    Blackberry maps for 8100

    Advertisement



    hello everybody,

    i live in france and just bought a BB 8100

    i want to use it for GPS too, so i ve just bought a GPS receiver

    i read here that you ve got Blackberry maps on your phone but not me

    it s because i m in france and blackberry maps don't exist for france ? or can i install the software on my BB and use it with my GPS receiver ?

    you can also try Google Maps (works better imo)...free download from google's mobile website...just make sure you don't download the package...if you like the other programs there that google has make sure you get them 1 at a time otherwise you'll get lag and freezeing from your phone...hope this helps

    Yup, download google maps (http://www.google.com/gmm) -- it's very nice. Doesn't do turn by turn, etc. but still, great maps, directions, etc.

    sure it does maestrowork...it sure does...you input your starting and ending destinations and then voila!...turn by turn directions using number 1 and 3 to go through each step..also gives you street views or satelite view world-wide
