Disable GPS IT policy rule


This rule specifies whether the GPS feature on a BlackBerry® device is turned on.

Default value

The default value is False.


Change this rule to True to turn off the GPS feature and prevent applications on a BlackBerry device from accessing it.


If you change this rule to True, BlackBerry® Maps does not work and applications cannot access the GPS APIs for the BlackBerry device. This rule overrides the Is Access to the GPS API Allowed application control policy rule setting.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.3
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.1 SP5
