Default Vodafone Sat Nav

Please Login to Remove!

I live in the UK and my network provider is Vodafone UK.

I've only had my Blackberry Bold for a couple of days but I'm finally getting used to the thing.

With the instructions I got with it, it has a leaflet about Vodafone Sat Nav. However, I can't find it anywhere on my Bold menu - do I have to download it and if so, where from?

I have MAPS on my Bold, but I assume this is completely different?

Just in case anyone else needs it, I've just been sent this link from Vodafone http://vfuk.navigator.telmap.com/vfuk/

Installed and works really well.

Thanks Apovey

I downloaded the file vfsatnav_uk_bis_full from the link you provided. But the file has a jad extension. How do I run this? Windows does not know which application to associate this file type with.

Nearly there.

aahhh.. easiest way to do it is to directly browse to the link above via the Blackberry... it self-installs.

Happy now

I downloaded this about a month ago to my unlocked/ unbranded Bold that I am using on O2 UK and found that the Vodafone version works on it and has done for about a month. The O2 version was a 14 day trial but the vodafone version seems to keep running.
