You do realize that the 8700 doesn't have GPS, so unless you have a GPS puck, it is not going to be very accurate. GoogleMaps does use cell tower triangulation to locate you within 1700 to 2500 meters, but that isn't very useful for navigation purposes, IMHO,

Also, memory is somewhat limited in the 8700 so as it downloads map data, it could go haywire as well.
