Default 8300 and GPS Puck

Please Login to Remove!

I know I know, it hasn't even been released yet, but I was really hoping my next BB upgrade would be one with a camera and a GPS receiver. Now it looks like that isn't going to happen and I am wondering if I should get the 8800 with the built in GPS or go with the 8300 for the camera and have the GPS puck. Any of you with demo units tried a GPS puck with it? I have lived thus far without both as I have an 8700, but I am not sure which I would want/use more, I find myself having equal number of times saying "dang, I wish I had a camera or GPS right now"

Sorry for the rant, any help would be a big help, Stinson any insights, I know you love your 8800.

Darn RIM and making me have to choose!!!!

You know the issue, and only you can know the answer. I can tell you that carrying a separate puck and charger a pain that I hated. Now my GPS did not use mini-USB and that would have helped, but still another thing to worry about.

I suspect it will be pretty much like using any older BT BB with a GPS puck and you're more likely to hear from people in that situation until the 8300 is officially released.

I'm using an 8300 with a GPS puck and it's working great. It's not that bad to have a gps puck - i just leave it in my car and when i need it, turn it on.

What GPS are you using? I'm looking towards the same setup.
