Poll: Do you use the GPS in your phone?


A lot of middle to high-end phones being sold nowadays come with GPS and/or A-GPS support and I wondered if people really use them at all.

Realme Philippines

Our poll this time is for phone users — if they use the built-in GPS in their phones. Most of my experience with using GPS is while driving to places I’m not familiar with. Instead of the physical maps (I have one of those EazyMaps), I often Google Maps and GPS to give me some sense of direction.

How about you? Is the GPS in your phone an unused feature or have you found some good use for it? Let me know by leaving a comment and adding your vote in the poll section.

Yes, I use the GPS in my phone. It’s a Nokia touchscreen phone loaded with the latest Nokia Maps firmware, a 30MB free roadmap of the whole philippines with tons of points of interests, and a UK female voice for voice navigation. I use another Nokia app to record my route then later upload it to Openstreetmap to enhance the online Philippine roadmap or to drive uncharted routes that you can back track later to get home using the recorded tracks. I blogged about it if you’re interested of details. Nokia has good maps because years ago they bought Navteq.

Yes, I frequently use the GPS of my Nokia phone. I always find any place where I want to go because of the built-in GPS, Google Maps and Ovi Maps.

I like the structure of the posts. Basic and straight to the point. I bet you are able to even do better. Write a lengthy article and show us what you are able to do. I have no doubt you’ll create even better information. I have subscribed to a lot of blogs but this one is really a keeper!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
