The 8300 does not have internal GPS. You can get a GPS puck with Bluetooth and pair it to your BlackBerry.

Re: GPS FOR A BLACKBERRY 8300

I have a Verizon Blackberry (they disable the GPS) and I was able to purchase a "GPS puck" - which is a Bluetooth GPS receiver.  It is a Globalsat BT-359 . I paid around $55 from www.buygpsnow.com.  It is about the size of a first generation 1gb iPod Shuffle, or, if you are old like me, a zippo lighter and a half!

 

Works great!!
