Thread: iPhone 2.0 GPS question

  1. #1
    Default iPhone 2.0 GPS question
    Does anyone know if the new iPhone will have INDEPENDENT GPS capability? I know it will have GPS service via the carrier, but I would like to know if I can use it WITHOUT paying for the service, like some smart phones can do.

    First post, total newbie, by the way...

    Thanks,

    One of the big GPS service providers (Garmnin I think) reported developing a 3rd party GPS app but I'm sure it won't be free. You're going to have to pay one way or another.

    Buying the software is fine, it's a one-time expense. I don't want to pay all the time...

    I think Apple forbade companies from making apps that interact with the iPhone's GPS....so paying continuously will be the only option available (what Apple want).
