About GPS technology

Depending on your wireless service provider, this feature might not be supported.

You can use GPS technology on your BlackBerry® device to get your GPS location and to use location-based applications and location-based
services. Location-based applications can use your GPS location to provide you with information such as driving directions.

If your device does not have an internal GPS receiver or your wireless service provider does not support location-based services and you want
to use GPS technology, you can pair your BlackBerry device with a Bluetooth® enabled GPS receiver. For more information, contact your wireless
service provider.

If your device is connected to a CDMA network and you make an emergency call or your device is in Emergency Callback Mode, an emergency
operator might be able to use GPS technology to estimate your location.
Note: In an emergency, always provide the emergency operator with as much information as possible. Emergency operators might not be able
to estimate your location using only GPS technology.
