5 GPS Games to Play With Your BlackBerry


I just read a cool article over at PCPro about 5 GPS-based games you can play with your BlackBerry. While most of the newer devices have GPS, the ones that don’t can use cell-tower triangulation which in urban centers is just as reliable.

1. Geocaching

Geocaching is probably the best GPS-based game you can play with your BlackBerry. It has a huge community and you can get involved at geocaching.com.

3 GPS apps now CDMA compliant


TrimbleThe team at IntoMobile found out that three apps — AllSport GPS, Geocache Navigator, and Trimble Outdoors — are now CDMA compliant. We reported last November that all three were available, but at the time they were only available for GSM users. so it’s good to see them on the CDMA network. AllSport GPS tracks time, speed, burned calories, and distance travelled during outdoor workouts, while Trimble Outdoors allows you to plan out routes online and then send them to your phone as a guide while you’re out and about. Finally, Geocache Navigator helps you participate in the grand sport of geocaching, where you use GPS coordinates to hunt down treasures which are scattered around cities worldwide. When you find the treasures, you take the item inside and leave a gift of your own.
