Default Noob GPS question

Please Login to Remove!

I'm just wondering how does it work. Can I use my pearl as a GPS to locate where I am? Is there an extra application I need to download?

As I recall it has the capability, but you do have to purchase some sort of 3rd party application or something to that effect

answer found: cheap a$$ GPS adapter and Telenav on the pearl = sweet

You need a maps application which already comes in your phone, but you also need a GPS receiver since that extra wasn't embeded into the perl for some reason.
