do not yield accurate locations. Sometimes it is several kilometers out, whilst on the same phone, Google Maps application can find my location to within a few meters?
I have tried the enableHighAccuracy option and watchPosition but it is still not as accurate as the apps.
For reference, the application is here:
Click the 'Here!' button to do the geolocation.

I'm having exactly the same issues on a Torch 9800 in the UK. I've tried turning off the assisted GPS to rely on the satellite only (in case some phone masts are confusing the handset), but this makes no difference. It renders what should be a really simple and easy to use API, completely useless.

Creating an extension is exactly what I'm planning to do! Any hints / tips before I start - I'm usually a .net developer and don't have any past Java experience (hence I'm using WebWorks for BlackBerry development)?!

I agree (being a lazy developer) I dont expect to go writing Java extensions just because the RIM one does not work. I may as well write a Blackberry app, and I dont really want to do that. I want people to come to the EasyBoris site, find the nearest bike for hire, then leave (simples).
Anyone from RIM listening?
Oh yeah, and when you guys finish writing that extension, can you let me know so we can all use it. Seriously, good luck!
