Enabling GPS on a Nokia E65 or Nokia E63

This has been a question on my mind for the last 2 years since I got the Nokia E65. The marketing geniuses in Nokia put GPS programs on the Nokia E65 and E63 causing users to frantically check whether their phone actually has GPS built in. In fact many of you come to MyE65 first by looking up whether your phone as a GPS which you didn't know about.

Let's just make this plain statement - Your Nokia E65 and Nokia E63 does not come with GPS. But it doesn't mean your phone can't have a GPS receiver connected to it.

A GPS receiver is a device that connects to your phone, via bluetooth usually, and allows your phone to receive GPS signals. With programs like Nokia Sports Tracker and Nokia Maps, you can be on your way by buying a GPS receiver costing around $100 Australian dollars.

I have been looking for GPS receivers on and off since I got the Nokia E65. Today, finally, I have purchased a non-Nokia GPS receiver called the Freedom Keychain GPS. Its so small it fits on your keychain. We'll see how it works when I receive it in the coming days.
