    Infospace and 8703E Verizon BB

    Advertisement



    Anyone know if Infosapce works on the 8703e since verizon has disabled GPS? Can it talk to a BT GPS Puck? Also I have it installed and the "Near" link on the home page is readable but the text following it is compressed to a row of dots making the actual locations unreadable.

    TIA

    I assume that you are referring to infospace® Find It! v1.3.2. I have the same device (8703e, VZW), and it does not appear to work with a Bluetooth GPS "puck" -- you must manually enter locations. I actually e-mailed infospace yesterday asking that exact question, and I have yet to receive a response.

    Is there a way to unblock the GPS capabilities?

    No -- VZW has blocked the aGPS capabilities on all of their phones so that they can sell a subscription based service.

    That's the one thing I hate about vzw....they're too greedy.

    Their coverage is great which is why I stay with them.
