    Does the GPS on the Verizon 8330 work with google maps? I know it works with BB maps, but when I use it with google, it looks like it's just using the cell phone towers. It give my position within 1500 meters.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    I second that it does not.

    There is another CB member who insists that the Verizon Curve's GPS is unlocked, but the OS has to be 4.5.0.77. I highly doubt this though.

    I have 4.5.0.131 and prior to that had .77 and google did not work with that either. Have any suggestions for a map app that works well with vzw?

    Only options currently are BB Maps and VzNav if you want GPS accuracy.

    crazy people!

    i use VZ NAV for directions.

    i use Live Search for Points Of Intesest searches (does not use GPS, you need to input the city). Live Seach OTA Downlaod: Live Search

    i use BB Maps if i just need to look at a general map (road) or want printed out directions with distance and time.
