This is probably a weird question and most likely impossible, but still wanted to know. It might also be a general technical question, so I hope this is the right thread.
Let's say I'm in an area where there's no cell coverage and also no WIFI, and I want to connect to the internet. Above me there might be satellites of sorts, either GPS or internet ones. Are there any applications or hacks that could allow the GPS system / chip of my phone to work as an internet connection?
GPS is of course intended for finding one's position on a map only (such as Google Maps). But technically, it's still a way to communicate with a third party device. Depending on the implementation, it might be possible to use the chip to connect to satellite internet or other devices... perhaps with a hacked driver or special application?
Anyone know to what extent this is possible? Otherwise, can the GPS system be used for any other type of connectivity and transmission than just getting your position in the world? What tricks does the GPS system allow overall with custom tools?
