    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Ive used GoogleMaps since I got my BB and love it. When BlackBerry Maps became available stand-alone I downloaded it to try it out. I personally prefer GoogleMaps. I think it is leaps and bounds above BB Maps. Both are fre so download them both try each one out for a few weeks and see which one you like better. Good luck with your decison.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i personaly like bb maps as it has
    Real time info such as speed and
    Exact location all I do is turn it on and, vada bing there's your
    Current position and direction of travel not to mention the
    Directions are great. If I get
    Lost I turn on bb maps and know
    Were I am in thirty seconds and
    Can get on track to my destination right off that's a time and fuel saver. the only
    Drawback is some handsets don't work with this app, but look to the future to see this app standard, like yahoo messanger on New berrys

    Depends on what you need. GPS isn't supported by Google Maps. However, Google Maps is incredibly useful. Why not load them both?

    Google maps all the way..personally I find BlackBerry maps a little slow in the initial load. The new release of Google now has traffic details in some cities.

    I am trying out HelloWorld from www.mobiframe.com
    It uses googlemaps and the gps on my 7520. I am still trying to figure it out but it seems pretty cool so far.

    BB maps only advantage of Google is the GPS. Aside from that... google wins hands down. BB is a little if not alot behind on city and town updates. I live in NY city and type the address as to where i want to go or even mark as a favorite and BB will tell me it either cant find it or dont exist. Who needs that if you are from out of town coming to one of the worlds widely known cities and you cant get a lock on a busy street where u standing because so called GPS of BB says it dont exist less more then cant be found. No..thanks! Also the "Hybrid" on google makes a world of difference when researching area's before you go there.
