    BBCool reviewed this back in beta, and it's pretty cool. Works with Google Maps, and tracks your position over designated intervals as small as every 5 minutes.

    As for dongles, I don't think Blip works with 'em just yet. When the beta was running the 8800 was the only supported model.

    Hey that was some of the negative publicity Google Earth had to deal with when it first hit the market. Esp most people's homes could be viewed by anyone who uses Google Earth without and opt-in or opt out options. Every now and then they add exclusions.

    At least with these apps you don't HAVE to be included. To each his own.

    Re: Blip for BlackBerry - Geo-social interaction

    Hi from Blackline GPS, makers of Blip.

    Just to clarify a few points for you.

    -We use BlackBerry maps, not google maps on your phone. We chose BlackBerry Maps as it uses less data.

    -Supported devices include all with internal GPS, the 8800 Series, Curve (8130), and newer Pearl (8130, 8110)

    -Intervals are 15min, 30min, 1 hour, 2 hour and publish on demand.

    -On devices without internal GPS, and where you are running 4.2.1 or better, external GPS should work if you can select it in your Advanced->GPS settings, although we haven't tested it.

    And if you have one of our standalone GPS Snitch devices it is fully integrated so you can track them as well.


    I just noticed this message too, If you get uncaught exceptions, you are not running 4.2.1 or better.

    Re: Blip for BlackBerry - Geo-social interaction

    I keep getting an error that I can't open the page. error 403 forbidden.

    I then downloaded the JAD file from the site to my PC and moved it to my media card. Opened it and gives me the error that Download failed. 907 Invalid COD File not found error.

    Carrier is Telus. BIS and unlimited data! So that shouldn't be an issue. I've resent service books and pulled the battery again. deleted the browser history and cookies, etc.

    I've tested on another Telus BlackBerry and got program to install and do everything perfectly.

    Suggestions?
    Gave up on Rogers! Went to Telus!

    That's true, at&t blocks gps usage with blackberry maps, that's why I loaded a different OS other than at&t
