Default Re: GPS Voice Navigator ?

You were misinformed. The device has GPS built in and generally ships with BB Maps, but some carriers will block it. Or you can like many and install Google Maps or similar application. In any case you will need a BB data plan as maps are downloaded as used and not stored on the device.

The only voice command and auto reroute software that I know of is the packages that the carriers provide for a monthly fee. See the yellow sticky at the top of the GPS section for reviews of most GPS map applications.

IMHO, if you are a new driver, then you should not be using a BB for navigation and the distraction it causes. If you really need it, get a stand alone GPS device such as Garmin or TomTom.

And please update your profile to include your cell carrier. It helps to know that when you have problems.
