Default New Version Google Map Doen't support Bluetooth GPS?

Please Login to Remove!

I just installed the new released Google Map 3.2.1. I can't find anywhere to setup the GPS and it can't pick up my Key Chain bluetooth GPS single.

Anybody can help?

Thanks,

That's what the Google Map help pages say ... no BT GPS puck support. Hopefully they'll change that soon.

Can I make a suggestion, as much as I don't have a pearl myself... but seeing what the new Bold 9700 has:

Can you go to the Options menu, and go into Advanced, and select GPS if it's in there, and if it is connected to Bluetooth, select it as your GPS, so that Google Maps might work for you in that fashion? It's worth a try.

Yeah, I had done that, but no joy.
