    Well if it can tell where you are when you in a car going 100 MPH what do you think? It doesnt know your in a car, its just knows where the phone and gps unit are.

    ok i duno, i thought the car stuff tells you like what roads to take to your destination etc etc...all i would really like is just a map with a dot saying where you are

    any recommendations on what stuff is needed/good to do this? eg which gps unit and software?

    Well it will tell you where you are to the nearest 20M or so, if thats good enough.

    all you need is a copy of mobile tomtom, and a gps unit, both should be able to get from ebay for less than £50 in total.

    No, 3G meens where avaliable you can use hast internet a video calling ect..... for Satnav or GPS you need a unit that is not built into the phone. There are phones coming out that have built in GPS but for the meen time there in very limeted supply. There is a wap program that can tell you where you are if your lost though, if that help at all?

    I pay £0 for as many mins as I like basically. Add me to your msn.

    I dont pay £0 I pay £30 then get cash back for the £30, please stop adding me to msn, unless you want to know where to get a well good cash back deal!

    Also cash back deals are not dodgy, if you go to the right places and play by the rules, wich in most cases are quite simple. There is money to be made if you play your cards right.
