    This is not a Treo issue but a carrier issue. While the carrier knows where the Treo is, the Treo does not know. The carriers makes this information available to LE but not to the Treo or its applications.

    The Palm VII carrier provided an API. The Palm could query this API and get the 5 digit zip code in return. Some applications, e.g., Starbuck's Locator, would accept this zip code as an argument and return zip code specific information as a function, e.g., Starbucks near that zip code (the closest Starbucks to Huntsville AL is in TN).
