How open is Verizon to Location Based Services? I see they now offer VZ Navigator - but only on the new V325. Many other phones support gpsOne and its IPOSDET API - why do they not make this BREW application available to older phones as well? Is Verizon interested in partnering with BREW developers who can produce quality LBS applications?

Hope this post generates some discussion, as I feel there is a huge potential in LBS BREW apps and am surprised that there are not more out there yet.

Very sorry about that. Thanks for not deleting it.

Verizon has very strict requirements about LBS applications. They have contracted to have a developer create a wrapper around IPosdet that allows for additional privacy controls. You will need to contact Verizon for any information about developing LBS applications for their network and to obtain any required resources.
