    Hello everyone,

    I'm contemplating upgrading my Sony Clie to the Treo 600. While browsing the vendor website I read the following for the treo 600:

    " Stay on top of things. The Palm Treo 600 is Web-ready, GPS-enabled, offers personal information management and a built-in camera. Plus, all the phone features you could want."

    What does GPS enabled mean? Can I just download software and use it as a GPS? or is external hardware still required?

    Thanks for your replies,

    TC

    That means it uses pseudo-GPS to calculate its position, which is useful if you call 911. Pseudo-GPS means the system uses the known position of the cell towers and timing from the GPS network to calculate the position of the phone. Other than that, I don't think it can be used as a GPS or to show your position.

    If I'm wrong, and they've updated things, I'm sure someone will be along shortly to correct me.
