    Question Re: Using Pearl with Blackberry Maps and GPS

    I have been playing with BB Maps on my BB Pearl (With a Holux 236 GPS receiver) and I must say it works very well.

    One thing... has anybody figured out how to make it map direction from your current location? If you select "Go to" it will find the location you want to go to, but will not colour a path to it. If you select "directions" you need to provide a FROM and a TO address. I want it to give me directions from my current location (obtained via GPS) to an address I provide.

    Possible?



    Thanks

    Re: Using Pearl with Blackberry Maps and GPS

    I just picked up the Pharos iGPS-360 and it works fantastically. But I'm not a real big fan of the BB Maps app. Does anyone know if there are plans to have Google Maps connect to a GPS anytime soon? Google is a much better app, IMHO, and downloads the maps and caches them SO much better.

    I wish. But chances are Google will come up with a GPS-enabled version soon. They already have one working on Helio, so it won't be long before they release a general version.

    Go to www dot blackberry dot com/maps on your PC. You can download the map software and install it on your BB.

    I got it to work with my friends 7130. So you don't even need a Pearl.

    PS. I can't post URLs so I replaced the . with DOT

    Re: Using Pearl with Blackberry Maps and GPS

    Mine works great with the Oncourse edition 2 gps receiver (buygpsnow) I just bought to work with my iPaq. I don't think the GPS "talks" or pairs with both devices at the same time, though. Too bad, it would be cool to compare.

    TheTinRam asks a good question above. Anybody know how to map a destination from your current GPS defined location?

    Re: Using Pearl with Blackberry Maps and GPS

    Don't know if you tried this but after connecting the Holux 240 select its icon in the Bluetooth setup and choose SPP slave which completes the Bluetooth link. I had a similar problem and read through the instruction manual that came with the GPS device. Works like a charm now.

    To map from your current location in BB maps:

    Open BB maps, once the GPS device is connected press Start GPS and it will show your current location after a few seconds, press the menu key.

    Now select Directions, it will show you Directions From, press the menu key and select Use Map Center. Now enter the address you are looking for and it will provide a highlighted route with text route direction at the bottom from your current location.

    Cheers

    Re: Using Pearl with Blackberry Maps and GPS

    Hi,

    I'm on TMO UK, and do not have BB Maps installed. I have installed Google Maps several times, and when i try to open it i get the message 'fatal error: please exit and restart'. Is this because i've installed Google Maps that's not compatible with UK networks?

    Also, is there somewhere i can download BB Maps?

    Re: Using Pearl with Blackberry Maps and GPS

    I now know why the UK versions of the BB Pearl does not have BB Maps pre-installed in it! it's because it does not contain any map data for England or London! BUT it does for Ireland & Northern Ireland! Go figure! Unless i'm totally wrong! But this is what i've seen from going to the BB site!! And if i'm right...then that is sooo crap!!

    [QUOTE=SWT6]To map from your current location in BB maps:...

    SWT6, Brilliant! Thanks for the excellent tip. Used it today and works flawlessly.

    This really is a great site, lots of traffic and friendly, knowledgable users. The support here is amazingly better than the Treo boards. Pinstack may be the best thing about owning the Pearl.

    Re: Using Pearl with Blackberry Maps and GPS

    Tinram & marlow, no problem, as I said I'm glad to help. The online user manual for BB maps doesn't even provide this information. I just played around with my Pearl and stumbled on the solution.

    Cheers
