Actually none of the carriers offer GPS service. at&t rebrands and resells Telenav but it's a GPS app (subscription), not a service. You don't need to get your GPS app from your carrier. You can use any GPS app for the BB. See the GPS forum for a complete list.
GPS service is from the network of GPS satellites. The carriers have nothing to do with it.

I'd also recommend checking the GPS forum. IIRC the Freedom receiver discussed there is fob-sized.
Oh wait -- the review for it is in the BBF Review forum: Review: Freedom Input Keychain GPS 2000 Bluetooth Receiver

The cool thing about Google Maps is that it will use a GPS receiver, if available, and will triangulate if there is no receiver or if the receiver is unable to get a satellite fix.
