    only $43... anybody come across this or have used it? experiences?

    basic gps receiver, car charger and usb charging cable included and a rated 10 hrs battery life. the battery life is what stokes my fire i guess.

    So, I went ahead and picked this up. My takes on this small device...

    Very easy to pair with my Verizon 8130 and 8330. Although it is fussy device, it may just be a OS issue I have been reading about with BT GPS pucks in general. I have to start Amazegps and let that aquire a fix on my location, then i was able to use Googlemaps and Blackberry Maps to find me. The indicators lights are a bit confusing at first, but I got that programmed in my head what the flash sequences mean.

    - overall price paid vs quality of device, I give it a 9/10

    - size(2 cig lighters side by side and quite easy to tote around) 10/10

    - satisfaction with ease of use with my blackberries, I give it a 3/10 (has to be something in the OS and connection timers because i set the connection timeout on Amaze to 10 Mins and it works flawlessly)



    COME ON RIM, GIVE US MORE OPTIONS IN THE BLUETOOTH AREA SO WE CAN SET THE BAUD RATE AND CONNECTION TIMEOUTS

    Overall a great device,

    yes it works with 4.5


    just like what i said, you have to run amazegps and let your phone get a fix and then you can use google maps etc. that is the downfall to get it working. i would check other reviews for some other pucks. nice and small, but a pain to get mess with. maybe better experiences out there?

    Well, any BT GPS receiver I tried worked with all my BlackBerry devices (incl. 7290, 7105, 8700, Pearl 8100, Curve 8320).
