    You would need to get an external receiver such as the Freedom 2000 Bluetooth Keychain Puck.

    The 8520 does not have the internal hardware GPS receiver in it.

    One more time.

    GPS requires HARDWARE.

    The 8520 does NOT have it.

    If GPS is important to you, then you need a different device or an external HARDWARE receiver.

    "Downloading something in the phone" isn't going to change a HARDWARE deficiency.

    I don't think I would be able to work as Tech support, anywhere! XD I've heard that people think they can download more hard drive space or RAM. LOL(:
