Midnight News

Three notes:

. Taipei Times talks about Parisians able now to find parking space through their GPS phones. Guess Taiwaneses can't find parking either.

. TomTom announced a free service called obviously enough QuickGPSFix for GO 910/710/510 users:

"to get an immediate connection between their device and a GPS satellite allowing their position to be "fixed" within seconds" Mobilised publishes.
The idea is to get ephemeris data in advance to speed up calculations. According to TomTom Support site:
"Using Quick GPS Fix , your GO downloads information about where the GPS satellites will be for the next 7 days."

. And Geek talks about Cingular providing now 3D maps through TeleNav GPS Navigator on the Nokia E62.
