    Hi;

    I recently bought BB9790. I opened MAP with no internet connected, I found that here system was informing me the car speed while I did not activate any services from service provider. Is there any feature in device which calculates the speed without any other services?

    Chances are that GPS is enabled on your BB9790.

    As a side note, keep in mind that GPS is a power hog on any smartphone, so unless you really need it, or unless you keep your smartphone plugged into the car charger, I suggest you turn off GPS. That way, you can really conserve the battery.

    1. To do so, click the "Options" icon while on the home screen
    2. Go to "Device" > "Location settings"
    3. Change the "Location Services" to "Off"
    4. Press the "BlackBerry" button and select "Save"

    Agree, most likely GPS is still on which is used to calculate the car speed.
