The 8700 does not have a GPS receiver built in. You have to have a separate bluetooth GPS Puck. I don't know if your "Spot" program will work with just any GPS Puck.

Hope this helps.

I have an 8700c and Spot works for me. I am using the Pharos Bluetooth iGPS.

In my limited workings with the program, I find it to be way too slow loading the maps, and the interface is horrible. Not intuitive at all.

The demo only lets you play for about 10 mins. I got frustrated with it and never turned it back on.

I will stick with TeleNav until someone comes out with a free Navigation software for the BlackBerry.

I wish the new Google Maps Mobile had GPS capability, then it would truly rock!

Give them time. Google is leading the industry right now with developing programs.
