Question 8703 e Verizon with BlackBerry Maps GPS

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone got this working with Verizon?

www.blackberry.net/maps

I have installed it, clicked Start GPS, the arrows go crazy, im not receiving any errors but its also not really giving me any info.

Any ideas?

I beleive that on Verizon's network they have yet to enable full GPS capabilities. To use the GPS functions of the BBMaps software you will need a Bluetooth GPS unit.

VZW has disabled the internal GPS. Even though you can see & select it, it doesn't work.

Verizon seriously pisses me off, why is it there, if you cant use it, just makes no sense, they should at LEAST allow their customers to use VZ NAV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
