QuickGPS Lite for WM
We have many GPS applications around. This time we will talk about QuickGPS Lite, another way to get the latest satellite data, presented by XDA member Vico1000. Featuring an all-in-one program on a very low weight app that promises to not have connection problems, it uses any type of mobile connection settings (GPRS, ActiveSync, WIFI, etc.) and lets you save location. The developer mentions that you can choose from six different servers that will retrieve data in less than ten seconds.
If you have more servers, please post on the original thread so they can be added to future versions, and please leave feed back!.
