Check out Stinsonddog's BT review. Based upon it I purchased the Globasat 359. Took a trip to Cape Canaveral and had no issues. Have a trip to MD in March.

ive never tried the BT359, but i hear its the best. however, its at least $120 on ebay. For me, i find a cheap $40 bluetooth reciever works GREAT. mine even has the 'worse' nemerix chipset and it works perfect. for sparing use, you will be very happy with the cheap ones.

Hi Richard,

here are some recommended Bluetooth GPS receivers that work fine with your BlackBerry: BlackBerryInsight Recommended Bluetooth GPS Receivers

I am currently using the "Spot" on my Pearl (which does not have a built-in GPS). However, the new version works much better that the versions before. You can use it for geocaching as well. It still has some features that does not works as well. However, there is a free demo version so you can try it on your BlackBerry: Spot

I - personally - would prefer the 7100i because it is the newer BlackBerry that has more memory and the display as a higher resolution (7100i: 240x260; 7520: 240x160).

If the GPS hardware is not disabled by your IT policy you will be able to use it as there is no subscription needed for GPS ;)
