    Maps On Pearl with Bluettoth GPS..........

    Advertisement



    Hey guys, I searched the forums and I am getting different answers to this question.


    If I download Blackberry Maps from www blackberry com / maps to my pearl/curve and then purchase a bluetooth holux gps will I be able to successfully use gps on my device?


    Basically, will it work without a data plan. If I am downloading the maps to the phone, and using a 3rd party GPS system would that need a data plan? Any help is appreciated

    Thanks!

    Well, what I hear on this forum in the past is that there are no atoranle maps for the pearl. You must download them as needed, and yes you need a data plan.

    What good is this phone without data anyway?

    Well lets see... its stable, the call quality is great, has a cam. I use it for text mesaging and calling. You can store music on it. Whats the difference between this and a non blackberry cell phone? Why does it matter if I choose not to get an over over over priced data plan from Rogers. The phone is still great without it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yeah sorry you have Rogers. I understand their plans are robbery.

    Unfortunately, all the map programs that I am familiar with require streaming data in order to function properly with GPS.
