    You will need either a Bluetooth or USB GPS Puck and a GPS Satellite Navagation package. There are several packages that work in the US, BB Maps is a free one provided by RIM. I don't know of any that work in the UK, but perhaps someone will be able to help. The 8700 really doesn't have enough memory to be able to use a Standalone App.

    Hope this Help

    google maps I believe works well - it has a gps option but I have not used it. I have used it for directions and its spot on

    Check out the GPS Software comparisons at http://brentmedearis.tripod.com/blackberry

    I use TeleNav and Blackberry Maps (Free) on my 8700c with a BT GPS receiver
