location even while not on the PCS network.
what troubles me, however, is that thus far all of my poking and prodding has shown no way that the user can EASILY and USEFULLY read this data. i have the option to output my GPS coordinates via NMEA protocol over USB or BlueTooth. great... just what i wanted to do... bring a laptop along with me while hiking if i wanna see where i am.
is there NO WAY that the user can simply enable the phone to display LAT/LONG coordinates right on the display panel? even if some aftermarket software product would do it i'd be interested.
still love the phone for other reaso... (continues)
Basic, the most durable phone ever made by Sprint, and easy to use. This phone gets my vote. Every time we get a new shipment in, these phones go out fast. I just had a company buy 10 of them and so far no problems. I'll keep this thread updated if I come across any problems but so far, good as gold. We are just starting to see the real advantages of the Sprint-Nextel merger.
