Gps questions...
My carrier (att) offers a $10 gps service, but I was under the impression that gps service was free to use as a taxpayer but you were paying for the use of the maps.

Is this true? Or is there anywhere that offers free gps services?

With the AT&T 8310, you're free to use any GPS application you'd like.
Telenav (AT&T navigator) is probably the best thing out there. but it's $9.95 a month.
There's many other free GPS nav applications out there, which you could also try.

Have a look in the GPS and Mapping forum for many suggestions.

This is a great starting point:

You are correct that GPS is 'free' (well, we all pay taxes).

For $10, AT&T will hook you up with TeleNav... a GPS based navigations service... but for free you could use Goggle Maps, Windows Live Search or any of a number of other 'free' GPS mapping services. TeleNav includes voice navigation vs the visual only navigation of Google Maps or the others.

EDIT: wow, you have to be pretty quick around here or someone will beat you to the answer :)

I guess what I'm really wandering is will I be charged a fee if I use google maps or one of the other free services?

Will I be charged an extra fee or anything for using google maps or another service if I don't have the att nav service?

Nope. No charges at all, outside of your phone plan and data plan charges.

Does anyone knows about a good GPS navegation software that works with bb 8310, but principally has the maps for mexico city?, It doesn't matter if there is any cost.

Already tried the nav4all... need another.
