Keychain GPS for your non-GPS BlackBerry - from Freedom Input
Two items everyone picks up - in addition to maybe a handbag or briefcase - are their car keys and thier mobile/cell 'phone.
It is capable of connecting simultaneously to up to up to 51 satellite channels and has a solid working time of 10hrs. Charge it up in your car or at home. Ideal for connecting wirelessly to your BlackBerry using Bluetooth technology.
The device is compatible with all of the wide selection of software packages now available at low cost for direct download onto the handset, including:- The AA, Active Pilot, BlackBerry Maps, CoPilot Live 6, Destinator 6, Gate 5,Google Maps, Mapquest, Memory Map, Navigation Mobile, Navman, Nokia/Smart2Go, Navicor, Route 66, Spot, Telenav, Wayfinder.
Interesting concept ... wonder how well it works and could be an alternate for Verizon users whose GPS is locked out on the device and they dont want to pay the $10 for VZNav.
IM BACK w/ a new BB 8220!
Do you have the need for speed? Then drive it like you stole it!

That genius. Travel in your pocket just like your phone.
looks good...i have a similar one...holux m1200 thats slightly bigger than a usb thumb drive which works great!
Slightly smaller than my Holux GPSlim 240 but I like the keychain form factor.
This is pretty cool item. I've thinking about when/if the Bold comes out for T-Mobile I would get something like this to give my wife with my old Curve. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
This isnt the first of its kind, so the real question is what kind of GPS receiver is embedded in this thing. If it's the SiRFstar III then you can pretty much rest assured it will work in your pocket whenever you need it after a quick satellite sync. If it's anything less, like often what is integrated into your phone, you could end up having to keep your keys on the dash just to get any signal at all.
well since keys go in your pocket, it would assumed that the techs who made the device made it strong enought to work in your pocket
Sorrow is tranquility remembered in emotion.
Techs taking into consideration for real world application? lol that will be the day
It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.
External GPS for VZW Curve?
Are you currently using an external GPS with your 8330? If so, are you using it with Google Maps? Any other applications?
Check the Visiontac VGPS-700 aslo, its pretty small, slightly thinner but heavier and boasts 8-12 hours operation time.
Spec on this;
46 x 32 x 14.5 mm. (1.81 x 1.26 x 0.58 ins.)
22gms. 0.77 ozs.
Spec on Visiontac;
53x 32 x 13.9 mm. (2.1 x 1.2 x 0.5 ins.)

if you download a gps app for your BB does it charge your phone (im assuming so but you never know)
I'd pay anything that would discourage Verizon from locking out features and forcing users to use their software.
