    Google maps work find with GPS here in India. However, I wonder if BB is coming out with BBMaps for India?

    The GPS function works well on Yahoo!Maps for Mobile....DL the free SW at Yahoo and follow instructions

    I'm not aware of a stand alone Yahoo Maps application, but the Maps portion of Yahoo! Go does support GPS (which I didn't know - Thanks Navenik!).

    If I use BB maps, do I need a data plan?

    There's currently no mapping/GPS app for the BB that supports stored maps on the media card. In short, yes, you need a data plan.

    All mapping software for the Blackberry does use data, blackberry data plan required for BBmaps, Google maps works well will give traffic conditions in major market areas too (nice touch) Infospace Find It is great but is very slow for me. I have all of these 3 and I do enjoy them all, BBmaps can be out of date in more rural areas, found a supposed road on thier maps, which turned out to be a gravel driveway that hadnt been a road for 10 years.

    I can never find any satelite in central London, and I find the gmap is really slow for me, but bbmap is too difficult to search, as it doesn't allow postcode.
