    Curve and GPS Software

    Advertisement



    I was wondering if the Curve comes with any GPS software (free). I have Google Maps, but would like to try something else. I thought there was something called BB Maps but I can't find it on my Curve. I bought the Freedom Mini receiver--pretty cool item.

    I currently use Google Maps, BB Maps and Wayfinder 7. BB Maps is my favorite. It loads the fastest, uses less memory and is spot on with directions and GPS tracking.

    If you need a copy of BBMaps you can download it for free http://gagnews.com/blog/dlu_blackbery/

    How are you getting gps tracking with that software?? I have tried google maps, bbmaps, and telnav with no gps luck. I don't want to have to get a gps puck to make my phone work. Are you having to use a puck to get gps tracking with your software??

    If you just have a Curve (8300) then you will need to purchase a BT puck to get real GPS. If you have an 8310 the GPS is built-in and you wouldn't have to purchase a BT puck.

    I bought a cheap Holux M-1000 puck from Amazon and it works great. It was only around $50
