    Users will also have unlimited access to Garmin Mobile's content such as traffic information, weather and Google Local Search and there's also millions of points of interest on the map data provided by Navteq.

    Thumbs down

    That would be nice if I didn't have to pay $10 a month to unlock my GPS.

    "...customers who own BlackBerry devices unlimited use of Garmin Mobile’s turn-by-turn, voice prompted directions for the life of their specific BlackBerry..."

    Interesting: I like the idea of not paying a monthly fee or annual fee, but considering that I replace my phone/blackberry every couple of years, it sounds like this might become about a $150 add-on fee to the price of each blackberry I will own. I would bet that the "device lifetime license" is NOT transferrable from one blackberry owner to the next who might purchase my used blackberry.

    I'm wondering if, in the end, this will cost as much - or more - than a monthly or annual subscription to a map service.

    From the EULA on the Garmin site:

    This One-Time Purchase subscription applies to only one (1) Device. During the first twelve (12) months of your subscription, if your original Device becomes non-operational you may be permitted, at Garmin’s sole discretion, to make a one-time transfer of the Garmin Mobile Application to another supported Blackberry Device. To make a request for such transfer, please contact the Garmin Customer Service department via http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/sit...supportcontact. No transfers are permitted, for any reason, after twelve (12) months from the purchase of your subscription. Although software fixes, updates and patches are included in the One-Time Purchase, a free upgrade to the next version(s) of Garmin Mobile is not.

    SO, it may be worth the purchase now even if you know you're going to get a Bold or other new one within a year. I am happy to see this in the EULA. Unless the BOLD version is a new "version". Why would this NOT surprise me...

    Works good so far

    Just downloaded trial on my 8310. So far looks and works just like my Nuvi 660.
    It zeroed in on location in florida with no problems.
    But I think I'll wait for my Bold before purchasing.

    Every time I trial and start the "full access trial" on my 8310 (Vodafone Netherlands), I get "processing" and then "Failure completing registration for trial. Please try again later." - I can then only exit the application. Anyone else getting this?
