Alltel launches GPS-based location finder

Alltel WHERE GPS Service

Alltel today launched its version of WHERE, a service for hunting down local points of interest. Similar to most dedicated GPS units, a supporting phone with assisted GPS can pinpoint important destinations such as gas stations and hospitals that are within range of the phone. The software can also add customized news feeds to the phone for headlines, weather, and other constantly changing information that displays alongside the location-finding tools.

Using the service currently requires one of a few specific cellphones, including the pictured Hue as well as the AX8600, Wafer, and Wave. Adding the feature requires a download from the carrier's Axcess store and a regular $3 monthly subscription in addition to an existing plan.
