Default Software for external GPS receiver on Bold

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,

I have a new BB Bold and I'm searching a software to use the bold with an external gps receiver. I paired by bluetooth my bold with receiver and know my position but I can't use a map.

I don't have the BIS or BES service due to the price in Belgium.

The version of Desktop Manager is V4.6.

Thanks for help me in my search.

You need some kind of data plan to use any kind of mapping feature on your bold

You're using th wrong tool for th job.
Try a google search for 'GPS software'

Software does not give you a data plan. You need that from your service provider - I know it's very expensive. That's why you need to forget using maps on your bold and just use a dedicated GPS device that includes all maps. You don't need any data plan with those.
