Default an advanced settings manager based on GPS Location

Please Login to Remove!

does anyone know of an application that would automatically change your settings based on your GPS Location... for example when you get to your work complex it switches to silent or vibration when you get home it switches to loud... ect. ect.

T-Mobile's G1 has a similar application called Locale

will that basically work the same or is each location just regionalized by cell tower... like is it accurate enough to know im on one side of town not the other? (this is a small town btw)

Does the trial actually work? I can't seen to be able to add a cell tower (can only highlight NONE). I want to see if it will work for my purpose

HOME- EDGE -OFF
WIFI -ON
BT -OFF

CAR- EDGE -ON
WIFI -OFF
BT -ON

HOME- EDGE -OFF
WIFI -ON
BT -OFF

I don't think it will due to cell tower range, the transition, won't be seamless.
I do have optimism that someone may come up with software that could use GPS or a combination of features to do so.
