I use the maps/directions included in Handmark Pocket Express. I like the other features of that service as well.

Wirelessly posted (7250/4.0.0.204: BlackBerry7250/4.0.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1)

If you search this forum you will find reference to several good mapping applications. The latest and greatest seems to be the official release of Mobile Google Maps for BlackBerry.

For something a little less robust but fairly quick to load try this:

www.bwconestoga.com/bwmapquest

It's a simplified MapQuest interface designed for the BlackBerry Web Browser.

Yes, that is correct, in order to get/send email, browse the web or use any 3rd party software you need a data plan.

AvantGo may be a good solution for you (www.avantgo.com). AvantGo allows you to save static Web pages to your device for later retreival. I haven't used it since my Palm days so I can't give you a good critique of the BlackBerry implementation ... but it should allow you to synchronize MapQuest or other Maps/Directions Websites down to your device through the USB connection on your PC.

hmmm... After reading a bit about AvantoGo for BB is sounds like, unlike the Palm solution, it DOES require a wireless connection to load the Web content so, it's probably not going to work for you after all.
