    I barely ever use gps, the only time I use gps is if I don't exactly know where I am like during a bus ride to a new location and needing to know if I'm near the stop yet. It wont replace a car gps so I don't really know when it is used. It wastes far too much battery to always use aswell. Even though I barely use it, I'm still glad I have it just incase I ever need it (or to show off)

    I love it and use it frequently! I went to a cardinals game last year haven't been since i was a kid. Had no clue where i was headed once i was off the freeway, booted up gmaps and bam got goingright away. found the casino after the game and the best route to the on ramp home!!! I love having it there just in case i can't find something.

    I really only use GPS when I'm somewhere that I'm not normally at and need to find
    directions to someplace else from "my location."

    I have for a quick geocache with Cacheberry. I have saved many locations for return visits. To find the best route to a new location. I use it almost anytime I don't have an itenerary saved in the car GPS for something specific. Use it with searches in Life In Pocket all the time too.

    I guess if I rode a bus everywhere, I wouldn't use it much either. I think it's really more intended for people who are actively participating in the responsibility of where they end up.

    Use it a lot! I have the Garmin Blackberry app. It works great! I travel for a living. Search whatever you are looking for: Kinkos, bar, wings etc. My handheld GPS got sold on Ebay the next day!

    I use mine all the time. I am pretty horrible when it comes to directions and my Tour has all but replaced my Tom Tom. I like it, because I wouldn't always have the GPS in my car, but I always have my phone on me.

    I sometimes use my GPS for fun. Just looking at places and searching places. And looking at places in the world where I never been! But I do use it when I'm lost.

    I have come to depend on the GPS a lot more as of late. It has become so helpful in so many situations. I like that it syncs my address book as well.

    I use GPS a lot. From FourSquare and BrightKite, to Garmin Mobile for finding new locations, it comes in very handy.

    I have a charging cradle in my vehicle, so I don't have to worry about battery drainage while using GPS.

    Only time I really use it is when I'm testing out an app that makes use of it. I don't really do anything that requires me to use it so yeah, it's just a toy for me really.

    I'm in a new city or town every day, almost. With my 2 GPS apps and my BlackBerry, I can find almost anything I need.

    Recently, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, one of my favorite businesses moved to a new location. By using Google maps in Satellite View, I was able to look into the new location to verify thaty I could take my commercial rig in and park. By looking things over, I found a solution, went in and spent $12 on a dozen movies instead of much higher prices for the same thing. GPS is an invaluable tool for me.

    Usable GPS is one of the many reasons I am a Sprint customer.

    I've used the GPS capability maybe twice in the entire time I've had a BB. I'd rather have Wifi than GPS in my 'Berry.
