I have been keeping an eye out on this promising Bluetooth GPS receiver for awhile now on shopblackberry.com. It is scheduled to finally be released this week on August 16th.
From the product description:
Now you can enhance the BlackBerry® Maps functionality on your BlackBerry® smartphone with the USGlobalSat GPS Receiver. Pinpoint your current location, then plot the best route to your destination right on the map, with step-by-step directions for how to get there. With its Bluetooth® 2.0 compatibility, the receiver works within a radius of 33 feet (10 metres) from your Bluetooth-enabled BlackBerry smartphone or other device. You get high performance with low power consumption, thanks to the SiRF Star III chipset, plus the built-in ceramic patch antenna for fast satellite acquisition times and superior accuracy, even in urban canyons or wooded areas. The high-capacity battery lasts up to 11 hours on a single charge and recharges in 4 or 5 hours, and the unit features a special power-saving mode to power down after 10 minutes of inactivity. Your positional accuracy is assured both in North America (WAAS) and in Europe (EGNOS), increasing precision by up to five times. The receiver comes complete with its own USB cable, battery and convenient lanyard.
