    8320 best GPS navigation?

    Advertisement



    My wife just got a new 8320 in sunset red today. It looks pretty nice. I was trying to figure out what the best navigation program there is for it. I don't think it came with one on there besides blackberry maps which is not really navigation. I mean it does have built in GPS right so is there a navigation program we can download to use on there? And which is the best?

    NO built in GPS for the 8320 sorry.
    Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.

    I went out and bought a Holux M-1200 GPS puck. It's about the size of a 5-piece pack of gum. There is a problem with bluetooth GPS though. You have to keep the bluetooth indicator light on the phone or it will lose connection every so often. Google Maps is a good program and Nav4All is nice too. Good luck

    Google Maps is an awesome program, and the new My Location feature mimics a featureless GPS that updates your location in semi-realtime. Only thing is, it doesn't give commands (ie. "Turn left here, turn right there").
    I love Google Maps though.

    i have garmin for blackberry and it works GREAT
    looks and functions jus like one of the expensive garmin devices

    u pay a 99$ a year fee for live map updates , traffic , gas prices and weather ... comes out to be cheaper than 9$ a month .. most GPS services like that charge u 12$ and up a month . so its a deal trust me ....
    it pronounces street names and destinations .. garmin mobile for blackberry is kickin alot of these gps devices ***

    I am a newbie who is addicted to Google Maps. It always knows exactly where I am, and while it won't provide verbal turn-by-turn directions like a GPS, it does provide very clear written ones on the go and the maps are amazing.
