I performed a search for this issue but couldn't seem to find a resolution. I am using Beyond411 v4.20 and am having issues with the search results when using my GPS receiver. I have a Pearl 8100 with the GPSlim 240 Bluetooth receiver. The program detects that I have a GPS receiver but the search results are showing results from North Carolina. I am in Georgia. I have tried refreshing the Bluetooth receiver, as well as deleting it and readding it. Still gives me incorrect results for my location.



The receiver does properly locate me when using Google Maps. Is there something I am missing?

Mines, Berry411 keeps saying there is no places found in my area. This is searching for Walgreens in the city of Denver, CO. We have a Walgreens on almost every corner... I haven't seen Phil around but someone said he is on a new business venture. I wish him luck and will give window mobile a try.

I searched and ended up with a product called Live Search v1.5.2860.13336 from Live Search (Blackberry friendly link)

It looks like a Microsoft product. Is this what you guys were describing? The GPS works well with this program even down in my basement. Also, I like that it sorts the results by distance from where you are.

This will be nice but I still hope Phil can fix Berry411. I guess I'm a loyalist...

Default looking into this

Thanks for the bug report, I will investigate. I may need your help to verify a fix- my 8800 with GPS died and my new curve doesn't have it.

Anything you need Phil just ask and it shall be given. I've been using Microsoft live and to be honest, I miss my berry 411...

One other thing I noticed using Live Search Phil, I don't know if this helps or not...

There are times when you go to do a look up and you get a screen that says, "No GPS Location. Current GPS location unavailable. Use the last known position?" There we have a selection to go back or have it use the previous (stored) GPS position.

The no GPS screen pops up immediately so I don't know if there is a flag somewhere that says when GPS is avail or not but when it is not it is able to use the stored or last known position. This could be home when I am at work or visa versa. Not sure what that's all about but I thought it might help...

Also, it would sure be nice if you can make the hits display in order of closest to furthest. I don't know if you can sort them by the distance field but boy would that make Berry411 that ultimate of all ultimates...

I was having this same problem. It worked fine for a while and then one day wouldnt find anything near my work location. I was running 4.20. I removed it and downloaded it again. I got ver 4.20.5 and it has been working OK since then. Not sure if because of 4.20.5 or just because I reloaded it, but I would give that a try.

When I had 4.20 and checked it said I had the latest version.

My mind may be going here, but I swear one of the earlier versions of Berry411 did sort them by distance, but the current one definitely doesn't - and I agree, would be a lot nicer if it did.

Sometimes Windows Live Search has a problem "seeing" the GPS. I've seen that as well.

It has a great UI for the phone, minimizes typing and is easy to use one-handed, and I find it gives very complete search results.

Google maps has a little more depth that is very nice to have in some cases (like menus for restaurants) but WLS is the best for quick and easy results.

I'm not to thrilled over the WLS UI. It takes too many steps or clicks to get the result. No auto complete and you have to hit the menu to see past searches. Not too cool for a guy behind the wheel of a car.

I also don't like the directions it gives. Not sure who they are getting them from but they really suck. Example, I am looking at one that says Turn Right onto I-70 Bus loop (US-287)... Took me a while to figure out this meant turn right on Colfax Ave. No where was their a sign that said I-70 Bus loop (US-287). I also noticed the directions are usually wrong and will not take you to the place you searched.

Further I noticed if you go strait to map, it doesn't come up in a useful resolution. The start and stop points are usually on top of each other so you have to zoom it in a few times to see where you're going. This in itself is not too bad except again, this is a person who is driving while using this thing. I'd like to keep my eye on the road which means little interaction as possible with my help...

Last, I see no place to give feedback for WLS even though it says Beta. It could be just me but I can't find a place to let them know the troubles I am having or to give suggestions. Seems like they don't care?

We need berry411 Phil, please I have an 8800 and I'm willing to help troubleshoot, let's face it, there is google maps, mapquest, etc etc. but none is as fast as beyond411.

Default Berry411

Where can I find Berry411 for my Blackberry Curve 8310 (Red). I went to the web site and I downloaded the file but it has the extension of .jab and my BB did not recognize it. I need the extension with .xlm (or something like that)

PM me your email address and I can send you an invite. I don't recall the app being hard to find... I think it's thebogles.com and if you add /berry411.jad on the device it installs OTA.

Wanting to kill Beyond411!!!

I just upgraded from a Curve 8300 to an 8310 with built in GPS and it seems like Beyond411 doesn't like me anymore. When I did YellowPages searches from my "Home" address is works fine, but with my GPS setup as my location is gets NO results!!!

I know others are having GPS problems. Any suggestions?

I'm using the latest version. 4.20.5
