    Too bad it's only for the lifetime of the device and not of the actual person using it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I don't use the navigation that often. I am only out of town once every couple of months. I will stuck with adding and droping the feature until I upgrade my phone (or my job!) unless they come out with a different plan that let's me use it unlimited regardless of the device. I like switching between my curve and pearl. But way cool plan. Its going to save people money and has good features

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I don't see how this great becuase it says lifetime for blackberry device. Sounds it can only be used for one device. I don't know about others but I usually upgrade my phone everytime there is a new one.

    I tried emailing customer support to find out, but they are upgrading their site so I couldn't get to that page.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    Mapquest is better IMO since you can transfer the license between devices without having to even contact customer service. I bought the service for my 8800 and currently I'm using it with my Windows Dumbphone. Once I can pickup a new Blackberry then I'll be able to transfer it again to the new device, all for around $50.00 for one year of course. It's not lifetime but for me a lifetime with one device tends to be only a few months.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I don't its worth because we change the blackberry unit when we see a new model released.

    That's nice to have, but I rather have a GPS device instead of having the software on my phone. I don't know, but that's just me.
