    Great to know.

    Also, once enabled, with the BB allow you to plot waypoints, retrace routes or allow for additional feature that a GPS unit will allow ? This is allinreference to using the device as a handheld GPS.

    Well, Google Maps is fantastic. But if you're using it for hiking or something like that, I'd look into something like Spot For BlackBerry.

    It's much more in depth. It gives you altitude, waypoints, simple GPS coords, etc.. And, it'll do ALOT more if you're out of service. Google Maps is gonna rely on having service to download maps. Spot will still give you mapping coordinates, etc. without having cell phone or data service.
