GPS for the PSP

The Playstation Portable (PSP) is as you may guess from the name usually used for playing games. However it has other tricks up its sleeve including so I read the possibility of GPS.

The PSP as well as playing games can play audio, show pictures and play video. It also has wireless capability and a somewhat simplistic but usable browser.

I have seen the PSP camera which allows you to take video and photographs, but was interested to read about the GPS capability.
