The 9700 does have built-in GPS.
If you don't show BlackBerry Maps as an icon, check to see that it is installed at Options > Advanced > Applications. Look at the top right corner and check the Add-On applications.
If not intalled, use your BlackBerry browser to go to www.blackberry.com/maps and install it.
You can also use Google Maps... m.google.com/maps
To refresh the GPS:
On all model BlackBerrys, first make certain that you in an area of good signal coverage AND outside with a clear view of the sky in an open area of no tall buildings.
For GSM network devices, do this:
Click Options > Advanced > GPS > Menu > Refresh GPS.
Give it up to 10 minutes to refresh, and try 2-3 times in a row.
For the 9800 model:
1. On the Home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.
2. Click Device > Location Settings.
3. Press the Menu key > Refresh GPS.
