Blackberry Pearl 8130 as a GPS?

I have a few programs that i could use for finding geocaches, at first i had used google maps and blackberry maps, but apparently their only accurate to 100m... then i found a program called Nav4all, and i used it but i wasn't able to find a geocache in the area. but i am a newbie, so it may just be that. lastly in my toolbox is a program called BlackStar but i haven't used that one in the field just yet. what i was wondering is is the blackberry devices useable for geocaching? and do any of you use it? if so, what programs are you using?

 

thanks,

Trimble makes a product called Geocache Navigator. I use it on my Blackberry curve and have found several caches with it.

We use a Garmin 60CSx paired with the trimble software on our blackberry. The GPS chip in the blackberry is the same as whats in the Garmin. The only difference is the Garmin has a much better antenea. The blackberry is good and we have found lots of caches with it, its just down a notch with respect to accuracy.
