    BlackBerry Curve 8310 with GPS - How To Get More Functionality

    Advertisement



    One of the benefits of Blackberry 8310 is built-in GPS module.
    Would you like to know what GPS can really give you? Would you like to take full advantage of this capability?

    What GPS is.
    GPS stands for Global Positioning System. It is based on the network of satellites that continuously transmit coded information, which makes it possible to precisely identify locations on earth by measuring distance from the satellites. It had been developed as a military application, but, fortunately, in the 1980s it became available for civilians. You can use Global Positioning System easily and free of charge. All you need is a GPS receiver – and it is built in BlackBerry 8310!

    What advantage can you take of GPS?
    You can enjoy many interesting functions on your Blackberry, for example:
    * record tracks of your trips anywhere on the Earth from your BlackBerry. Your tracks will be traced on Google Maps and stored in an online archive or in your BlackBerry.
    * show to your friends the instant position on a map when you are traveling
    * map digital photos precisely at a place they were taken. It doesn’t matter if the photos are captured with your Blackberry or with another digital camera.

    How to?
    Step 1. You just need to download GPSed Blackberry application.
    You can download it over-the-air at: http://wap.gpsed.com
    or download it to your PC at http://gpsed.com/mobile and install it via cable.

    Step 2. Sign up to GPSed online service at:

    Hello PacketRat,

    You can uncheck this functionality and no one will know where you are, still you will be available to write tracks and post them to the online archive at http://gpsed.com
