    LIST of free gps applications

    Advertisement



    hi,

    i was putting together a list of free gps apps for a friend of mine to try with their new gps puck but i ran out of suggestions at three.

    i figured you all could keep this going and add links as you come across them to ease the pain of searching the forums and hopefully centralizing one post for someone to find different apps to try.

    add at will!

    nav4all:
    www.nav4all.com

    googlemaps:
    http://www.google.com/gmm/index.html

    spot:

    They mention Nav4All, Telenav, and Mapquest
    Telenav and Mapquest are not free.

    boo at spot.

    telenav, isnt free but, some might find the 30 day trial advantageous.

    not certain about mapquest, but i did see a charge for them in the forums.

    Re: LIST of free gps applications

    List of some other totally free BlackBerry apps that utilize GPS. The links below are for installing OTA from your BlackBerry browser.

    GPS required:

    amAze GPS - "Full" featured GPS navigation (turn-by-turn voice prompts, re-routing). This and Nav4All are the only free ones I'm aware of. I prefer Nav4All however, because amAze is simply too slow to be usable for me.
    http://wap.amazegps.com

    Mologogo - GPS Tracking
    http://bb.mologogo.com

    GPS not required, but utilizes it:

    Microsoft Live Search - Comparable to Google Maps. Has a few other features like movie times, and slicker interface.
    http://wls.live.com

    BlackBerry Maps - Comparable to Google Maps and Live Search, and preinstalled on BlackBerry (although requires a little manipulation to work if you're on AT&T).
    http://mobile.blackberry.com

    InfoSpace Find It! - Business directory lookup + native maps. Similar to Beyond 411, but has maps as well, along with a few additional features and a slicker interface.
    http://bb.infospace.com

    Beyond411 - Business directory lookup. Nice and simple, and provides considerably better search results than InfoSpace Find It from my experience so far. Shows maps and driving directions via Yahoo in the BlackBerry browser.
