It’s a common thing you see happen with many phones when they are first released. GPS has become almost a staple with mobile phones providing users with turn-by-turn directions. Some wireless carriers prefer to lock phones into using their paid GPS software even though the hardware is built-in. The case is very true with a lot of Verizon’s smart phones. Samsung Omnia owners can rejoice because there is a new ROM that unlocks the GPS so you can use any software for it. Although there are some lengthy steps involved in doing it, just being able to use an alternate program that may not be associated with any fees can bring a lot of joy and freedom. So head on over to Modaco’s site to get this running on your Omnia.
