I was wondering if the nokia 6275 has gps inbuilt or just an app that uses many telecom towers to find its area. If it is just an app would i be able to put it on my 6265?

Hi it is standard vanilla GPS (i.e not run off the towers) and is not just an application. The 6165i and the 6275i are the only phones that have it on board. Cheers

Are you referring to the GPS on the 6165 and 6275 or e911 aGPS that only works in the US that most phones have.

Yes this does work, it's very cool. But I don't think there is any software to allow assisted GPS by using the cell site.

The GPS in the 6275 runs off the satellites, just as any normal GPS, the "cell tower" GPS is not supported in NZ.

The GPS info is run as a java application and no, it does not support any other models.

The 6165 also has similar GPS capability, the GPS antennae on these phones is not overly sensitive so are not the best GPS around but a nice inclusion for the price.
