    Default [Advice] Will Second Gen iPhones have integrated GPS?

    The main reason I would switch to v2 is the integrated GPS feature...

    I heard rumours that V2 will have a GPS inside, what you think guys ?

    I don't care that much for 3G because I'm sure it will be expensive in my country, like edge is ...

    It would be a HUGE mistake not to include GPS. It's standard in all new smartphones now and besides, the iPhone has the best screen to support it!

    It seems likely since Core Location returns altitude when available. That isn't available from the current two positioning systems (wifi/cell).

    If GPS was there then the firmware 2.0 Beta must have showup some interface during? Not a single beta tester has talked about GPS .

    Well, I'm not sure. I can remember the GPS-Modules for Palm-PDAs that hooked into the dock port. The only thing those units do is to pass lon and lat to the device. On Paln-PDAs we needed to load mapps to display. Thats already done and working on the iPhone.

    I more guess apple will give more access using the docking connector and we will see GPs modules. So early adopters like us having "old" iPhones could enjoy GPS if needed. Those devices always hat their own batteries and did not suck the one of the device.

    I guess 3G will be sucking enough if used, GPS added as a module.

    Just my 2 cent

    It might also be a Bluetooth GPS module
