Default 4.2 to include GPS for Sprint Devices??

Please Login to Remove!

Just curious...I was told when the 7130e launched on Sprint that an OS upgrade would eventually add Location Based Services to the 7130e. Looking around on the Garmin Mobile site it says to check back soon for BlackBerry support!

I know that the 8703e should be launching any day and has GPS as one of the listed features...Any speculation that the 7130 will also be included??

Hi,
I went to Nextel's website and found the Garmin Mobile link. I called them to ask if there was a web based map to look at for Garmin Mobile. The answer was yes, and that unlimited map viewing was 15.99 a month. I told the rep I would like to see an online demo (or at least screen shots) for the application. She referred me to Garmin's website. So I went there. Big mistake. They have no info whatsoever, just that it is the latest, greatest thing for BB. I usually like Garmin, but am pretty disappointed here. I will stick with the Mapquest FindMe for 3.99 a month. Good luck getting info.

Answered my own question...The new OS upgrade for the 7130e on Sprint enables the GPS for use in java applications. I have TeleNav now loaded on my 7130e and it works like a charm!

What is TeleNav? And where can it be obtained?
