Whoever told you the 8700 had GPS was way off.
BB models 88xx, 8310, 8110 do have gps built in, which will work on Rogers.
And you will still need a BB Data Plan to get the maps, unless you just want to look at longitudes and lats.
I don't know what Rogers charges for a data plan, but in my area (Boston, MA) AT&T charges $30/month. JSanders...you could buy the data plan, use Google Maps for the BB and get pretty close to good directions, if you didn't mind missing your destination by 1/4 mile or so. Alternatively, you could save the monthly data plan $$, and just spend the money on a real GPS unit.
