For #1, assuming you have your BB syncing to Outlook, and you've entered in PINs for people in their address book entry:
In Outlook, go to contacts, and click on advanced find. Click on the advanced tab, click on Field, then select Miscellaneous Fields, then User Field 1 (PIN gets stored here). For condition, select "is not empty" and then click Add to list. Then click on Find Now, and you'll see everyone who has that field not empty. It should now show you everyone who has a PIN.
The problem now is automagically getting those entries into a To field in a new email. There isn't a good way to do this, but at least you now know who would need an email (or PIN) update.
As for 2, there are different dashboard mounts available for cell phones or PDAs, not sure if there is one that's 8800 (or even 8700) specific. GPS needs line of sight to the sky, so as long as you're relatively close to the windshield you should be ok. BB Maps is kind of slow for some reason on the 8800, not sure how Telenav is for outside the US/Canada, and Google Maps doesn't yet run well on the 8800, and won't do GPS at all on the BB platform.
