MyLocation Software Comes to GSM Treo's
An independent Palm OS developer named Razix has released "My Location" a psuedo-gps feature for GSM Palm OS Treo's. The software works in conjunction with Google maps to approximate a users location based on a approximation of the nearest cell tower that you are connected to. The service requires the current Google Maps (ver: 220.127.116.11) and a GSM based Treo such as the Treo 600, 650 and 680. The program is free, however it requires a registration and the developer is accepting donations which will remove the advertisements within the program.
Google first rolled out its own My Location services last November. Google's official Windows Mobile client supports the feature, however Palm OS devices require a future ROM update to support the service and Palm has only committed to releasing an update for "newer Palm phones."
