Does anyone have suggestions for low cost GPS capabilities in conjunction with a j2me enabled device.
Ideally, I would like to use a low-cost, widely available, cell-phone as the device (as opposed to PDA.) This means the config./profile is likely to be CLDC1.0/MIDP1.0 - does anyone know if there are any GPS access classes available that will work with this combination?
Any advice on location determination is very welcome!

Hi Pete,
Motorola's i88s device has GPS functionality which we can exploit in our J2ME apps. Motorola/Nextel combo works well. u can download GPS APIs from Motorola's iDEN network site. (otherwise get back to me, i have them ).
I agree. Here's the link:
