    Quick note to all you Alltel Treo Pro users (anyone?) and using the internal GPS.

    The internal GPS comes "deactivated" from Alltel and will not work with GPS software you install until you change the location settings from 911 only to allow other programs and services to locate you.

    Under Settings > Phone > Services > Location.


    For the life of me I could not figure out why my Garmin XT could not get a signal. Well low and behold it was because of the above information. Everything works great now!

    You're lucky that worked for you. I spoke to an alltel rep today and he told me the gps is locked until you purchase the alltel nav service for $9.99 a month. After you buy their service then other programs can access it. Someone has to know a tweak to allow googlemaps or other free programs to access the gps.
