Only an external GPS receiver while enabling Bluetooth.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 8700g: BlackBerry8700/4.2.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

The current generation Pearl does not have a GPS receiver in it. So, like BillyBuff said, you will need an external bluetooth receiver.

You can check the GPS forum as I believe there are different reviews and opinions there.
