GPS For Non GPS Phones

Northport Systems has launched a software that allows you to use your mobile phone as a GPS device even though it isn't GPS enabled. The software is web 2.0 based and enables users to see their actual position on maps, find nearby locations, use various GPS widgets for outdoor recreation such as hiking, mountain biking, and fishing or even if you need directions to your own home. The phones do not need to support Bluetooth nor do they need a client software as it works entirely through an Internet connection. The software named Fugawi Touratel is compatible with models from LG Electronics, Motorola, Samsung and Sanyo, from carriers that include Alltel, Boost Mobile, and Sprint. Subscription is pretty reasonable as well at just $3 a month.
