WHat you see is what you have. You need a map application to turn the GPS data (lat/long) into useful information. You can download BBMaps or GoogleMaps, those are free and offer very basic mapping functions. However, you MUST have a BB dataplan to use them as it only downloads the section it is using and keeps downloading as you move. Map apps or data cannot be stored on the SD card or in internal memory..

Welcome aboard the BB Forums, Kjartan87!

I'm afraid you can't set up the GPRS manually. It's carrier, and location-specific related. Sometimes you'll get the following, gsm, GSM, gprs, GPRS, edge, EDGE.

See here for details:
