Default Bluetooth GPS receivers and 8700C

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, so perhaps I am jumping the gun here but now with 4.2 and apparent GPS support, I am keen to try a GPS receiver and see how it works with the BB maps application. The Navibe GB735 Bluetooth GPS Receiver found at Navibe GB735 Bluetooth GPS Receiver(SiRF III, WAAS)(Free Arkon Vent Mount) looks interesting and a good price.

Anyone either tried one of these devices with a Blackberry unit. Any comments, issues, advice?

Were you waiting for 4.2 to use GPS? You could have used GPS with prior OS versions.

Have you checked the GPS forum? There's plenty of discussion there on receivers, software, etc.

BBmaps is a pretty poor GPS app. I wouldn't base your opinion of GPS on a BB based on it. At least try a few other apps as well.
