    Where is the GPS Receiver Located in my Device?

    Advertisement



    Where is the built-in GPS receiver actually located in the various GPS-enabled BlackBerry devices?

    Knowing this information will ensure that users like myself, can position their devices correctly in the car, to get the strongest possible signal...


    I have a GPS-enabled BlackBerry 8800 and as such, my question primarily relates to this device, but I have worded the subject so that this information can also be made available for other GPS-enabled BlackBerry device.

    No offence, but that doesn't really help BlackBerry users reading this on their device, particularly those that don't own and/or have regular access to a computer (like myself)...

    I would also really like to know this, not because I use GPS a whole lot, but simply because your thread caught my interest haha random

    Just as a point of interest, giving a link showing the inside of the Blackberry is nice, but since the chips do NOT say specifically what they do in the pictures, how are we to know which chipset is the GPS one? A more informative answer would be to say something like:

    "Here is a link to pictures of the internals of the 8800. The GPS chipset is located ...." and then say where the GPS chipset is.

    I work professionally with computers and cell phones, and the answer given above is an uninformative one, both to professionals and amateurs.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I agree that the poster was trying to help. No need to say it wasn't helpful or uninformative.
