    Blackberry Bold 9650 (Verizon) and I have GPS on with Location On and Location Aiding Enabled. The online manual for the phone states and shows that GPS coordinates will appear on this screen if I have these options turned on. They don't. I use google maps typically versus the blackberry map app. Any reason why I can't see the actual GPS coordinates?

    Thanks

    You have to use an app to see the GPS coordinates. CDMA BlackBerry devices don't have a Refresh GPS function and don't display coordinates on the GPS screen.

    Well from what I can find on Google Maps and the regular BB maps, all you can see is where your plotted on the map, no physical coordinates right? Or am I missing something and is there a place to find them?

    If you use the MyLocation feature in Google Maps, your position will be shown in the center of the map. You can then go to Help About and the Center: line will show your location in the format 28.582340, -80.653970. I don't know how to get lat/lon from BBMaps. I use the free app Blackstar Navigation for general purpose GPS use, and Geocache Navigator for geocaching.
