    Hi,

    I hear you can get a GPS gizmo for the psp.
    Is it possible to try and make the PSP work for route navigation (walking or driving) ?

    Now, that would be awesome on that phat screen.


    Cheers

    Sonny


    ps. If this is a stupid idea, don't flame me. My excuse is I am new :mrgreenthumbsup:

    Google "MapThis", it uses the GPS psp device and is actually very professional. Search for it on youtube too for videos.

    wow. cool.

    I was only taking a guess but am so happy somethig like it exists.

    As I've said on another forum I posted on, I think i'll pass . I browsed a bit and it all looks a bit over my head and capabilities. Took me 6 hours just to figure out d/grading by myself.
    when i'm feeling brave (like, never) , i'll give it a go.

    sincere thanks for replying.

    Yeah, one video I saw of it showed it being able to tell you your speed and exact position and everything. I can imagine its hard to set up though cos you have to get the maps etc yourself.
