    Huh? I don't know what you're asking. You want to have the gps always default to your home location when turned on?

    When you turn it on, it starts with wherever you are. It's, ummm in the nature of a gps, after all, to do that :-)

    When you start it up it user cell tower triangulation to find your general area before the phone finds you some satellites...

    What application/program are you asking about?

    BBMaps, Google Maps, VZNav, something else?

    I don't know how to do this either, but wish I could. I cannot speak for the OP, but it would be helpful for me.

    I live in the very back of an apartment complex. There is a street that runs behind my apartment, but the entrance to the street is not parallel to the apartment entrance. When I turn on GPS it gives me the address for the house behind me, and thus the directions to get from point A to point B from that address, not my home address. I would like to know how to start GPS from my physical home address, because if I were to go by the address behind me, it would take me in the opposite direction. I hope that made sense.

    I am using Google Maps. I tried the yellow pages program, but it kept freezing. I have not tried Amaze yet, that's next on my list. Do any of the mapping / gps programs let you set a home address as a starting point? I think this may be what the OP meant.

    Type in the coordinates (latitude and longitude) instead of the address.
