I too am from the old Palm/Treo days. I have a Sprint 8703e and can't imagine having anything else. Sorry I can't help you with ACT. I use Outlook. What you might want to try is transfer only your contacts from ACT to Outlook and then sync Outlook with the BB. The Blackberry and Outlook seem to be made for each other.
GPS works great on the 8703. You will have to sign up with a gps service. I used to use Mapquest Navigator. I think they have a 90 trial period and then it's $10 per month after that. I don't use it anymore because I have a GPS navigator in my car but it was good when I needed it.
Good luck. I'm sure you'll fall in love with your new Blackberry. Also this Blackberry forum is a wealth of knowledge.
