HTC (High Tech Computer) Europe recently released a ROM update for its HTC P3600 (aka the HTC Trinity) Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition which adds the long awaited GPS functionality to HTC's small UMTS/HSDPA-enabled Pocket PC.
With this ROM update (which is still Windows Mobile 5.0 - it's not an upgrade to Windows Mobile 6), HTC adds what Vodafone got already for its VPA compact GPS - the GPS functionality. Hardware-wise, the Trinity was GPS enabled already but the GPS receiver wasn't used by the operating system.

Now, with the ROM update, the GPS receiver capability is enabled as well as HTC has added further improvements like browser enhancements, Bluetooth improvements and new data network icons to differentiate between GPRS, EDGE, UMTS and HSDPA connections.

The ROM update is available from HTC Europe's support site. The free download requires the device IMEI number.

Cheers ~ Arne

Tip: Don't use the HTC provided utility to create GPRS settings.  I did, and the GPRS connection would only work for browsing, not for email.  Create the settings yourself.
