    Your phone (8320) doesn't have a GSP sensor on it. You can get a GPS puck that receives GPS signals and use that in conjunction with your 8320 - is that what you want to do?

    You can buy a device called a GPS puck that can receive GPS satellite signals and connect it to your BB via bluetooth. THen you can get GPS directions, not voice commands though, through your BB as long as you have a carrier signal. IT's very handy but, since there is no voice command using this technique, you should have a non-driver reading the directions - either you if you're not driving or a companion if you are. Gsat makes one of the "pucks" - a number of others are available too. Does that help explain it?

    Thanks, gixxer. There are many others too, db3nz. Some are about the size of a hockey puck, hence the name, and there are others that fit on a keychain. I'm sure if you Google OR look on CNET, etc. you'll find a number of choices. Probably most of them will do the job well. Good luck.
