    GPS on the 8320: where can I find it?

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone. Just got the gold 8320 from tmobile. Very nice little thing. In maps, I am trying to locate my GPS so I can find where I am. It comes built in, right? I don't know what everyone is talking about when they say "puck."

    Thank you!

    I think (but I"m not 100% sure) the 8310 is the only Curve with a built in GPS receiver and the 8320 is the only Curve that can pull Wi-Fi signals

    You are correct Justyn. The 8310 is the only 83series with built in GPS currently. You will have to use a bluetooth GPS reciever to get GPS on an 8320. A second option (not as accurate but pretty close) is to use the new Google Maps with the cellular triangulation built in. It will use information provided by the cell tower to get an approximation of where you are at. Personally, it has been a pretty good source for using for maps on my 8700c.

    Loving the new GMaps myself. Hey Amigotek, maybe you know this. But in Google Maps it has a GPS function and when I was playing around with it the other day, I noticed it had listed in it a couple phones I linked up with bluetooth... do you think if I paired my Pearl with an 8310 then went on Google Maps I could use the Curve's built in GPS receiver to piggyback to my Pearl's maps?

    It may be something to try, pairing with something else with a gps receiver may yield some results.
