      Download "Google Maps" from the link in the resources section. This will ease your navigation needs. Once downloaded, go from "Options" to "Applications" to "Google Maps" and select the menu and go to "Edit Permissions." Select "Connections" and the menu to expand this. Select "Location" and "Internet Connections," and make sure these coordinate with Google Maps. Now you can use turn by turn directions with Google Maps.

      Troubleshoot your Blackberry GPS system if it fails to read a signal. If you are near a building and are not receiving a signal, move into an open area for line of sight. If you are indoors, move closer to a window. If you have just activated the GPS on your phone for the first time, let it search for a few minutes before you begin utilizing the function.
