    Navigation Options

    Advertisement



    I just purchased a 8100 and I have a basic question about navigation software. I had an IPAQ which I used with a bluetooth GPS and software to use as a basic in-car nav system. What is a good system that would be able to work with the 8100? Any suggestions are appreciated.....

    Jkrums, as you have a lot of views but no answers. I am giving to bump your post. I have seen a lot of mention of telenav on here. Do a search for that and see if you can get answer. I know there are Navigation system users here, they must not be on right now.

    jkrums, Welcome to PinStack.

    If you still have the Bluetooth GPS, try it with BB Maps that should be loaded on your BB. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Re: Navigation Options

    thanks everyone for all the welcomes!! I am really excited about this. I have seen soo many different options out there on preliminary search, and the help is really appreciated. I have a bluetooth GPS and I will try it with the builtin maps on the BB. I guess I overlooked that. When you come from the world of windows I guess you don't expect things at actually be there. haha. anyway, The program itself looks pretty extensive. I just did not know if there is anything better. I will be sure to post what happens and how it works and all. Figure other people might be able to benefit......

    Thumbs up Re: Navigation Options

    The Holux GPS didnt even come close to comparison with the GlobalSat 359. I did some research on several sites including this one and found someone that tested several systems including these two. Based on those results I decided to go for the GlobalSat 359 which I'm happy now that I did. This unit is very thin and extremely accurate. I bought it new on eBay. It lists for $149 and can be bought for "Buy-it-Now" for $104. If you want to bid for one like I did from scratch, it can be had for as little as $65-$75 + shipping. I got mine for $84 total w/shipping and got it in 3 days. I highly recommend it!
