However, it's $9.95 a month but is well worth it if you need that capability. I have it and love it.
John Clark, you do realize he's talking about the T-mobile 8320?

To clarify things, you can download google maps and use your internet connection to manually find your location. However the 8320 does NOT have GPS built in, rather it has wifi. RIM wouldn't fit both GPS and Wifi into the same curve device, most likely for marketing purposes IMO.

However, you can hook up a bluetooth GPS puck to the device and use that for GPS and then John Clark's post would ring very true.
