My husband says it's a must feature for me as I am easy to get lost I personally think it's a good feature but it's not a must for me. How about you?

Hello youless. I think that GPS is a good system to tell about the location of someone who easily gets lost as well as a good one for someone who wants to know about the direction to guide him or her. My cell phone is not advanced to have that service. I will consider to have that service when I get a good cell phone with more functions. Good day.

If I buy a new cellphone, it's better for it to have GPS

Yes, that's the minimum requirement in my next new cell phone. I think this feature is becoming more and more common. I remember about one or two years ago, only a couple of expensive Nokia model were having GPS function. Now, a wider selections of new cell phone model are having this exciting functionality. I was amazed by its capability to tell us our location and how to get to our destination easily. I have seen car GPS system too. It's so smart and will give verbal guiding instructions while we are driving. That's cool.

In fact nowadays it seems more brands of cellphones will have GPS feature, not only Nokia I guess you are using smartphone. If so, I think I can share lots of softwares and games with you

That's true. The technology advance in cell phone market is growing at amazingly fast pace. That's why old model become obsolete so fast. I am still using a non-3G phone, as a temporary replacement of the 3G phone that I sold half a year ago. I sold it because its condition is getting worse. I bought it at RM850 and it still worth RM200 when I sold it. This money is enough for me to buy the temporary phone Nokia 2360 that I am using now. Once I got my next smartphone, we can start sharing application and games .

I already have a GPS in my cellphone but its useless for me as I never use it and dont think I will ever use it.How can I get lost in my own area? I know I can't so it is not for me.Don't know about the others.

HI youless, [i] I would love too but I am not driving so I don't need it this time...But, I love the idea and it will help me reach my destination without stopping and asking people or looking for any people in the streets and ask for directions... [/i]

That is a cool and good feature. I just recently bought a new phone and it has a GPS. Its not a must for me since I don't travel much. But you never know, you just might need it one day.

Don't laugh my friend but I have absolutely no idea whether my cellphone or we call it a mobile in the UK has GPS capabilities! I just use my phone mainly to text friends and also for emergencies in case I am out in the car and it breaks down and I need to call road recovery services, I guess it would a great feature to have but it would also I guess make the phone more expensive? But it's not something I would desperately need or expect from a phone, I am not technologically minded to be honest.

I think to a person who often get lost like me, GPS will be beneficial for me

Its one of those things which happen with all technological devices. The companies need to make there phone sound high-tech so they stuff it with half-functional software and hardware for the sake of having an extra "cool" feature. I bought a phone with GPS only to realise you have to actually pay extra for maps and stuff.

Since I live in a small island I don't have much use of it since I am familiar with the roads here. However I would make use of it if I had to travel and drive abroad. I think I would make use of this feature.

I have GPS built into my car so I won't need it on my phone... I do find it very helpful since I travel a lot for work... At one point, I was lost in a state I've never been to & my cell phone didn't have any service... GPS pretty much saved me for that day, finding my way back to the hotel I was staying... When I check into a hotel, their business card is the first thing I grab, especially when I'm on a business trip...

I think you could buy a cellphone with GPS function since it is not expensive anymore. I am a lost guy too even in my city. And what I got is Nokia N95 8G, it's very useful espeically we you travell at other city. Under its help it's easy to find the Hotel, restaurant, scenery spot even public toilet and you don't have to carry a thick map booklet with you. It is really helpful You are gonna like it.

it a good feature to find one way in an area were not familiar with. but is kinda hard to be dependent with that technology. it like being to lazy to ask for simple directions. i agree with you YOULESS its a no no for me

I think asking others the direction will be much more convenient
