    I can't seem to get it to pick up any satelites even though my subscription vznav with the internal gps locks onto 9 satelites!

    I have checked the GPS options and have selected the proper device.

    BlackBerry Maps does not work, nor does the official Garmin Mobile software.
    I paired it correctly and it's trusted and has permission to access anything it needs.

    Anyone have any experience with it? Is Verizon somehow locking external GPS too?

    Please any insight would be awesome. I want to get rid of this POS vznav. I'm sick of giving vzw my hard earned pennies.

    I have the garmin gps 10 and the software for Garmin. My carrier is VZW and I have the 8330.

    It works great with the external bluetooth. What I have learned from trial and error is that if you have other gps programs running it blocks out others...so the vzw navigator is probably locking it out.

    My guess is if you cancel vzw navigator it will work fine.
