    Default Navizon
    Navizon allows for assisted GPS on your iPhone. It uses the cell towers in your area to triangulate your location to within a couple hundred yards, and pushes the location to Google Maps on your iPhone. Very cool. I am unable to get mine to work, using T-Mobile, but have had many reports of the AT&T users using it without issue. Comments?

    <strong>UPDATE:</strong> Turns out it just doesn't like areas out in the boonies, or perhaps just areas it hasn't seen before, not sure. But it definitely works in T-Mobile, as can be seen by my map screenshot below.

    Yeah -- that's what you get when you go 'round messin' with your iPhone and unlockin' it and stuff.

    Now, where's that Summerboard update?

    You guys may have not seen my post in another thread, but the reasons your locations may not be found is because your area may have not been mapped yet by anyone. This is a peer-to-peer app, so it requires for someone with an gps enabled device to drive around the selected area and map out the areas wifi connections and cell towers, then uploads the data onto the site for others to use. So if no one with and GPS enabled windows mobile device haven't mapped your particualr area, and you have an device equipped to do so, then you may want to map it for yourself and others, good thing out of it, you get paid for doing it.

    Oh and yeah, this is my 100th post! Go me, Go me, Go me!
