I've found a bunch of programs that supposedly work with the Blackberry GPS - although most are designed for the 7520. None of them seem to get position information back form the A-GPS in the 8703e from Verizon.
What I'd love to find is a program that would just spit back the raw data from the GPS, without worrying about mapping, for the moment. That way we could be sure if this thig is actually working.
(I'm actually beginning to wonder if the GPS is working, but maybe Verizon has mangled the code such that it spits back latitude, longitude and altitude all equal to 0 - just a theory though)
Here are some of the programs I've tried:
- HelloWorld (GPS) from www .handango.com/PlatformProductDetail.jsp?siteId=1&platformId=5&pr oductId=177468&R=177468
- Spot from www .handango.com/PlatformProductDetail.jsp?siteId=1&platformId=5&pr oductId=177468&R=177468
- WayViewer from www .wayviewer.de/en/index.html - never got that one to work
- J2MEMap from j2memap.landspurg.net/
Other interesting Mapping Stuff
MG Maps - www .mgmaps.com/index.php - keep checking their news page, they are suposedly adding support for Bluetooth connected GPS receivers on Blackberry's
Google Maps for Mobile - www .google.com/gmm/index.html?utm_source=us-et-more&utm_medium=et&utm_campaign=gmm - No GPS support, but still pretty cool
