Default GPS + Pearl = Where?

Please Login to Remove!

I can't seem to find anything about GPS on my Pearl except in the BlackBerry Maps options. Not only that, but it says "GPS Device - None" and there is no other option?

What gives?

I thought all Pearls come standard with GPS capability? Am I missing something?

I have a brand new Pearl (1 month old) from Cingular.

Yeah... After doing some searching on the forums (which I should have done before I posted), I found that you have to have a GPS Receiver (which sucks).
