It seems that after all the hubbub about GPS being locked down on the Verizon 8830 there is finally a way to use Verizonâ€™s Navigator service on your 8830. A new patch that Simon at BBCool caught opens up the door for Verizon 8830â€™s to work with the Verizon Navigator GPS application. If you remember Verizon blocked GPS in the first place since they could not charge for it but I guess they finally opened up their greedy doors. It is not full blown GPS access since it only works with the VZ Navigator .
According to Simon the new software patch will allow your BlackBerry 8830 GPS to work for their Navigator service, which will cost you $9.99 monthly or $2.99 per day. The software patch is version 4.2.2 release 339 which can be downloaded from this link. This just makes me glad I donâ€™t have Verizon as my carrier.
