Its not on its own, but if you purchase a bluetooth GPS puck, and sign up for a service via telenav, or etc, then you can use it. I have telenav on my 8700c and another BB device, and so far it seems to work pretty good. The only downside is it won't just track me real time if I'm just riding around and want it to track me real time. Iknow it has this capaility as when following a route, it'll show my little green car making turns and stuff real time....

Just wanting to verify what to me is another significant downside. While being used with Telenav and a bluetooth GPS puck, I can't use my bluetooth headset to take calls, correct?
