Is this because the GPS is "locked" excpet for BB Maps?

Google maps runs fine...crappy location probably due to they are not using GPS only triangulation.

I have tried some 3rd party apps and they can't seem to tap into the GPS signal either.

I am looking for an app which will create and store a GPS track that I can export as a GPX file for later use. Any way to do that in BB Maps?
