It's a pretty common misunderstanding. There are no built-in GPS apps or functionality on the BB (well, BB Maps comes with some carriers). All you get is positioning data (i.e. latitude and longitude) from the receiver. Everything else is dependent of the GPS app that you decide to use with your BB.

It's like on a PC. I think you're thinking of the BB's GPS functionality like a stand-alone device like a Garmin, TomTom etc.

The Bold won't do any of the things that you're asking about out-of-the-box (just like any GPS-equipped BB available right now). You really need to specify the GPS app that you're thinking of using with the Bold.

I highly recommend reading up in the GPS forum.
