    Blackberry Maps

    Advertisement



    Where can I get 'em? Are they free? The BB site seems to be down or something.

    Do folks use/prefer Google Maps. Is it free? If not, how much and is it worth it? Do you have to dload an app to use it or is it online?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's free. Go to: http://www.blackberry.com/maps Follow the directions and download directly to your BB. Google Maps is free as well and has a satellite view which is nice, but I have had trouble with the maps loading quick enough while driving.

    The map applications use a lot of data as they only load a portion of the map and then constantly download as you move.

    Both GoogleMaps and BBMas are free. Neither has voice commands or auto-reroute/recalculation. Pretty basic stuff. Telenav has turn by turn and reroute for $10 a month. My suggestion is to just buy a portable GPS device rather than count on the BB (or any PDA for that matter) for navigation.

    I use googlemaps and I prefer it more than bbmaps cos its more detailed. The latest version of googlemaps no longer freezes. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Google Maps: http://www.google.com/gmm
    Blackberry Maps: http://www.blackberry.com/maps
    Windows Live Search: http://wls.live.com

    These are all free, but will be super data intensive so I hope you have an all-you-can-eat data package.
