    I was reading about Connecting Sony PSP to GPS. Has anyone tried it and does it work in the US? That would be sweet if i can also use my PSP as a GPS

    http://pc-mobile.net/pspgps.htm This is the link where i found the GPS page.

    i think you need homebrew for the US(MAPTHIS)

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    yeah
    make sure you get PSP-290

    cause that is the PSP that is MADE for the PSP by Sony.

    If you use other PSP's there may be a risk of you bricking it

    No it works for all PSP, its just that there is no PREMADE PROGRAM for anywhere else other than Japan.

    So you would have to use MapThis! and then you would have to go download your local maps through google.

    Its really easy.
