anyone that knows how to get the Mac address or something from the g1?
or the internal GPS.

According to

PS_Protocol: NMEA 0183
GPS-Antenna: Internal antenna
Complementary-GPS;Services: Assisted GPS, QuickGPS
Navigation_Chip(set): Qualcomm MSM7201A gpsOne

All you can get from Android is from the API I guess.

To get MAC address of the wifi card:

Don't think the GPS has a MAC address...

Hope it helps,

The easiest way to find out the MAC address is to connect to a
wireless network at home. Then go into the router and check the
status of the router. You should be able to see what IP address the
G1 is assigned to, along with its MAC address.

Note: On a Linksys router, select STATUS, then Local Area Network,
then DHCP clients table.

Good luck.
