    Desperately Seeking GPS Software for T-Mobile BB Curve 8320

    Advertisement



    I had Telenav on my Cingular Samsung Blackjack and was excited to see the Blackberry phones use a different version that includes live traffic. Well Telenav doesn't work on the BB Curve 8320 from T-Mobile. I am not sure if it works on other curves. I have a bluetooth GPS piece I used with my Samsung Blackjack and that works well with Google and Blackberry maps but I want a real GPS solution. Wayfinder doesn't work either. I even called Telenav for support and they said it won't work with the T-Mobile BB Curve right now. I am not opposed to buying software like TomTom if I know it will work.

    Telenav V5.1.0.54 works fine with TMO 8320.
    Download the ATT 8300 version from Telenav Site

    I second this. I used it on my 8300 Curve unlocked on Tmo, and continue to use it on my 8320.

    WOW!!! I called tech support and they said no way.

    I had previously tried it with other versions.

    This is great Thank you so much it is working now.

    8320 Curve from TMobile does not have internal GPS. The Rogers 8310 Curve or ATT and TMos 8800 have internal GPS... sorry.. all the software in the world wont help you get GPS on the 8320 without a GPS puck add on. I had the 8310 frist from Rogers and honestly...the WiFi is much more useful than the GPS... cool but not as useful. Especially since the GPS wont work if youre on the phone when the EDGE goes down.

    You have to buy a Bluetooth GPS - they run $100 or so. The consensus is that the Globalsat ones are just dandy.

    I stated I have a GPS piece.

    Telenav worked for me yesterday when I installed the AT&T Curve version but today I am getting "Telenav failed to sync with server"

    Anyone know what that's about?

    Thanks

    Are you able to get Google Maps to work, or any third party map (so we can figure out the issue of Telenav not working)? I'd look at make sure that the APN is set right for ATT.

    Blackberry maps works with the GPS
    Google Maps works with the GPS
    Telenav worked yesterday
    Today it works with the GPS and can display an accurate compas, but as we know telenav logs into their server and sends data back and forth. This is not working for me today.

    My questions is simple as I am trying to determine if it's a problem with my account or telenav.

    Is anyone else having a problem with Telenav. To test this start mapping a route and choose refresh to update your saved locations. If it works you are not having the problem. If it doesn't you are.

    Thanks

    I think I fixed my own problem: The only thing that changed yesterday was that I added a password to my device. I am not sure but maybe this affected permissions. I reset the permissions for the application and now it is working again. Telenav still officially doesn't support the T-Mobile BB Curve.
