Have not owned a 4G phone yet, so I be cleared of this problem, but this problem seems intense. A good solution might be the simple one, keep your phone and your GPS separate. Buy a separate GPS for navigation and use your phone for anything else besides GPS.

I thought we already punched this dance card in the other thread(?)

The frequencies ATT & Verizon use for their LTE networks isare not adjacent to the frequency used by GPS, henceforth it's not an issue. Now the Lightsquared buildout may be different, but that ball is in the FCC's court now, along with their overpaid lobbyists.

Until then, please qualify your posts a litle more so your last statement will sound less like FUD. Understand, neophytes to this stuff will read it like it's something they need to worry about right now.

It appears Sprint will be using Lightspeed.
