    Hi All,
    I have just purchased the 8800 and I am wondering if anybody has downloaded maps that can be used in Australia and where did they get them from?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Googlemaps works fine in Perth as well, just downloaded OTA via the google website from my BB Browser. Tends to lag a little bit when I'm driving but usually catches up within a couple of minutes.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ the most recent version of google maps does work with the built in gps. Nothing you have to do at all just run the program. Sometimes it takes alittle bit for the gps to find sats but usually very fast.
