    Q: Can I use my BB 8100 as a GPS receiver

    Advertisement



    On the tin it says - GPS.
    How to use my BB 8100 as a GPS device if that's possible.Do I need an additional hardware?

    Also , what does the "turn wireless ON" mean - I have a wireless internet at home , but nothing seems to happen when I enable the wireless on my BB 8100.

    Thanks in advance

    "Turn Wireless On" actually turns the phone section of the unit on. As for GPS, it is Bluetooth GPS capable meaning with a Bluetooth GPS reciever paired to the unit it will allow you to use mapping software with real time indications of your location.

    Thanks a lot ,

    so you mean the "Turn Wireless On/Off" just turns on and off the device as a mobile phone - not a big deal I think...

    Yes, that should work for the Pearl but haven't used a GPS receiver personally.
