- I've used previous versions of Nav4All and think it's a great program. It ran well on my 8830 but now I have a 8330 and it never can find the internal GPS. I have other programs loaded that work with the GPS... GPSed, BB Maps, Google Maps, etc. I've tried most every combination of starting one program and getting a lock first, starting no programs after a battery pull and every time Nav4All goes through the config it seems to search endlessly for a Bluetooth GPS device. I haven't found any settings that tell it to find or use the internal device and it acts like it can't see it even tho the other players see it fine. Any thoughts?08-07-08 12:31 PM
- I had the same problem when I first got my 8330, but after I installed Google Maps 2.2.2 it started working. A coincidence? I dunno. I've been frustrated with the gps feature on both the 8830 I used to have and on the 8330 that I now have. The 8330 works better, but it's still buggy. I may give up and buy a Freedom Keychain 2000.08-07-08 12:38 PM

- Are you guys trying to find your position using a GPS indoors? That won't work. You have to be outside for a GPS to work. Only reason why some programs can work indoors (e.g. Googlemaps) is because it uses the triangulation method as well using the cell towers.08-07-08 01:27 PM

I actually got 2 email responses from Nav4All yesterday. Both were basically confirming that I'd done the basic setup and tested the GPS so still not any further along yet.08-08-08 07:53 AM

- I had not heard anything further from Nav4All Support so I resent the following ticket:
Nav4All version:: 8.0.70 Phone Model:: Curve 8330 GPS Receiver:: internal Telecom provider:: US Cellular Country:: USA
Unable to find internal GPS
I've installed and removed Nav4All v 8.0.7 several times and still it is unable to find the internal GPS. I go throught the entire setup process each time... install language, install voice, find GPS. It appears that the program is trying to find an external bluetooth device and will not give me an option to select the internal GPS. I use several other GPS programs including Blackberry Maps, Google Maps, GPSed and they all work great and always find the GPS and aquire satellites quickly.
Anything else I can try? Also, I have successfully used previous Nav4All versions on a Blackberry 8830 and was very pleased with the program.
Thank you,08-14-08 08:05 AM

- Hi all,
Newbie here, just pickup up a Blackberry Curve 8330 yesterday.
For GPS capabilities do i need to purchase anything to get this to work?
Ive downloaded Nav4all but when loading i get "Waiting for GPS" the No GPS Coordinates. Never connects. I have the GPS Services : Location On. Do i need something else?
Opps I'm sorry for jacking this thread i meant to create my own..
