When it comes to GPS reception, YMMV. Sounds like the GPS receiver/chipset is better in the newer BBs. I use Google maps and BBMaps. The GPS reception on my company provided Nextel 7520 was terrible. I would frequently get a message in Google maps like "signal too week to determine present location". That was in a variety of locales including concrete canyons in Chicago and out in the burbs. Side-by-side using Google Maps, my personal 7250 with a BT puck is way more sensitive than the built-in receiver on the 7520 in a moving car.
I was wondering, do you really need GPS in your dorm room? And I thought I partied a lot in college...
