    Australia Maps - GPS?

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone,

    Did a few searches but nothing turned up.. Just wondering if there is any application that'll work down under for the GPS system - pay or free. I just got a 8800 - and while the GPS thing is very cool, it's not helpful looking at a blank screen in BB Maps - with my speed

    Anyone?

    Cheers,

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Vodafone will be launching the blackberry 8800 in Australia in early may (www.blackberryforums.com.au) and with that we should be able to install the Vodafone OS on our 8800's. I too wish theirwas a solution now, it looks like we need to wait 1 month

    The Australian version will have a GPS\MAP application based on whereis data. Once the Australia device is released we should see software downloads available withing the first week or so. Once you download the AU firmware just search and rename vendor.xml on a PC ruinning Desktop Manager and you can install any service providers firmware.

    Hi I use google maps and switched to map view instead of Stat view. Some times gets behind your location because it needs to update the maps as you go.

    Can we get BB maps of Oz ?
    I was using google maps but telstra said this is expensive as it uses the internet browser charges.
    I have USA maps, can buy Europe but no BB australia maps
