You should have BBMaps on your device already.

Google Maps: http://www.google.com/gmm (from your BB's Browser.)

TeleNav: http://ota.telenav.com/ota/tn (from your BB's Browser $10/month)

For GPS postion you'll need a Bluetooth GPS receiver (sold separately)

What would you recommend as a decent GPS receiver?

I'm using this one. Hangs on my keyring and works great. I recommend using GPS pucks with version 4.2.0.xx of the 8100 handheld code. There are major issues with this (and all) bluetooth GPS pucks in 4.2.1.xx OS's.
