You're out of luck.
The BlackBerry 7280 doesn't have bluetooth.
There's no way you can pair it with a GPS receiver.

The 7280 is definitely a legacy device at this point.
You should really consider upgrading to a newer device with a better operating system, more memory and Bluetooth support.
At least go to the 7290. Probably on eBay for less than $50.
