I would definitely recommend using the Gears Geolocation object. It is build on the latest GPS APIs on the BlackBerry and will leverage the cell tower triangulation service once it goes live.

I tried both versions mentioned in the first post and I discovered something strange. The blackberry.location works good and is very accurate. The Gears implementation (navigator.geolocation) on the other hand is very inacurate and jumps up to 200 meters per refresh.
One other issue I have is that how can I get quick updates for GPS latitude and longitude. Each request takes up to 10 seconds. The BlackBerry map if set to navigation mode updates olmost once every two seconds. How is that possible?

Was any of this behaviour contrasted with HTML5 Geolocation?
