Am having difficulties getting the GPS to work with Goole Maps and the product packaging here in Asia doesn't have TomTom.

I'm looking for a GPS testing tool to test whether I can get an initial lock onto a GPS (which I understand can take several minutes first time arond) and eventually then use Google Maps.

Google tells me there's a (freeware?) tool "GPS Viewer" by Holux / Maction but I can't seem to find a .cab file. Anybody can share a link to this or a similar tool, much appreciated.

does anyone know of a simple today plug-in that would display different gps info? like maybe lat/long, speed, direction, etc?

Isn't that going to kill battery... having GPS on all the time?

Of course it would... doesnt mean you have to have it active all the time though, i was just thinking of some instances where it would be cool to have that info but not loose all the other info on your today screen..
