    Question.... is there any apps out there that automatically turn on wifi based on a saved gps location, i.e...your home?

    They have some how to guides and info on their site at WWW.probeez.com

    I tried Smarter WIFI...It seems to turn on after work, but not turn off leaving for work...maybe its just me. Going to try that Y5....the others are pay and Settings Profile may not do what you are looking for?

    Setting Profiles definitely does it. It's basically a more functional, yet cheaper version of Locale. Not familiar with Smarter WiFi.

    If all you want is to turn wifi off, y5 works very well. SP, of course, does far more.

    Does Settings Profiles automatically turn on Wifi at 5:00pm and off at 8:00am?
    If it does, I am all in...

    You can set it up that way, yes.

    I can post later on some of the ways I use it beyond that if you're interested. Single most useful app I have.

    Maybe I am trying wrong one...this one is by wolfgang sanyer...all I can do is set a profile that says WIFI on...and a profile that says WIFI off...I still have to switch profiles, no?

    UPDATE:

    Okay I think I just picked the right app. Now to see if it works. Will post update.

    No no...Setting Profiles by Probeez. You're using the wrong one (here's the QR for the "lite" version)

    Tasker allows you to do it by GPS, Cell Tower or SSID. Tasker is known to be better than LOCALE and Settings Profile because of all the built in tasks you can do. Plus it can use all of the Locale plugins besides. It has the ability to do a lot more than both. Don't believe me, go check it out. I just set up when launching Google Navigation that the GPS turns on and when I exit Google Navigation the GPS shuts off.

    Here is the link at AppBrain.
