newb question / help
 
Hey everyone , I just recieved my Curve last night.
I was wondering what all do i have to get for me to have GPS function . I was considering the mapquest monthly thing, but it says for our model we have to have a external gps thing?

what all do i have to get for it to work , and are there any other routes i can go to get my gps up and going on the T-mobile cure?

thanks.

The T-Mobile Curve (8320) does not come with an internal GPS receiver. If you want GPS functionality then you will need to purchase an Bluetooth external GPS receiver and pair it with the unit.

Personally I have the Holux GPSlim 240 model and it works excellent. You can check the following threads to find reviews on other products:

As far as hardwar is concerned, yes. Then you can use a program to take advantage of the GPS like Google Maps or TeleNav.
