Thee is no app for GPS. What you need a map program. BBMaps is there, just difficult to get to.

Try downloading GoogleMaps. You need a BB data plan for any of the map applications to work however.

Did you make sure that somehow the icon isnt hidden? Also Google maps is IMO the best free GPS out for BlackBerry's.

Your SatNav icon could be hidden in either your Applications sub-folder or your Downloads sub-folder.

These are separate folders you'll see when you're on your home screen and hit the menu key.

As for syncing with Outlook, you should know the Blackberry doesn't sync email with Outlook. It will sync Addresses, Calendar, Tasks, and Notes. But mail is sent to your Blackberry through the mail servers at RIM, and operates completely independently of how Outlook gets your email. RIM gets new mail from your ISP and sends that new mail to your Blackberry. Outlook goes to your ISP's mail servers and fetches new mail as well, but the two methods are independent of each other.

To sync addresses, tasks, calendar, and notes you use the Blackberry Desktop Software. When you choose to sync for the first time it will walk you through the setup for each thing you choose to sync.
