    After looking at and trying many map and
    Navigation apps, I stumbled across a free down load and
    Decided to try it. and hands down bb maps is by far the
    greatest app
    To date that I have used, and now to make room in memory I have deleted all other memory munching map crap from my hand set.
    So if you have an
    Internal. Or blue tooth gps this is
    The one to have. I
    Have given up on the idea of purchasing
    A gps device now, and
    Saved a couple of hundred bucks too

    My phone came with BB maps, but since I'm not using any GPS I opted to use google maps because for me google maps loads and refreshes quite a bit faster.

    HEYWOOD!!! If I haven't said so already welcome to the boards.

    Quick question- how did you get the gps to work via Bluetooth?

    I've paired the gps puck with my 8700g via the berry maps app but I can't anything else to work.

    Any ideas??

    I like bbmaps but in my opinion nothing beats voice directions I realtime. Telanav offers this. I've used it on many trips. I it let know when Ihave taken a wrong turn despite the ovious directions. Then rerouted me. This helped me while going thru houston which I am not familiar with. And it finds gas by price nice. And always helps me find the local starbucks. Really nice. It is worth the 9.99 a month it costs. But I do like bbmaps n google maps I just like looking @ maps. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Telenav is the way to go. It has saved me many times.

    I am using a trial version of wayfinder. The voice thing is good (except for the British accent), but the maps load rather slowly. The nice thing about it is that it's a flat fee of $99. Is Telenav faster? I don't know if I would justify a $10/month fee ($120 a year, etc.) if it's not significantly better and more useful.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~if you have a older phone like my 7105t bbmaps is worthless. Pretty much a rip off of google maps.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I thought utilizing BB Maps and GPS required 4.2 handheld code. I have tried it with 4.1 on 8703, but haven't gotten the GPS part to work.

    Google Maps is great. Traffic is helpful, as well as being able to look up Starbucks, etc.
