Default What GPS programs are unlocked for the Tour?

Please Login to Remove!

Besides BB Maps, Google Maps and Poynt, any other GPS programs unlocked for the Tour?

All of them.
GPS on the Tour isn't restricted in any way.

Are you saying that Verizon hasn't crippled GPS and restricted its use to VZNavigator? I haven't heard that before, but that would be awesome.

Yes, that's what I'm saying.
This has been known since before the Tour was even released.

I can concur ... I've downloaded a number of apps related to GPS use and Geocaching, and all of them work great with the Tour. You do need to be outside somewhere; I can't get GPS lock inside any kind of building - but outside it works GREAT.

BBWeather isn't working for everyone on the Tour?

It's worked for my girlfriend and I since day 1.

I can't get Garmin Mobile to work. It says I need to connect a BT GPS receiver, and only gives me the option to exit. LBS is on, and the app has full permissions

I spoke to Garmin. Apparently, they have to make a different version for each BB (screen size changes, GPS chip changes, etc). The Tour GPS chip isn't recognized by their software, so it immediately looks for a BT GPS receiver. Unfortunately, that means it ain't gonna work on our unit, and since they sell the license for a single device, you'd have to buy it all over again when they release a version for the Tour.

I have to say, they've made some really stupid and hard-coded decision in their software.

This is true - if you go to the Garmin website, you will see that there is no version available for the 9630 (at least not yet). You're using a wrong copy of Mobile and that's why it doesn't work...

Maybe so but it looks liked they newtered BB Maps - I can't find "Where I am" on the fin location section. So what good is a gps if it can't tell you where you are? User's guide says it should be there and I have reloaded it but...

You have AT&T? I could very well be mistaken but I think what he meant to say is that the GPS isn't locked for Verizon users. AT&T may still cripple it.

Or at least cripple that device. There is always cell tower triangulation.

Blackberry Maps and every other GPS app I have tried work fine on my device.
