    Question GPS No data plan?

    Advertisement



    I just recently purchased an 8700c and haven't added on a data plan yet (can cingular charge a more ridiculous amount of money for one??!) and until I do, I was wondering if anyone knew of a GPS program that would utilize a GPS receiver and maps pre-downloaded onto the device?
    So basically, GPS without needing a data plan..

    I have searched endlessly... any help? Thanks!

    There aren't any preloaded map programs for the BB that I know of.

    Even if there were, storing all those maps would take up an unbelievable amount of memory.

    Plain & simple, No data plan, no access to the GPS network.

    Not quite. Just no access to maps. So unless you can navigate on lat and lon alone it's pretty pointless. The GPS receiver will pick up satellites without a data plan.
