    4.2 update question

    Advertisement



    If i decide to update my 8700g to the 4.2 OS, there is a question that comes to mind: On some websites, it says the 4.2 has GPS. Now, will this update give my 8700 an internal GPS allowing for telenav, mapquest mobile, etc. Or, will this just enable my GPS which would require me to buy a GPS receiver to hook my BB to>?

    Thanks.

    The 8700g does not have internal gps. Nothing can change that. The 8703 does. You can buy an external puck for your 8700g, and the 4.2 software will support it.

    you can purchase an external receiver.... only 8800 & 8300 has inbuilt trans-receiver.

    As above stated, the 4.2 upgrade is a software update, won't do hardware. But you do have options.
