Telus GPS with Tour?

Telus is my provider and I just upgraded from a Curve to a Tour. I had a GPS app. called Telus Navigator on my Curve which gave acceptable GPS functionality. It doesn't appear to be available on the Tour. Any Telus customers here who might know?
Thanks

Re: Telus GPS with Tour?

Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

According to the Telus website it should be available.

Blackberry Tour features

Thanks,

Re: Telus GPS with Tour?

Thanks. Yes I see that but when you look further, in my province (Alberta) the Tour is not on the list of phones it's available for.

I'll give them a call.

Re: Telus GPS with Tour?

I have been struggling with getting navigator on my BB Tour as well.  I've tried the following:

 

-Wipe and factory reset

-Loaded the latest version of BB software (from RIM - Telus download website)

-Called Telus DNA support but they were unable to help me either. 

 

The Telus navigator software should be located inside the folder Downloads and Telus Portal Pocket Express application, but inside this app, the only thing I can click on is the Telus International Roaming Guide and nothing else.

 

If anyone has a manual link or figures out how to load navigator onto the Tour that would be great. 

 

Thanks

Re: Telus GPS with Tour?

Hi Peter,

I currently have an "open ticket" with Telus about this issue. They acknowledged that this is a known issue with a lot of their Tour customers and are working on it.

Hopefully they will resolve it soon. I travel a lot and have come to rely on this app.

If / when they resolve my problem I'll post here.

Good luck.

Re: Telus GPS with Tour?

I too had this problem. I spent an hour on the phone with a rep to no avail. I ended up finding this link for Telus Navigator 4.2. It works ok but there are some display issues.

 

Anyway, the url I found is:

 

http://download.logiconline.org.ve/Moviles/Blackberry%2083xx/com_nim_telusbbnav.jad

 

This version is labeled for the 83xx phones but works on the Tour. Use at your own risks!

Re: Telus GPS with Tour?

Kaven,

 

Thanks for the suggestion.  I'm not sure if I'm doing it right but I put the .jad file on the memory card and loaded it from media player.  It showed the name Telus Navigator and Version number 4.2.0 but when it tries to download it says Download failed, 907 Invalid COD File not found.

 

I also tried to update the Telus Portal Pocket Express Telus Application section but still no Navigator, only the Roaming guide shows up.

 

Any other suggestions?

 

Thanks

 

Peter

Re: Telus GPS with Tour?

Hi Peter,

 

You have to open the url in the Blackberry browser. The device will download the associated .cod files from the same url.
