    Not sure if this was already posted elsewhere, but I gave this a try after I read the EVDO Rev A thread (http://discussion.wmexperts.com/showthread.php?t=167616) and how you can check the settings by dialing ##3836# (i.e., ##EVDO#).

    I tried it for GPS and got to another screen. Enter ##477# (i.e., ##GPS#) on the dialpad and you get some interesting info. Unfortunately, that's about as technically savvy as I get, so hopefully this information will be useful to others to find out more about the device.

    I tried ##hotchicks## and didn't get any hot chicks.

    Well, 'StandAlone' is an option in there.

    would this setting be what would get the "my locations" feature in GoogleMaps to work?

    Maybe, I don't feel like fiddling with it though. The default setting seems to be Standalone, but when I turn on Pocket Navigator, then access the ##477# menu, in the device state it is not reading, but in Extended Device it says MS-Based.

    My GPS works great with Google Maps, Live Search, and of course Sprint Navigation right out of the box. It gets fixes in like a second or less... not kidding. I haven't tested it with the phone radio off/soft reset trick, but I could care less... This is the best GPS navigation phone I've ever had.

    no no no!

    "My locations" is cell tower triangulation; there is NOTHING you or anyone here can do to enable it on our phones, no registry, no menus...nothing!

    In full agreement with you, but I do like to track my progress on flights, and when I go out offshore fishing. Otherwise, I could care less.
