Hello, I have pearl 8130 with telus.

TeleNav is by far the best BB GPS program available. It is $10/month, has turn by turn directions, great up to date maps and pretty darn snappy.

You should email the company and ask if it is available on Telus,

Voice directions on your GPS phone: TeleNav

Mapquest has GPS w/turn-by-turn voice commands for about $5 a month, and is worth a look.

I use an older free version on my VZW Pearl...should work fine on your Pearl as well. See the GPS section for the thread about the older free Mapquest software.

how did you get the GPS to work with your pearl redflea? GPS should be disabled for anything other than VZNav

Sorry for the confusion...I'm using it w/my Pearl and the Freedom Keychain 2000 GPS...since it's on my keychain I never even think about it any more.

Not me! I wish I had figured out how to unlock the GPS in my Pearl...but I make no such voodoo claims.
