GPS coming to 3G iPhone?

It's pretty much a given that the next-generation iPhone will be faster, but it might be able to find its way home as well.

GigaOm is reporting that Broadcom is Apple's supplier for GPS chips that are inside the next iPhone, expected to arrive with a 3G cellular networking chip within a few weeks. GPS is an increasingly common feature inside smartphones, and is much more accurate than the cell-tower and Wi-Fi positioning system that Apple rolled out in January. (Industry, Mobile, Tech)

Interesting!
Only if it doesn't have a monthly fee. That's why I don't use cell phone GPS. Monthly fees FOR THE LOSS.

Why use a GPS on a cell phone or iPod when u can just buy a TomTom? They really don't cost that much.
