Step 2: Select the Set Up Bluetooth option from the main application menu on your BlackBerry Pearl.
Step 3: The dialog box says Please ensure your Bluetooth device is in pairing mode. Press OK and the Pearl will begin searching for Bluetooth devices within range. This usually takes about 30 seconds.
Step 4: The Pearl will lists all the devices in range (there may be more than your GPS puck since many phones and computers also have Bluetooth capabilities). The GPS receiver typically has GPS in its device name. Select it and the Pearl will ask you for a passkey. This is most commonly 0000, but can also sometimes be 1234. You will now see that Bluetooth is enabled and your device is listed.
Step 5: Strangely enough, sometimes even though Bluetooth has been enabled on your BlackBerry, it is not necessarily turned on. This is the most common problem when using a GPS receiver, because applications like BlackBerry Maps will tell you that your Pearl is paired to a device even when your Bluetooth is not on. So make sure that your Bluetooth connection is on by selecting the Bluetooth icon in the main application menu (you know itâ€™s on when the text changes to â€œTurn Bluetooth Offâ€ while the icon is highlighted).
Step 6: Enter BlackBerry Maps and select Options from the menu. Highlight the GPS Device Option (it should say None) and click the TrackBall or select Change Option from the menu. You should see the device you just paired as one of the devices listed. Select it and Click the TrackBall. The GPS Receiver should now be highlighted. Note: donâ€™t forget to save your changes when you exit the menu!
