Help: How to use BB Bold with External GPS Bluetooth receiver

Hello, I need some help after 3 weeks of searching.

 

I use a BB Bold on Proximus (provider in Belgium) but without BIS or BES.

I need to use the GPS fonction so I have buyed one receiver by Bluetooth. This fonction work after pairing the Bold but I'm searching a soft or Maps to use my BB like a GPS (TOMTOM, GARMIN, or other).

 

Do you know if it's possible without data service (BIS or BES) and if yes with which software or Maps can I use the GPS.

 

On other think, I can have the BlackberryMaps on my Bold. I had a Curve and this fonction worked to view maps.

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: Help: How to use BB Bold with External GPS Bluetooth receiver

Hello,

 

I'm sorry but I tried to install the software GoogleMaps but it doesn't work.

I have installed GPSed hoe give me the position and the time from one point to another but there is no mapping.

 

My problem is a mapping problem due to the fact that on Blackberry they give only the possibility if you are connected on internet when your gps work.

 

I'm searching one program who use maps integrated on the microSD card of my Bold.

 

Thanks in advence for your help.
