Question 8703e owner and want GPS turn by turn service

Please Login to Remove!

I am new here; how do I search a topic like this one?

I was not happy with Sprint so moved to Verizon and now have my first BB, a 8703e. Why can't I get the GPS service that Sprint has? Is it coming in the future?

I have telnav, GOOGLE MAPS and now the BB Maps but none are able to give me the turn by turn directions Sprint seems to give.
Thanks, [email address]

You can obtain an external bluetooth gps receiver for use with Telenav. Cost is around $100. It does work with the VZW 8703e.

Yeah, but you forgot to tell him about the monthly $10 fee to use Telenav.
Waste of money if you ask me, find another solution, it's a ripoff IMHO.
