gpsDashboard

A Palm webOS™ app

If you're on Verizon and experiencing long delays to get an accurate fix here is why.
Also, I've heard that loading VZ Navigator (even if you haven't paid for it!) may wake the gps up. If that doesn't help, try restarting the phone.

gpsDashboard is an app that delivers miscellaneous information gathered with the Palm Pre's GPS service. This document includes information on both gpsDashboard Free, and gpsDashboard+, if you are using the free version you may not have access to some of the features mentioned here. gpsDashboard+ is now available in the app catalog for $1.99.

I need help! I have included tranlated information into the app, but I don't know any native speakers of the languages to get it right. If you have noticed anything wrong with the translations, or would like to help get better translations included please email me!
