    No, all map programs for the BBs use data.

    Dude, that would be a big big program to have maps without data. It isn't practical for a mobile device.

    Are Google maps only for the US ? I wonder if they have released maps for India yet?

    Re: Map programs without data connection

    what kind of data plan do you have?
    if it's unlimited plan, then you're good to go. otherwise keep track of it closely to gauge how much the bbmaps app is pulling. i'd bet it could get hefty.

    are you sure? maybe what you're seeing is some kind of caching in bbmaps? turn off your radio and see if you can pull maps. new maps, especially.

    let us know...

    Re: Map programs without data connection

    I have BB Pearl without data plan and connect with GPS bluetooth. The BB Map program doesn't load the map, but the program can connect to GPS device. Therefore, I think my pearl definitely need data plan to get the fully function for the program.
