Programming Bluetooth and GPS on BlackBerry's

Hi,

I am trying to write an app for a school project that will send and recieve information via Bluetooth on a Telus/Nextel BlackBerry 7250. I also need to be able to get GPS coordinates using the autonomous mode and an aGPS mode. I am new at this and am learning as i go. I do not know where to start or how all of this works. Like I said it is for a school project. I was told to try this site as it may be of some help. I welcome any information that may help in any forms be it articles, white sheets, code, whatever. Time is an issue as this needs to be done ASAP. This part of the project has just been brought back in, so I don't have a lot of time.

RIM suggested that I use JSR-179 for the GPS stuff, but I don't know how to use it. Any suggestions on how to use it or anything else that I could use?

Thanks

Here's your starter code and explanation for the GPS interfacing:

And use net.rim.device.api.bluetooth to send/rcv via bluetooth:
http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/4.1api/net/rim/device/api/bluetooth/package-summary.html

You will need JDE 4.1 installed:

That should get you rolling.
