So, if I start the GPS tracking on Blackberry Maps, I'll see the streets coming up as I expected. But the problem is, if I accidentally or intentionally pan the map, then all of a sudden the tracking is screwed up. I saw once how to resume the tracking (I think), but it's been awhile. What I want to do is to be able to pan the map occasionally so I can see what's coming up further down the road, but then I want to quickly tell the BB Maps to start tracking my actual position again. Sure, I can go to the menu and stop gps tracking and then restart it, but that's not practical while you're trying to drive. With Google Maps it's easy, just press 0 and it takes you back to where you are, tracking you. But with BB Maps, I can't find how to do this? Is there a way?

Thanks
