Default Deleting GPS

Please Login to Remove!

I have no need for GPS. Is there any way to delete it from my BOLD to either speed it up or make room for other useful applications? Is there any benefit?

Thanks BBF Team!

You can turn it off in advanced options.

You could in theory delete the application COD files. The only issue is many applications have dependency on other applications even if they don't use GPS. Your best bet is to leave it and the Bold has plenty of memory.

Just do as captsoto suggested and turn it off. I wouldn't delete any .cod's associated with it.

I have to agree. The memory usage would be the programs that use the GPS and not hardware. I erased my NAV software along with the samples and games the first day.

The only "included" navigation software is BBMaps. Just look in Options >Applications and see if it's there. If it is, delete it. I sure wouldn't lose any sleep over this, though.
