    BB Maps or Google Maps?

    Advertisement



    Which is better, BB Maps or Google Maps? I have Google Maps loaded on my 8703e and am considering loading BB Maps also. I have Verizon so will be unable to take advantage of the GPS capabilities.

    Thanks.

    I would go ahead and load BB Maps. I have found that it zooms in and out much quicker than Google Maps and can be used with GPS. However, it doesn't have satellite imagery which is why I keep both on my BB.

    Anytime you ask "which is better" the answer is going to be "depends on your needs/desires". I'd load both and give them a shot or read up on both unless you can provide specifics

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~definitely suggest using both if you can afford the space, they each have some better sides

    I personally like google maps better but i don't use either of them that much anyway so it doesn't really matter. The only thing that i like about google maps more than bb maps is that it allows you to use satellite imagery.

    Hope this helps,

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i wish I had gps to make that worthwhile

    back to the debate, bbmaps directions display/overview is superior to google maps, also there's an address that google, mapquest, and many others haven't been able to properly locate and give directions to that yahoo and bbmaps have actually found where it really is.(Was making a delivery there for work, wish I had my bb the first time I went there.) So I lean towards bbmaps.

    Re: BB Maps or Google Maps?

    I have an external gps/blue tooth that works wonderfully with bb pearl and google maps.

    Holux GPSlim 240 on the Semsons web site. It is small and now only about $80. When it finds the satelites, it flashes an orange light. and on google maps. It tells you to push zero to find your location. Then you see a little flashing blue rounded dot where your location is. I used it in China this week to check to see that the rickshaw driver was not leading me astray. I did find he was going slightly off and corrected the direction he was traveling. It also charges with the same charger connection as the Pearl.
