That sucks that it doesn't have GPS. I wanted to use Mologogo on my TMO 7105t when I figured out I was not GPS capable. I thought it was federal law that for 911 purposes every new phone activated after say June 1, 2005 had to be GPS enabled. I know on Verizon you can't activate an old phone that is not GPS capable and if you already have an account with a GPS phone you can't swap ESNs to use an older non-GPS phone. Only way you can do it is if you still have a non-GPS phone then you can swap to another non-GPS model. I have Cingular blue for voice still and haven't heard anything about the GPS policy with them yet but hey i'm GSM so I will put my SIM in whatever I please.

hey domenic00, i am trying to hook up my 7105t also. i purchased a holux 240blue tooth reciever on ebay for $89. the BB paired with it no problems but the GPS locator can not be installed as it has an unrecognisable file extension. As soon as i find software to run the reciever i will let you know.

I have used the Holux 240 on a 7105T with bbmaps. It works ok when traveling at slow speeds since the the downloading of your updated position does not catch up in high speed situation like driving in a car at more than 40-50MPH.
