Anyone aware of the list of Cellphones available in the market with have a Built in GPS Antenna.
I use the N6110 Navigator & find it to be excellent,Unfortunately the Camera is not great for Night pictures.....The option is the N6210.Any others.

iPhone 3G and 3GS have a GPS receiver. The camera doesn't have a flash, so I'm not sure how it is for night photos, though.

is the GPS on Iphone going to cost money to use? as it has to half use the cell masts for location...I wanted internet usage for 1 year on contract then pay as you go...and then hopefully just use GPS on it's own, also a question about using open Wifi without having to pay, does that work like the computer's wireless where you can hook it up to your house and not pay that data plan on iphone

Like most other phones, the iPhone uses assisted GPS, which means that it downloads the current satellite tables through the internet in order to save lots of time (the satellite data downlink is very slow by comparison) and on top of that cell towers are indeed used to provide a "rough fix" initially.

The result is that you will get the rough fix within very few seconds with the final fix not far behind if there is at least some satellite reception.

Using the GPS doesn't cost money to use per se, but in order to work as well as it can, it needs data access.

If you've got WiFi access, data will of course be pulled through that.

You're welcome.

I'm actually using one of the smallest plans from T-Mobile myself, since I use the iPhone primarily through WiFi and need the cell network only occasionally.

So far my actual cell data volume has been rather modest, and that includes occasional use of the web and GPS/Google Maps.

As always, your mileage will probably vary.

I currently use the Nokia Navigator Software on the N6110,but it covers Six cities only.In case I'm moving ot of mumbai,I use Google maps using GPRS & GPS from the phone for plotting.Very accurate.

My Nokia 5800 has a GPS receiver but I've never used it. I have a navi in my car and I even use that very rarely (exept for the "map function" which shows you all traffic-jams in the area around you, this is a feature I use daily).
