Hi,

First, make sure your settings are turned on by going to Options>Advanced Options>GPS.  Have GPS Services set to Location ON and Location Aiding set to Enabled.  Press the Menu key and Save.  Next, make sure you are running the latest version of Blackberry Messenger.  You can download it from Blackberry App World or from Blackberry's web site.  While you are in a "chat" with another person, you can press the Menu key and select Send Location and it will send your GPS coordinates.  I hope this helps,

Doc
