    Is there a "real" GPS app? I need latitude & longitude, and I'd like to be able to program points like "home", "office" etc for routing & trip planning.

    BTW, I've had this phone for 23 hours, I'm not ready to root it or bootstrap it, or any of those other things.
    Thanks!

    I think GPS Status may suit your needs.

    If you need long. & lat. readings, you could cheat a little and use the Location readings you can get from the Setting Profiles app in the Market. I use it to control my profiles but you can just use the Locations tab as a quick way to get long. & lat. readings.

    I also need to be able to enter a set of coordinates, and get directions there.
