GPS is possible!
Man! i fiddled with the GPS crap for ever before i got it to work.
First. Global positioning does not = e911, e911 uses triangulation to sort of say you are around "this" area. but does'nt do what GPS does: pinpoint your almost exact lattitude and longitude.
my first little frustration was with my phone and the PHAROS bluetooth gps. i was using tomtom. although my friends little ipaq worked flawless, mine did not. the GPS control pannel is more explained on http://blogs.msdn.com/windowsmobile/archive/2 006/06/07/620387.aspx this site also says how to get it set up.
GOD i hate tomtom after all that, I never got it to work. so i got iGuidance. I had it working 4 minutes after i installed it. I could actually tell the program which port the damn BT gps was on! imagine that! grrr!
