    how is the 8310 GPS

    Advertisement



    I am thinking of getting the 8310, have a pearl and want a bigger screen and the built in GPS. Before I take the leap want to know is it any good?
    Any feed back will be very helpfull. I have used amaze (see thread in 3rd part software) and had problems keep the connection to my GPS puck. Hope the built in one solves this issue.
    Thanks

    Well the 8310 hasn't been released yet. Releasing Thursday 10-11, so maybe check back after that with some of those who have gotten one ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Is it definite that the 8310 will be out by thursday the 11th? Or is it just another rumor? I want the phone sooooooo bad and can't wait. This is a bad habit of keeping people in the "dark"...........

    I have had an 8310 for over a month now. I find that bb maps and telenav are a lot quicker in picking up the the sat's than my 8800

    i used the amaze software on my 8310 and it works great. Rerouting is perfect. I tried the gps on the 8800 and it's not as good as the 8310, on the units i tested anyways.

    Re: how is the 8310 GPS

    Hi sTYZ,
    The problem i have with amAze is using a pearl and a GPS puck it looses the sats if i get a sms or take a call. It also will not allow me to also connect to my are kit, bluetooth parrot, at the same time.
    Have you had any issues yet like this or the fact that the GPS is built in solves them?
    If it does then i know the phone im getting.
    Thanks

    It's out in Europe, it was initially released in Germany. Not sure of all the European countries that have it, but I think the UK has it as well now. That being said, AT&T is supposed to be the first US carrier to have it.
