We're trying to avoid custom APN settings because of the difficulty of managing them across carriers, etc. Please let me know if it does or doesn't work for you. email me directly at greg at boopsie.com I even think the port 80 version is a little snappier myself - which may be related to the way BB handles the internet proxy.
    The Channels now display properly. No issues yet... just installed it.

    According to RIM, any device after V 4.0.2 and prior to V 4.2 that has built-in GPS should contain the API we need to access BT GPS. I realize Verizon neutered the 8703e, but it should still work with a BT GPS puck. We are working with visortgw off-line to come up with a solution for this. Any device after V 4.2 should work with both the internal and external BT GPS device. We've tested this wit the Sprint 8830 internal GPS and it works great. We've also used an external GPS puck with the 8830 from Verizon - again works great. We'll post the solution to the 8703e as soon as we figure out what's what.

    Glad the http version got around the port 3001 error.

    We have updated the Boopsie software to support external Bluetooth GPS devices on any V 4.0.2 device or greater. You may download the latest version by going to http://boopsie.com from your Blackberry Browser. Stay tuned for a performance enhancement in the next week....
