    Blackberry already has a tool for you to obtain the coordinates. Go to Tools, select Advanced Options, select GPS, click the options key (the one with dots to the left of the track ball) and select Refresh GPS.

    Blackstar (free) from the crackberry store will do that for you as well

    The 8330 does not have this option.

    No 3rd-party applications work on an 8330 from Verizon. It's locked down so only BBM and VZNav work.

    Stengel, you've probably got an 8330 if you're on Alltel/VZW. 8330m were from Sprint, made for Sprint, because of MMS capabilities. AmazeGPS will -NOT- work on a VZW phone because, again, it's locked down and just doesn't work. It's that simple.
