    I have been unable to get my location much less use GPS for anything else on my 8350i BoostBerry. Everything else works fine but no matter what I use (google maps, ect.) I just search and search for location and never get it on here. Is this something that will work on Boost Mobile or am I wasting my time?

    How did you get Amaze GPS working on 8350i ??? I personally installed it on OS .204 and .313, both times giving me some kind of data error. Anyway, Garmin Mobile worked wonders for the past 6 months for me, but I have a feeling it will stop working soon and I'm looking for alternatives.
    Far now I tried about 5 or 6 different GPS navigation software, and I have to say Garmin is BY FAR THE BEST of all.
    I'm even thinking about buying it (one time fee of $100) if it stops working since this was supposed to be a 7 day trial.

    Thank you for the input. Sadly, I checked these options and all is turned on. Yet still after searching for minutes it still comes back with no info. Not sure what to do now. If it's maybe my phone? Or my location?

    same here as well, it will refresh the gps about once a day or two. I had just moved to my new place and it said I was still located at the old address that I had just driven from about 2 hours prior. it now constantly says I'm at my new address.

    My boostberry data connection is too slow for GPS maps. I use a Garmin Nuvi, which has a bigger screen and does not have a network dependency.

    I just use lifeinpocket.com

    You can even send your location to family and friends (they too will need LIP) and it'll get them to you or wherever they want to go and it has voice commands. Also you can log into your acct online and sync new information if you wish. It offers free text to your friends through the website or phone (if your still paying for texting or if you friends pay). You can keep track of your finances, find the cheapest gas station near you, call AAA, or find a garage for car repairs, movie theaters, comcast and directv tv guide ( I set my DVR to record through LIP), restaurants, attractions, etc.. It's cool. Try it out. It's free.

    My GPS in my native Blackberry browser works fine and so does regular google turn by turn gps in opera mini. Sometimes satellite updates can be slow at first but turn by tuen and live tracking works fine.

    PS just downloaded lifeinpocket I had to manually enter the site as the sent text links are corrupted and so far the program does absolutly nothing....I go to my downloaded apps after it had me download and I click lifeinpocket and it opens the BB browser and downloads again???

    Ok got it to load right think thier web site is bit messed up...looks like this program just opens your regular BB Maps gps program to use..no voice turn by turn except in the find me options..Looks like it might have some use though

    CES Participants Gets Free Traveling Tools from LifeInPocket
    By Carolyn J Dawson, TMCnet Contributor January 08, 2010
    Attendees of the Consumer Electronics Show for the first time can leave their notebook PC behind instead of carrying it through airport security. RoadComm, Inc. reportedly announced the availability of the advanced LifeInPocket mobile suite, to CES (News - Alert) attendees.
    Provided free of cost, LifeInPocket bestows a greater degree of functionality to BlackBerrys than any smart phone. The added list of features include GPS, voice navigation, local listing/reviews, satellite map, location messaging, friends/family locator, street view, Twitter, e-mail, IMs, Facebook,MySpace ( News - Alert), LinkedIn, YouTube, cheap gas finder, news, video, traffic, local events music, movies, local events, TV guide, weather, finance, banking, sports, flights, magazines, fashions, transportation, travel, yellow/white pages, dictionary, translation, the Bible and much more instant information and services.
    LifeInPocket also incorporates one of the most cutting edge turn-by-turn navigation instructions with useful voice guidance. By making use of synced address book,BlackBerry ( News - Alert) address book and its unique online trip planning tool, LifeInPocket Navigation completely does away with the requirement for typing on miniscule keyboards. It is also far superior to other expensive phone navigation services available in the market currently.
    CES attendees will now be equipped with the world's only personalized GPS/address-based local search that has more than 15 million points of interest. They can also go through other visitors' reviews and ratings which have been uploaded just minutes before getting into new restaurants, car repair shops or other businesses using voice navigation during the conference.
    Much more robust than traditional SMS, CES attendees can transmit their GPS locations in real time with a message to family/friends to bring peace of mind and be better connected with them. Other than mobile features, almost all the services that are used daily with a PC are available with LifeInPocket.
    The only mobile application/services platform of its kind, LifeInPocket paves the way ahead for the next generation of application and services by offering the power of expensive smart phones to regular cell phones, making smart phones even more functional and giving BlackBerrys the ultimate position to reign.
