You got Telenav Maps with your BB? What carrier?
I am with Tmobile and I don't have Telenav on mine, just BB Maps.
Google Maps is just a different APP with different features.
The big difference I see so far is that with Telenav you can do Voice Enabled directions while you drive, with Google Maps you can't.
Google Maps does give you turn by turn directions though and they are pretty slick, you just need to read the screen while you drive.
Also, for me at least Telenav is $10/mo vs. free with Google Maps.
I just bought the BT-359 GPS the poster mentioned above (thanks!) and it works great with Google Maps, BlackBerry Maps and Telenav.
So far I really like both Google Maps and telenav, the deciding factor will be the voice for me and the $10/mo. If I decide I can do without the voice, then Google Maps rocks with this GPS! I actually like Google Maps better except for the fact that there is no voice.
