    Let me try to help. The first few times I turned on BBmaps the screen was just green or I was getting a cross-hatch pattern. I scrolled the pearl and the image got really small then seemed to bounce back. I was sitting at my computer and all of a sudden the local map just rendered on the screen and it has worked perfectly ever since. Be patient and let the screen catch up. Don't touch the pearl for a minute and see if it doesn't sort itself out. Once you get the local screen, and you use the menu to turn on GPS with your paired receiver, it is really quite amazing! Good luck

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I, for one, prefer Google Maps.

    I do use BB maps when pairing my GPS unit. Any other time I use Google's program.

    Sounds like he may not have a data plan. Just my 2 cents.

    Good point, MrGolf. You do need a data plan to use bbmaps. The program loads new maps as you scroll (or drive when paired with a GPS receiver).

    I haven't tried google maps. Many people do like it. I don't think google maps supports GPS. Anybody know for sure?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~google maps does not support GPS, which is why I use BB maps.

    BB Maps shows you moving maps when your GPS is on and your driving down the road. It does not re-direct you if you vary from the route that it wants you to follow to a destination. TeleNav does have this feature. Goto http://brentmedearis.tripod.com/blackberry for some GPS software. There are a few trial downloads available. I personally like TeleNav the best so far.

    Which Bluetooth GPS do you have? Is it free to use with BB maps?

    I'm very untreated in this.
    Thanks.
