Its entirely down to the specific device, and whether their Java implementation allows that access. Certainly, J2ME specifications don't mandate this - how could they, when the devices range from tiny mobile phones up to full-blown PDAs. It doesn't know which devices have GPS, and which don't. So, ask the device manufacturer what they intend supplying. And if they don't give GPS access, start nagging them to do so :-) ------------------ Richard Taylor Author of Professional Java Mobile Programming
