    nothing new here folks. just more software for devices that already have GPS receivers (7520 and 7100i). other devices need an external GPS receiver.

    I love the detail of the maps, but they are painfully slow to load on my 7100i.

    In fact its SO slow that when I ask it to pan to my current position and zoom in one level, the demo times out before it renders the map. As much as I'd love to love this app, I'm gonna have a hard time paying $45 for it. Its speed (or lack thereof) severely limits its utility for me.

    (**NEWBIE WARNING**)

    I have an external GPS reciever, any ideas how I can use that with the BB 8700?

    Reciever is bluetooth, and BB has bluetooth, but would I need to load the reference maps on to BB?

    Maybe I shouldn't read all this complicated stuff on Friday morning after partying hard on Thursday night.....but I had to ask lol

    Very cool but as Badboy mentioned it is slow and not worth the $45!

    Re: GPS Software for all current models

    Uh ... I caused some rumors...

    As of my point of view, it is just slow if you have the tracklog activated in the map. I couldn't figure that out for my own so I have asked their customer support. They told me there is a problem in the current version but it will be fixed soon.

    So I deactivated the tracklog and it runs a bit faster.

    But I guess the real problem is the online map download. There is nothing to improve because my 7290 is a GSM phone and the gprs connections are slow. I hope I will get a UMTS BlackBerry soon so I guess it will download the maps faster

    Nice program but it $49.00. I've had good luck using the free application (Hello World) from the download section.

    peguero,

    I don't have much experience in this area. Does your GPS receiver have Bluetooth capabilities? The only way I know of connecting your GPS receiver to your 8700 would be to establish a Bluetooth connection between the two devices. Then, using the software that started this thread, you might be able to get your position displayed on a map on your 8700.

    Lightbulb Re: GPS Software for all current models

    I guess peguero means the maps.

    The problem I encountered is: BT GPS pairing works fine but the maps did not load from the beginning. This seems to be a general BlackBerry problem and I have found a forum which directly targets "Spot" on BlackBerry devices. There is an article on how to get the map downloads work if they don't work "out-of-the-box".

    So have fun to check it out

    Hope it could help you solve the problem.
