    Hi,

    Is there a way I can see my phone's raw GPS coordinates, i.e. decimal lat/long? Is it built-in, or is there "an app for that" ? I have an Eris Droid.

    Thanks!

    GPS Status is one app that will show you the coords in Degree format for sure. Not sure if you can change it to show decimal.

    Thanks! MyLocation does exactly what I want. Hopefully it will be updated for Android 2 (when my phone has it).

    I'd be interested in having a way to get some GPS info on a status line somewhere in the Navigation app. I think it might be possible to flash between 'speed', 'coordinates', and anything else they want to display? It might be that this is already there and I don't know how to do it?
