Most mapping and navigation apps download and scroll the map as you move. I have a vague memory of reading lately of apps (or app) that will store the map data on the card. But as said above, browsing the GPS section is the thing to do.
About the 256MB memory-- It will be adequate for now provided you don't go nuts downloading apps and themes, and you use the microSD card for your media, etc. If you don't need it, don't download it, and you'll be more than fine.
That said, if your budget allows, my general advice is choose your carrier, and if BlackBerry is your choice, get the newest, biggest, fastest, top of the line model. If you can't afford that, then get the most and newest BlackBerry you can afford.
