    Umm, the triangulation already works on the Centro. My Sprint Centro with Google Maps loaded has the "My Location" functionality which pinpoints my location very accurately...

    is what I have been going on for a few years now.

    What I was basically saying that I read somewhere (Brighthand?) that to be a Rev.A 'certified', the device's OS & its chipset had to be able to handle simultaneous voice & data calls, regarless of the capabilities of its network (perhaps for an eventual Rev B qualification?)

    As always, please correct me if this is wrong or in error. But I really don't think a lack of Rev A compliance is worthy worrying about for Garnet at this stage of the game regardless...

    Lucky you I use my location and I am almost never within the 1800m circle it says I should be at the center of

    I don't see how that article would lead anyone to believe that there is a limitation of PalmOS for supporting RevA. In order to do simultaneous voice and data the phone has to make everything data via VOIP and then the network splits it back up, but it is still just a data connection and considering that there are VOIP applications for Palm all the pieces are there. I also don't think RevA certified means anything and Palm could just support the higher speed RevA data if they wanted to.

    It wasn't worth the investment for Palm to make a new PalmOS phone with MSM6800, they will wait for Nova and run it on either the 800W style hardware or an MSM7500 based platform.

    I agree with nitf. I have several RevA phones on Sprint that don't support simultaneous voice+data. EVDO is not capable of supporting voice+data. EVDO is capable of handling voice *converted* to data as in VOIP, but that is just an application level thing, as EVDO wouldn't really care whether the data came from the Blazer web browser or the never-to-be-released Skype app.

    I have never seen a Sprint RevA phone that supported voice+data (in the traditional sense as opposed to the VOIP sense)

    I conclude there is no such thing as a EVDO RevA requirement that a phone support voice+data and that whether a Centro will support RevA in the future depends on whether Palm wants to upgrade the chipset to support RevA.

    I like the keychain idea. What software are you using? I would really like voice guided directions. Any feedback on hardware and software?

    You can use TomTom 6 or Garmin Mobile XT. Both work great. There are 1000's of posts about the software on this board that you can check out.
