    GPS Software

    Advertisement



    Hello,

    I have the Blackberry Pearl (8100). I was just wondering, is there any Mapping programs for the pearl that has an option for voice navigation?

    Right now, i have Google maps, which is a great program. However, when i am driving it creates a problem to have to look down at my cell phone to get directions. My phone does not have a GPS on it. However, Google maps uses cell phone towers to track your approx. location.

    Is there any software that will use cell phone towers to track you, and help navigate by voice?

    Let me know.
    Thanks!
    Mike

    Hey Mike. Typically the best you are going to find without getting a GPS receiver is Google Maps or Blackberry Maps.

    If you get a GPS receiver (such as the Freedom Keychain GPS 2000 which is excellent), then you can get any of the following GPS programs:

    MapQuest Navigator: http://wireless.mapquest.com/mapquest-navigator.html
    CoPilot Live 7: http://blackberry.alk.com
    Telenav: http://www.telenav.com
    Nav4All: http://www.nav4all.com
    Garmin Mobile: http://www8.garmin.com/mobile/mobilext/

    There are more, just can't think of them right now.
