Default 8520 Better read the specs before you buy

Well, as I might have expected, I have dicsovered another major weakness in the 8520. I can no longer use my TelNav GPS program. This program was the the most outstanding travel tool I had ever found and completly replaced my Tom Tom Nav system in my car. Hence the 8520 is incompatable with this advance navagation tool. I missed this detail while studing the phone specs. The ATT Maps program works but does not "Active track" your location and has to be used in you hand to see where you are going. Secondly it provides no active instructions. In other words I need to reinstall my Tom Tom, which I sold. Good grief. Does anybody know if BB has a 3rd party program that might enable the 8520 as a GPS reciever.
