    Same here. I like the satellite views and live traffic of Google Maps.

    Google Maps is what I use to locate my clients to find their locations, REALLY recommended for those who do client work.

    Re: BB maps Vs Google Maps

    I used to use exclusively BB Maps until the recent change and requirement caused by at&t to have me downgrade the version I have on my 8700. I switched over to google because of the directions in comparison to having to go from map to directions on the BB maps I now use.

    The only thing BB Maps has on Google Maps is the address book integration, but Google maps has way more cool features. And they have updates all the time.

    Re: BB maps Vs Google Maps

    I like to keep both. Obviously Google has more features but sometimes it is down (due to coverage areas?) so I use BB maps as a backup and BB Maps has been more reliable for me. I feel that Google Maps is more accurate but one of my pet peeves about Google Maps is that when I look up a new business or location, that annoying star blocks street names. Even if I pan left or right....it bugs me that I can't see it! If you don't get what I'm talking about, you just got to try it. THEN try it on BB Maps--anytime you pan, the street names MOVES so that I always know the name of the street. Although Google Maps loading times has been getting better and better with every update, BB Maps is still the fastest. In my opinion, if you've got the memory, I'd keep both (I also keep Berry411, Infospace, and Yahoo Go as other options! Earthcomber is an app but is screwy on my Pearl but works fine via a browser instead).

    Thumbs up Re: BB maps Vs Google Maps

    I think BB maps is better.
    I used to use google maps until i got a GPS puck and with bb maps the bottom 1/3 of the screen gives me info on the road im on the direction im going and the speed. Very hand for getting around. I even taken all the maps out of me car as i dont need them.
    With the GPS on Google i dont get the road info which is handy but the sat views are the biz. Dont get any other features as i live in Ireland.

    Re: BB maps Vs Google Maps

    BB maps is my preferred app. BB maps provides the ability to see text based directions that Google Maps does not offer (Google maps directions are on the 'maps' window). This is very helpful when driving to just look at the screen for your next direction change without having to press the 'next' button in Google map.
