Default HELP: GPS mapping software and External Bluetooth GPS

Please Login to Remove!


I am just about to take a contract out on O2 in the UK and get the 8800 , I have a question however about the mapping software which you can download from RIM - my vehicles front window wont allow a normal gps to get through it and I have to use a gps receiver with an external extention,
does anyone know if the RIM mapping software will work with a bluetoothed holux gps receiver ? = the phone looks fab and meets all of my needs (mind you wifi would have been nice but when you get unlimited internet it doesnt really matter).
also does the mapping software support points of interest and also camera locations , I use tomtom 6 at present.

All assistance would be gratefully received

Maybe - 1.1.27 has a choice of none or Internal GPS, but I have not paired another GPS device. After that maybe you get a choice in the menu. Hopefully someone can try that for you.
