Advise on Bluetooth GPS and Tracker app on Pearl
 
Hey All,

I've for a BB Pearl 8120 and will soon be going away snowboarding. I'd love to track where I've been and have information like average/top speed etc and also I'd like to export the data to Google Maps/Earth.

But I have no idea what will work best or work at all and was hoping that some experienced members of the forum could offer some advise.

First of all I need a Bluetooth GPS device. These are what I have found so far.
Proporta Freedom Keychain GPS SiRF III Receiver
BlueNEXT Bluetooth GPS Receiver
FREEDOM KEYCHAIN BLUETOOTH GPS 2000 RECIEVER 51 CHANNEL
I have no idea which is best. Any tips?

Then I need the right app for the Pearl with all the features.
Again I have no clue but have found these.
BB Tracker
MobileTracker for BlackBerry

Thanks for looking and any advise would greatly be apreciated.
Thanks, G

I wrote a review on the KeychainGPS 2000 a while back. I still use it and still prefer it:

Gary, there is a great lengthy thread on BBTracker in our GPS section... in the Sticky notes at the top of the page.

Have fun.

I've just bought the device based on your review. It was great.

I had already downloaded bbTrack as it seems to have all the bells and whistles that I was after.

1st class post. Can't wait to play with it all.
Thanks for the advise guys.
