Default GPS puck/Blackberry and using Laptop display?

Please Login to Remove!

Can I use either a GPS puck or my BlackBerry 9800 and by connecting with a Mini USB or bluetooth, have the information display on my laptop?
Although I have voice street by street guidance, it would be handy to show up the route using the (much larger) laptop display.
Would anyone have any idea which gives the best GPS reception - ie the 9800 or the GPS puck?

If your wanting to show routing software or screenshots from your Berry onto a laptop, your better off using DeLorme Street Atlas, its about $80us with a GPS puck. I'm a proffesionl driver, and DeLorme is what I use for serious routing.

I'm in Australia. I don't think Delorme sell a version with Australian street maps?
