Sprint EVDO Rev A Hidden GPS

We decided to play around with the Merlin S720 Rev A Card from Sprint and we noticed a pretty cool built-in (but hidden GPS feature). We are wondering what cool features Sprint has coming down the road for us.

To see the hidden GPS dialog, do the following:

- Make sure you are disconnected

- Put your mouse over the plus (+) sign on the upper left of the Sprint Connection Manager Windows (don't click).

- Type in ##GPS

- Now you should see the following dialog box:

We have found, you can now Establish Data Connection and Activate or Start GPS. It looks like there are some tie-ins with Google Earth and other mapping sites.

So, what exactly does Sprint have coming for us? Either way, it looks like it will be fun.
