Well after a while of messing around with my phone and me being a person who cannot just let me phone work regularly. I went ahead and ran some tests on it with the GPS and Blackberry Maps. Sure I have tried the Telenavs and Garmin. I love Garmin over Telenavs, just a preference however when I try and download it, it says your device is not supported at this moment. Sure I have the 8820 and found out that Handango has it available to download via OTA and would allow me to, however I ran some tests on the GPS.
Well let me tell you that Blackberry Maps is very accurate in the SPEED factor. I have noticed that even with various applications that not all the maps find addresses that have been updated. Maps is one of them. I have the new version on there and will see how that works though. I am using version 1.2.26 and quiet honestly I like it a lot, sometimes I do not get the map I want or it will not find the address.
Secondly I figured out a little trick that may save many of us in those hard to prove times. What am I referring to you may ask ? Speeding tickets. I am currently researching to see if any application can let us track our speed and times. What good will this do to us ? A lot I may tell you, proving you were not speeding and proving you did stop at a stop sign can save you money.
I am still working on getting the energy to look it up. lol. I will look for it and post results here. Its just an Idea that I came up with to even track our daily lives. I have seen the tracking tools that let us trace our steps and can be almost certain that I have heard of one that tracks miles. However one that tracks speed at a specific time seems more complicated as a log file would be big. Well I hope someone pays attention to my findings as this can be helpful to some speeders.
