    Would be cool to have app that stays totally in the background as a service, that toogles on wifi when approaching to a certain pre defined location (home, work...) and then toogle wifi off again when leaving this locationarea. The area should be be about 500m-1000m around a certain point or so that fluctuation in the localisation isn't an issue.

    That's what would be "Pre"-thinking of a phone.

    What do you think?

    Neat idea. One problem I can think of is that this would essentially require the GPS to be running all the time, or at least checking in small enough intervals to be useful.

    Could be a serious battery drain.

    it is a great idea - i'd rather have the extra battery though.

    I just leave the wifi on all the time, it automatically connects to a known hotspot when you get in range of it, and if you're not in range it will still use evdo.

    Yeah, the GPS sucks more battery life than Wifi, so it wouldn't save battery life...
