Question GPS mod for an 8320?

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to modify an 8320 to enable GPS? I never use wi-fi but could totally put GPS to good use. T-mobile only offers the 8320 to their customers apparently

The only way is a separate bluetooth GPS receiver. Pretty small and portable. Google for them.

Nice! And then what app would you recommend to use? I usually use the Google Maps app... I see it has a "Bluetooth GPS" option but cannot find any decides, obviously. If I had said Bluetooth GPS keychain, would I be able to further utilize the program or need to download something completely different?

Check out the GPS and Maps Section for reviews of most of the map applications available for the BB.

+1 -- try several out. There really isn't a holy grail of GPS apps. I really like Telenav. YMMV.
