not that i'm saying you're wrong, but it is my understanding that GPS is only functional with BB maps for verizon users. some people have reported that they are subscribed to VZ navigator, and are able to run 3rd party apps with because this paid subscription unlocks GPS on their phone. otherwise, you have to buy an external GPS that can run with your BB. i don't wait to pay for the VZ nav subscription (nor to i want to pay for/lug around an external GPS), so to my knowledge, i'm SOL until verizon lifts this stupid lock.
is your friend subscribed to VZ nav? that's the only possible thing i can think of. if i'm wrong, please point me in the direction of some threads/articles relating to this so i can finally get my GPS up and running!
