managed to tweak the registry on my old m600 to enable the GPS control panel (allowing multiple progs to acces info from GPS device simultaneously), probably using a .cab. but since my new m600 arrived, i have not been able to work out how to di it for love nor money.

(quite why orange insist on fiddling with the rom so much i don't know. i mean i can understand their desire for the device to say "orange" when you turn it on and have a network-dependent home screen, but why remove/disable useful programs/funtions?! grr)

please can someone point me to the right place?

ta!

HKEY_LOCAL_MASCHINE\ControlPanel\GPS Settings

Add a DWORD called "Group" and give it the value of "2" (dec) keep the Hide key but change the value to 0 and delete the redirect value and soft reset

If you have a GPS device, you can add a GPS settings icon to your Start > Settings menu using:
HKLM\ControlPanel\GPS Settings\Group = 2 (DWORD decimal)
HKLM\ControlPanel\GPS Settings\redirect :)
