In messenger, click the menu button and go to "my info" and there you can make your name anything you want it to be.

Welcome to the forums and good luck with your new BB!

Welcome, Lori, to the forums.

Open BB Msgr. Click Trackwheel -> Edit My Info

In almost all applications clicking the track wheel will bring up a menu where you should find whatever you're looking for.

P.S. Wow, you guys are fast. There were no replies 2 minutes ago!

If you want voice prompts with turn by turn directions then TeleNav is for you. You'll need to purchase a Bluetooth GPS receiver, though. TeleNav recommends the GlobalSat BT-359. It's on their website.

There is also Google maps. Point your BB Browser to:
www.google.com/gmm

GPS receiver is not necessary and the app is free.
