OK well I was Also having problems with this and came across a few others ... BlackBerry Curve forum
Getting 3rd Party GPS programs to work on VZW!
OK well I was Also having problems with this and came across a few others posts about how to do it but no one seemed to know exactly how to perform the task. So here is a step by step on how to go about running those apps that everyone seems to not be able to run. I know this kind of sucks as you have to have VZnav first but VZNAV is a great program so swallowing the 9.99 they charge for it is not to hard. anyway once you have VZNAV
#1 start it up, then go to maps and select it.
#2 scroll down to follow me and select it.
#3 wait for it to find your location.
#4 close the screen now "don’t close the program out just back out and leave it running.
#5 Now select the program in which you could not use before IE: Trimble or whatever GPS program you wanted and watch as the GPS comes alive!
So it sucks that you have two battery munching programs running but at least it works for now until VZW pulls their heads out and gives us what everyone else has for free.. GOODLUCK!
