    Blackberry Maps on 8703e

    Advertisement



    Hey,

    So im using the 8703e from sprint, and im trying to figure out the functionality of the internal GPS. I downloaded, MG Maps and BB Maps. MG Maps doesnt display correct information at all, and is painfully slow. BB Maps on the other hand, works but very sparatically. Last night i got it working, and i loved it, but this morning down the same road - it wouldnt tell me what st i was on, just kinda hung there. Any suggestions to make it work better?

    If you want to have a true gps application you can get Garmin Mobile or Telenav. Both work excellent.

    I would get telenav - but i dont really want to pay the monthly fee. Is there one associated with garmin mobile? and do both work without a BT puck?

    They both work without a puck, there is no need for that when you have internal gps enabled. Both Garmin and Telenav are $10/month.
