what you need to do to get it work is to load some other handheld software such from O2, and get on tmo bb data plan, everything works fine.
I've been an 8800 user with Tmobile since it was released. I've never purchased any other GPS appliction other than what came pre-installed on the phone (BBerry Maps). I've also downloaded Google Maps. I have used BBerry Maps in 3 different countries now and it works fine with the GPS system in all of them. It's not the BEST GPS software, IMHO, but it works out of the box. You don't need to purchase any additional GPS software just to use the GPS functionality on a Tmo-branded 8800.
