Oh darn. I forgot the smiley thingy again.kreelanwarrior said:Hmmm, does the Kindle actually have GPS, though? I thought it just approximated its location based on the proximity to cell towers when connected to Whispernet...?

Yes, Mike. I was jerking your chain. That's my way of saying hello, nice to see you.

Leslie said:Here are the GPS shortcuts:
It seems there is a location capability (GPS?) in the CDMA module. The following shortcuts are programmed inside the browser.
Alt-1 show current location in google maps (cellphone tower receiving the call).
Alt-2 find gas station nearby
Alt-3 find restaurants nearby
Alt-5 find custom keyword nearby
Alt-D dump debug info to the log and toggle highlight default item
Alt-Z toggle zone drawing and show log
Like I said, I haven't really played with this so I am not an expert at all. Just posting the info.
