Is this possible?
Work is giving me an 8830 and I currently have an 8120.
I use the 8120 for uploading photos and all that jazz. I tried to get the company to get me an 8330, which I felt was the superior device and it can do all the stuff my 8120 can do (swap wifi for GPS obviously) just with a full QWERTY and more megs on the ROM. C'est la vie.
So, since I can't take pics with the 8830, I was wondering if I'd be able to use it as a GPS device for my 8120.

Thanks in advance!

No, the GPS in the device won't work that way. Also, if the device is from Verizon, you won't be able to use the GPS in it at all unless they pay vor Verizon Navigator, either.
