After a false start a few weeks ago, Dell has finally rolled out a GPS option for the Inspiron Mini 10 netbook in the US. The upgrade doesn’t come cheap. You’ll have to pay $70 for the integrated GPS unit and software, plus another $35 to get the higher resolution 1366 x 768 pixel display option. The GPS option isn’t available for the standard 1024 x 600 pixel display.
On the one hand, $105 is kind of a lot of money for an add-on for a $349 netbook. On the other hand, good luck finding a standalone GPS unit with a high resolution display for that price.
In order to choose the GPS upgrade, visit Dell’s Mini 10 order page, and when you customize your netbook, make sure to check the GPS option in the Mobile Connectivity section.
GPS is only available on Mini 10 netbooks running Windows XP. You can’t get GPS on an Ubuntu version of the netbook or on the Inspiron Mini 10v.
