    Maps

    Advertisement



    Hi!
    I just recently bought myself a pearl. I'm a newbe, so please excuse me.

    I was wondering if i can use the preloaded maps.
    and if i do use it, will it cost me money?

    I've read in different forums that you can use a GPS receiver, and that would work too.
    does that cost money to use the maps?

    THANKS!!!!!

    Welcome to PinStack Peteboy.

    It depends on what type of Blackberry Data Plan you have. Maps use Data and are data intensive. If you are on a limited Data plan you will likely incur "additional data" data charges. Since you are Canadian and using an GSM device, I assume you are on Rogers. I would hesitate to use Maps too much given the roberts limits on there "unlimited" blackberry data plan.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    As far as I know, there are no preloaded maps available. If you do use GPS, maps are downloaded over the data connection and will not cost you money if you have an unlimited data plan.

    Check out google maps. And you can buy a Bluetooth GPS for no more than $70.
