I believe if you have OS 4.2 the BlackBerry Messenger is an option to be installed via the Desktop Manager. With OS 4.1 (which the BlackBerry comes with) I believe you have to install it manually. As far as GPS, you could get a bluetooth GPS puck and pair it with tha BlackBerry.

Yes, once you install the 4.2 OS the BlackBerry Messenger should be an option to install.

I believe Telenav is a program you install on the BlackBerry to get directions. This uses the 8800's built-in GPS, which the 8700 does not have. By purchasing a bluetooth GPS device you can add GPS capabilities to the 8700c. I don't know if it will work with Telenav, as I haven't tried it. You can check Telenav's site to see, though.
