    Can anyone tell me what the GPS capabilities are on this? Can I download the maps for my area and use GPU without wifi or data?

    Hi Kevin, I've used the GPS function as it has Bing maps already installed and it was ok, but I found I needed to have it connected to my Torch, but I like you and a complete novice when it comes to BlackBerry perhaps someone can help us both here?

    Oh and welcome, it's good to meet another Kevin Morris!

    That is what many others are thinking.

    The PlayBook does have GPS capabilities.

    I have the 16gb Playbook. I got mine for £79 as I had a £50 voucher from a transaction that went wrong. I it's a bargain and just as good as the iPad2 which I also own.

    Sideloading Android apps is very easy to do.

    Gps function works. Give it time to locate outside. I installed the free OsmAnd to test and have purchased, for £5.00, the full version of Magellan. Our playbooks do not have internet except through tethering or wifi router, so I needed to be able to use maps that were installed to the memory. Everthing works ok, but the programme is not all that user friendly. Perseverance will overcome.

    Regards

    Ross
