    Google Maps and GPS

    Advertisement



    I have a 8100 Pearl. It comes with Google Map installed. I also have a Pharos iGPS-BT receiver.
    2 questions... Can I use these two together? How do I get them to work together?
    I am a little 'slow' at this. So if you can give be 'novice' answers.
    Thanks..

    Turn on the GPS puck.
    Go to the bluetooth setup icon on the bb.
    Search for new devices and sync them.
    You will be asked for a pairing code which is usually 1234 but not sure for this one.
    Now you will see the puck listed, hit the menu key and open the properties on the device, the puck.
    Make sure the permisions are set to trusted.
    Save these settings.
    Now go to the options\advanced options\gps
    Select the puck as the GPS device and now you should be good to go.

    Turn on the puck and wait till it gets a lock and then turn on your mapping software and you shd see your location.

    Hope this is correct and is of some help.
