    Hey does anybody know how to get to the GPS and use the GPS? Does anybody have a guide? I'm trying to travel about 50 miles away from home and I would like to test out the Hero's GPS to bring me there if that's possible.

    There is a huge difference between GPS and sat nav
    GPS is the ability to use satellites to obtain your exact position. Sat Nav is using this ability to plot where you are and have software calculate how to get somewhere else from that location.

    The Hero has GPS built in and can be turned on or off from the setting menu.
    It does not have sat nav and you would need to download an app from the market.

    are you referring to GPS navigation? if so you need to download an app from the market (there are a few). Otherwise you can simply use google maps, activate the GPS and then click on get directions.

    Problem is I don't have Market because I have the Malaysian version of the HTC Hero. (Bad choice)
