which will be extra awesome as soon as evil google [evil google owns Waze as of June 2013ish] facilitates simultaneous GNSS (internal GPS and external GPS) within android — not displacing as does currently more awesome BlueGPSWaze INTENTS would be helpful.

PhantomAlert.com farce: pay to work for phantom alert, bait and switch marketing language, oh my another “smart” phone scam? (phantomalert review: avoid)

Filed under: android,BULLSHIT,DARPA,GPS,iTard,overview — Sagacious Himself @ 1:05 pm

You want me to add to- and verify your database AND charge me? no.

http://www.phantomalert.com/Free-Download-Page/Download-Page.html

Pay $10/month at least for the privilege of contributing to the accuracy of the phantomalert database is a privilege I need not.  Better model for me is a PGP signed trust model: the better the contributor the more time-accurate the database one may download freely.

.

If I am to subscribe to a payment model I expect FAR better than casual community contributions to a nebulous database with VERY little intelligence applied to design.

.

How the phantomalert marketing scam works:

“drivers and spotters report speed traps..on our website.  Then drivers simply download our .. database in to [sic] their GPS” …

.

What?  No mention of paying to work for phantomalert?

.

.

“you could be making singles of dollars [scamming friends with craig’s list and ebay]” — review

.

All the while RadarDroid Pro becoming less and less appealing.

waze, social gps navigation, actual-freeware, integrates speed trap reporting with self expiration.  PhantomAlert database continues to stagnate.   http://m.waze.com  to download latest client without [android] market.

(As android market continues to decay from MALWARE speciously claiming to be freeware the iphone platform becomes more appealing. )

GPS in mobile phones only “on” when 911 dialed (in 80s called cell phones) ?

Filed under: All Your Base,BULLSHIT,category euthanized,CIO,GPS — Sagacious Himself @ 2:40 pm

Bovine Feces!  I find the battery in my moto e815 lasts longer when I disable the GPS “feature” in one of the hidden menus.  Now if it was only “on” when I dialed 911, and I haven’t yet dialed 911 from my phone why does the battery last longer with the feature only “on” when 911 is dialed is disabled?

are you ready to receive a speeding ticket courtesy GPS in your mobile phone?

will I have to store my mobile phone in a tiny Faraday jacket until I’m ready to dial?

its almost as creepy as Gmail

(stop refering to mobile phones as cell phones)

using gps features on e815 no hack

[#][#][4][7][7][1][end]

4771 stands for GPS1

and then it asks for an SPC code… enter

[0][0][0][0][0][0]

these steps will take you to the gpsOne menu, and modify the settings in the settings menu by

changing the lock status [3] to off, test mode [4] to off, sample count [5] to 1, and transport type [6] to DBM.

You can’t change the IP address or the IP port [without a SEEM edit]. In the GPS test menu, you don’t need the start application function either. All you need is the ‘Last Location’ function.

Make sure your phone is enabled to use the GPS function, not just the E911 function. [073887]
Press end to clear out back to the start screen

Dial 922 and stay on the line until some gibberish starts coming out of
the phone. * hang up, you need not stay on the line after that.

go back into the GPS menu and press last location. BOOM. There are your
Longitude and Latitude coordinates. Go to mapquest and enter your
coordinates here:

* IMPORTANT: in some areas dialing 922 MIGHT connect you to emergency services. Do not hang up on them; instead POLITELY and PROFUSELY apologize explaining the number you did dial.

Once someone figures out how to sign BREW applications I imagine there will be some lovely homebrewbrew brewhaha (puns intended). Homebrewbrew GPS mapping software… better than Get It Now NAVItime. Since QPST, PST, et al are already pirated… its just the next step to pirate the software for signing applications 😉

Remember.. its not wrong to lie- or steal from- verizon.
