WiFi as N810 GPS POI- Simply Fantastic

I went for a walk today and decided to test out the Global Positioning System (aka GPS) capabilities of my Nokia N810 for the first time. I've never used GPS before.

In addition to displaying my latitude, longitude, speed when in motion and current location on a map, it is also possible to view Points of Interest- POI.

I picked a few POI categories back when I got the N810 but when it was still too cold to go out and test the GPS.

Today as I walked I saw where a number of wifi hotspots are, in places I had never known had WiFi before. That could be very useful when traveling or mobileblogging on the go.
