    Navigate Plan and GPS BB Maps

    Advertisement



    Hi All,

    Recently took on the Rogers $25 for 1mb plan for emails alone but feel its probably not worth it for me. I will soon be getting my SiRF III BT GPS via mail this week and was thinking if I could still use the GPS with a navigate plan? I know that without the data plan you loose the BB Browser and Rogers WAP Browser but BB Maps is still there .. so any thoughts on this? Per Rogers site GPS uses approx 500 – 850KB per month so if I get the $5 2mb plan with $0.03/kb overage this will really save me a lot no?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    It may work, but it isn't made to. So if you get at $500 bill, don't go crying to customer relations.

    It will work just fine, I have the $10-10MB plan on my curve and my Gf has the $5-5MB on her pearl...and I dunno abt that comment on loosing the browsers either my curve has the WAP browser, but not the BB one.

    again, it's not made to work, so when Rogers catches on, and you get charged for it, don't say you weren't warned.

    even if they do catch on, it's on my plan, they cant physically remove it and charge me for it without notification, aside from that it's noted all over my account that it will indeed work, so no one to blame but their shotty cust care reps for misinformation

    I talked to a tech at rogers and he said that was a great idea. So i hooked up the $5 5mb plan and my bb maps and wap browser still work.
