    Cell Phone GPS???

    I have Verizon Wireless service. I use an Audiovox 9155GPX Click here for info on phone I was wondering if I buy the data kit for this phone, if I can use it as a GPS system for my Carputer?

    Anyone else try this?

    Thanks,

    The Rafster

    as far as I know the GPS in most cell phones isn't true GPS. It's using like 3 towers to tri-angulate you and then you are given your location. If the phone supports nmea standard then there could be a way.
