    Today was my first day back at work after a 2 week vacation.
    Of course one of the first things I do was check for new ROMs.
    To my suprise I found a new one, published on 5/20
    It is still 6.1 but VZNav is now available as 4.1.5 and it works.
    GPS appears to be unlocked it works with Google Maps.
    I have yet to test it with Live Search.

    Judging by the filename used for the ROM, I would say this is a final version, so keep your eyes open and check the VZW support page fequently as I suspect we should see this in the public soon.

    Hope it comes soon, really starting to get a tad annoyed with the wps program, wishing our phones could just use the gps thats built in the normal way. :)

    The Saga is now "Out of Stock" at verizon.

    That can mean only a couple things, and i'm willing to bet none of them is that it's actually out of stock...

    was getting a bit worried you had gotten some heat for the info, glad to see it was much more pleasant than that. Just one question: did they fix the Fn lock on SMS?

    It could mean 3 things:
    1. It has been discontinued (not likely yet)
    2. It really is out of stock (doubtful)
    3. They have all been yanked to get flashed (hopefully)

    I just tested Live Search and it works as well.
    I should also mention that I had to set GPS to COM9 in both Live Seach and Google Maps

    Ok....color me dense. If it's not out of stock, then what does it mean?

    They've pulled them all to update the ROM?

    -------------------
    ok...so Brent jsut maybe answered that with the same conclusion.

    I doubt they are discontinued as VZW is trying to get in the GSM game and the Saga is the only phone they have with a full keyboard and GSM. I think the other carriers will be in trouble after the gps is unlocked. ATT (or anyone else) won't have anything on them then. The CDMA call quality is too good.

    After you boot up the phone and activate WPS service, you can exit the app the wifi gps will come on automatically when commanded. The app doesn't have to be active so to speak. Problem is the wifi seems to come on by itself too.

    Yep, that's about it. I've never seen any beyond my own, so i can't imagine it's out of stock, and it seems too early to discontinue it.

    On another note, while snooping around some network shares today I found one called "Beta Software" in the same area where they keep the ROM's I find.
    Sorry to say that I don't have access to that folder to see what is it, but I am trying to find somebody that does.
    Who knows what goodies hide inside.

    I think when Brent372 said he would keep looking, he meant that it would take longer than an hour. Be patient
