    Does anyone know of a way to interface my iPhone's GPS with my laptop? For example, to use for wardriving/mapping

    Nope. You can have bluetooth interaction with the 3.0 SDK though, so an enterprising developer might be able to write up a program that sends GPS data over the usual bluetooth GPS protocols. If you don't want to wait, keychain gps receivers can be found for pretty cheap these days.

    You can't. That poster didn't know what they were talking about.

    it is possible, I do it all the time

    Actually, bradenwh is right. I misunderstood. I thought you wanted to use your iphone like an air card.
