    No the 8100 doesn't have it, it was just added in into the menu on more recent software versions. I guess this was because other models like the 8110 do have GPS and the base software for all devices was changed.

    AFAIK, you can use external GPS device trough BT with BB Maps.
    Altough, I have no idea why if you already have external GPS. Well, I have - if external GPS has no screen...

    I have not tried that myself, so someone else?

    The 8100 will link to an external GPS receiver using the menu option you mentioned and Bluetooth. I got a GPS receiver at BuyGPSnow.com for about $70 a few months ago. It works well is very small and uses the same charger as the Pearl. With a data plan it is great. I don't use it as much as I thought I would at the time I bought it though.

    I found a use for the reveiver when I bought Intelligolf for Blackberry and now don't need to carry a range finder when I play an unfamiliar course. Pretty cool tool.

    Google Maps actually works off of the cellphone towers to which you connect, but is remarkably effective +/- 1700 meters or something like that.

    If you call being accurate to within a mile effective It is definitely better than nothing though and is really quite genius, good old Google.
