I totally agree, There are some great mapping software selections for Pocket PC even Palm platforms, and although this has been discussed/asked so many times, there seems to be NO off-line mapping software for Blackberry, which shows how much RIM cares about letting other program stuff for blackberry..

Look at mapopolis, tomtom, destinator, and others. All of them great mapping softwares that support GPS and they have been working great on those other platforms. I had been using mapopolis on both my Pocket PC and smartphone, until they stopped updating. It is a shame they got sold to another company who hasn't done much since then.

I hope that someone comes up with offline maps on BB so we don't have to get stranded once you take a wrong turn and there is no cell reception. It is already slow as it is..

Tom Tom is the only reason I still have my HTC TyTN. For those road trips into distant cell-forsaken lands. LOL.
