Default GPS?

hi folks. just had to order a new avid 4 g through insurance cause I lost my
lg motion. and the motion is no longer available......sigh
cant seem to find a straight answer on whether this phone has GPS or not.
some of the spec sheets I've Googled said it comes with Google maps then I saw a few that said it has no GPS at all which would be odd in this day and age.
from what Ive read here seems like a decent phone but no GPS would be a killer for me.

thanks

I have been trying to figure this out for you but I can't tell. There are 2 reliable sites say different things. 1 say's no location services and the other says gps with a-gps support.

I am going to say that it does because the one site that says gps with a-gps support is one I use for a reference all the time and they are usually right on.

Hopefully some one that owns one will pipe in here and let us know.

Default Aw: Gps?

I've read the phone supports GPS but hasn't a radio.

So whatever radio means in this case, the phone has bluetooth and could use an external GPS, if it won't have a build-in GPS.
