Apparently, with AGPS, the network knows where your phone is to within a few yards, assuming you've got decent coverage. It's relatively new stuff. I'd never heard of it until I powered up the phone and it said, "Verizon aGPS", and I thought, "What's that?"
The phone display shows an icon saying it knows where it is. (Like crosshairs in a circle)
The manual doesn't say much other than it can be used by software to provide the phone's location. That's why I'm wondering if there is any software (or a web site) that lets me locate the phone.
There are pay sites for Nextel phones. One I saw is designed for nervous parents...
It tracks location on a map, speed, etc, so parents can track their kiddies. I haven't found any that say they work with Verizon. Maybe I'll call Verizon...
