    There is no GPS on a 2G iPhone. Thats the section you posted it.
    To use GPS on the iPhone 2G you'd need the external GPS module like "GPS 360" from Orange Gadgets (https://www.orangegadgets.com/shop/p...&products_id=1) and the app xGPS from Cydia.

    If you want the kind-of-accurate loacation on the iPhone 2G based on WiFi it has to be switched on. If you just care about knowing which city you are in or which part of it the triangulation method provided by cell tower calculation needs you to be connected to your provider plus have data service (APN and stuff) setup correct. But this is far away from beeing GPS.

    Can any bluetooth GPS module be used with xGPS app? or does have to be "GPS 360"?
