    GPS tracking with a BB

    Advertisement



    I have found a few threads concerning using a bluetooth GPS module with a blackberry, however no one has mentioned compatible software. I am interested in using my new 8703e as a navigator for driving and navigation purposes. Also, I have found several bluetooth GPS modules. What I am wondering is if anyone knows of any mapping software that supports BB for real time tracking. I have already looked into using Google maps this way and unfortunately it doesn't support it. I love google maps, but I wish I could add GPS navigation into the equation. Anyone have any experience or advice to share with me? Thanks.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I use spot for blackberry. It works pretty well on my 8700. Search google for the link or I'll post it when I get home.

    Welcome to pinstack bubi! Google maps is free. I would just pay the $10 for Garmin or Telenav, trust me its well worth it!

    Will the GPS work on the 7290? I have Google maps and it is very difficult to use, very slow.

    If your 8703e is from Sprint, you could get the free Blackberry map. It works on my 7130e and uses the internal GPS. It is not as good as Telenav, but it is free. BB map doesn't have voice prompt and it seems to be much slower than telenav when updating the maps. The one thing BB map can do Telenav cannot is that BB map could track you while you are moving without being in navigation mode.
