Options > Advanced > GPS.

There you can refresh or change the GPS settings.

You will use BBMaps, Google Maps or another application for mapping your GPS location.

DM is Desktop Manager. You use it to access your Blackberry device.

Is your subscription for a blackberry specific plan or general internet plan? Without a BB plan, you will not be able to use BB specific features.
