    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.

    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.

    got the phone yesterday.
    it does in fact have GPS with Google navigator installed.
    so far liking the phone seems just as fast as my motion.
