    Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the help!

    Re: Google Maps with GPS

    look into nav4all. I just got back from upstate and it was huge help. Free voice directions. You can locate any point of interest from tiny auto repair shops to malls, banks, government building etc.
    My friend just bought a tom tom 700 for 200$ and nav4all gave me every feature tomtom included in their software.

    You don't need BB maps for GPS. You can install any GPS app independent of BB maps. BB maps is just another GPS app.

    Re: Google Maps with GPS

    If google only had voice directions I would be 110% extatic. The map seems to load just a little slow but I do like the traffic features.

    Re: Google Maps with GPS

    I can't get googlemaps to work on my 8800 *sad face* It installs fine, but when it trys to load the terms and conditions i get an error message which reads: This application requires a data connection, and some BlackBerry devices require reconfiguration to work properly. Do i have something wrong in my settings? Any help would be awesome, as i've heard such good things about this app. Cheers, Steve

    Re: Google Maps with GPS

    +1 on the voice prompts....knowing Google, I'm sure they're working on it.

    Hopefully they're also working on restaurant and POI locations; I'm sure they'll want to find a way to monetize this service since it seems to be the future
