Creating Applications that Utilize GPS
The availability of low-cost, and sometimes integrated, GPS hardware for Windows Mobile devices makes it possible to develop applications that are aware of their current physical location. Applications can access GPS information using a standard interface, and use the results for mapping, location reporting or "geo-tagging" other items of data.
