    There are a few navigation apps out there, both free and subscription.
    Free:
    Google Maps www.google.com/gmm (visit from BB Browser)
    BB Maps (pre-installed on your bb)
    Subscription:
    Telenav www.telenav.com

    There are a couple of discussions/threads on here regarding Bluetooth GPS receivers and which ones are best. I don't think too many people have actually tried them out, so the 'reviews' are scarce.
    Try this site out. Someone listed it last week I believe.

    if you don't have a GPS system for your car the BT GPS unit for your phone is a good idea. Bare in mind that you probebly won't want to use it all the time, its really handy when your going to someplace you don't know very well. The google maps is a app to load because you can search for businesses and get their address and then add that to the BB maps preloaded for the GPS capability.

    Yahoo maps is working on a similar application like google maps, but is supposed to have GPS support. When this gets released or when google adds that functionality to it, you can bet the GPS will be worth it.

    Also, the BT GPS unit can be used on your laptop computer via BT. Its really functional to have a separate unit without wires because with GPS, you need a clear signal, and BT gives you the ability to put it in your car with out being bothered by having a wire in the way, especially when you have passengers.
