    I'm gonna have to go with WLS with weather, traffic, maps, nav, movies, and a 411 all based off of your GPS location. It is by far my fave. A close second is GPSed, I used the /whereis feature for my parents to track me while I was on my motorcycle vacation. So I didn't get bugged with phone calls to see if I'm safe.

    These sound like real great apps...can't wait to upgrade my 8100 to an 8110 to find out for myself

    How do you like google maps?

    I think google maps is better than tele NAV...almost the same..but google maps is a bit easier

    How do the rest of the stackers feel about this?

    Hi all!


    I'm no fan of Telenav, but I'll second the nomination of Google maps and Live Search.

    I've tried AmazeGPS, but I wasn't impressed.

    Once you have tried GoogleMaps you will get spoiled!!.


    A few more GPS apps that I've heard were good but haven't tried yet are Beyond411 and Nav4all.

    maybe someone who's tried these can chime in?


    Cheers!

    I gave Nav4All a legit testing period of 4 weeks. On places i knew how to get to and places i didn't. Seems like the closer you are to the destination the more reliable it is. For instance i was across town and it told me to take 14th st till i got to my destination, 14th st doesn't exist between 108th and 156th. Got me lost several times, I stick to my trusty WLS which hasn't given me bad directions ever.

    Amazegps is almost as bad as Nav4All in my testings also, but the biggest thing i didnt like about Amaze was the looooooooooooooong loading time.

    Never tried Telnav

    Ouch, F verizon for that BS.

    P.S. I think Google maps is a great program for maps/POI/traffic/routes but livesearch is just as competent and it also has weather/movies and a category type search style for POI. I also prefer WLS because it has the "last known GPS location" set automatically while your GPS gets its bearings

    I have beyond411 n google maps...I like google maps cuz of the "directions from current location" feature...as your driving you click on that feature n it locates you for easy directions..beyond411...I don't like as much cuz it looks too much like mapquest....n I'm sure we all could agree that mapquest is the worst of the worst when it comes to directions..for example...if you use mapquest n try to get directions from NY to Paris, France...see wut that tells you for a good laugh....anyways..I'm not saying beyond411 is bad...but its no googlemaps...I gotta check wls a little more...

    Can someone provide the Blackberry 8100 - GPS 101?

    I currently have a plan with T-mobile. No Data Service.
    I purchased a Bluetooth GPS Data Logger.
    It syncs, but the problem is no map data is displayed.

    Do I have to download a new program?
    Do I require a Data Package?
    Unlocking best option?

    Sorry to sound noobish, but I do not want to make mistake that will cost me greatly with t-mobile.
