Default Keeping Bluetooth GPS selected

Please Login to Remove!

Since Alltel/Verizon has seen fit to lock up my GPS, I got a Bluetooth GPS unit which works like a charm. It works beautifully with Garmin. But when I start BB Maps, it reverts to the handset GPS receiver, which is annoying. I dont' know if it does that with Google or not - have to download it I guess.

Is there a way I can prevent this behavior?

Go to Options>Advanced Options>GPS. Set the GPS Data Source to the bluetooth GPS unit. Click on the back button and then Save.
