    On a Sprint Treo 600 select Menu/Phone Preferences (:menu: A)

    One of the check boxes is "Enable Location Privacy". Checking this box would prevent palm applications from "receiving location information (approximate longitude and laditude location)" From the little I found on this screen

    This looks like it might provide similar information as GPS.

    Anyone know how accurate this is?
    Could it be used instead of a full-blown GPS unit?
    Is there any software in the works to use this information?

    Yeah I noticed that too. I think it has to do with the integrated Snaptrack AGPS chip which I beleive is in the Treo600 and many other Sprint phones. However, Sprint has not launched its locations based services yet and thus I don't believe this service is available to 3rd party devs yet. Maybe in the future...
