Default 8830 and Moto Q Bluetooth GPS (verizon)

Please Login to Remove!

I am currently looking at the Blackberry 8830 and the Motorola Q as I want a phone that I can use a bluetooth GPS system on. My friend has Cingular (AT&T) and runs Destinator with a HOLUX GPS 236 receiver. I have been reading a bit about how Verizon has disabled GPS on the 8830? is that the Bluetooth GPS programs that everyone is talking about or something totally different?

I know the Q runs windows mobile so It would probably be easy to put programs on it for the bluetooth GPS to work. But I really like the looks of the Blackberry a lot more, so will the blackberry run a GPS that isnt verizons?

Also can you mess around with blackberry's or are they like apple computers and you really cant do to much to them?

Oh yeah and is there a future model coming out for Verizon of the 8830 with a Camera in it?
