Default A bridge app for GPS?

Please Login to Remove!

Recently I downloaded the trial version of Magellan Compass for my Playbook. Seems like a pretty cool app, but it requires an internet connection to work. Reasonable, I guess...but if I'm lost in the boonies or driving around town trying to find an address, having to search out a Wi-Fi hotspot to use the app seems a little counterproductive.

Is it reasonable to hope for a PB GPS app that works with my phone GPS and Internet via the bridge browser? Would it be RIM or the app developer that would spearhead the creation of such a system?

I would think that it is doubtful that you will see a Bridge app for this. You likely would need to use a tethering solution.
