    i found some conflicting information about the gps functionality. some people say it works (google map's my location) others said it didn't, others said you can get your gps location w/o gmm and without sprint's navigation package (but didn't seem they meant another 3rd party software, basically sprint's nav w/o turn by turn directions and other frills).

    since this is the primary reason for upgrading from the centro to the 800w, and within 24 hours really could have used that gps functionality (google maps kept giving me the wrong streets/addresses when i looked up my surroundings), i figured i might as well get it now while i'm starting my 2year contract.

    anyone with some solid info for me? thanks.

    800w sorta can and can't.. the "My location" (hitting 0) does not work, but going through menu->Use GPS in GMM does work...
