Default BB Bold as GPS Puck?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

Does anyone know whether I can use the internal GPS on my BB Bold as a GPS Puck for my notebook computer? I have some third party mapping software on my computer that normally connects directly to my Garmin GPS for recording tracks and waypoints in real time and would like to try and use my BB Bold as the GPS source instead. Do I need some special software installed on the Bold? Are there Bluetooth services that I can install? Is this possible or is the GPS capabilities of the Bold too limited?

Thanks.

i used my friend's 8310 as a gps puck through my 8320... i'm not sure if it's the same, though.
