Default GPS Software for BB 7100G on AT&T ???

Please Login to Remove!

hi guys,
I just switched over to AT&T from Nextel.
when i was on nextel i used a 7100i and i used the Telenav software.

they do not seem to support the 7100G for AT&T, ... is there a GPS software that I can use on the
7100G ?

thanks,
Kevin Rea

you need to get an external GPS puck. The trouble being i do not think the 7100 can link via bluetooth to a gps. It does not have a built in GPS like the 7100i

I have a buddy who was using a puck with a 7100t and bb maps and google maps. Don't know about the g model, but would it be any different than the t?

the software is identical on those two, or close to it. It should link to the puck with no problem.
