In my opinion and experience, there are no free GPS Nav apps that are better than the non-free GPS Nav apps.

Like Penguin said I doubt you will find something as good as the paid apps. You might try MapQuest Navigator and pay for a yearly license, which is only $50. That equals out to under $5 per month. I like the MapQuest Navigator better than AT&T Navigator, too.

Try Amaze. It's free, and it works well.

Not anymore. Mapquest Nav is now $9.99/month. No longer can be purchased outright by ATT customers. Other carriers yes, ATT no.

I suggest you buy a GPS receiver dongle pair with device via bluetooth and use google maps. I have it for me 8230. Didn't have to subscribe to anything. google maps is a free app and the GPS receiver dongle cost me $50 bucks I believe. Check ebay for a GPS receiver dongle.

I suggest that you look at the sticky in the GPS & Mapping section. We have reviews of most of the map applications for your reading pleasure.

Curious - you can buy an annual $49 subscription direct through Mapquest if you tell them you are using Rogers. Any idea if the software recognizes AT&T when its installed? On my 8800, I just used a verification code and paid Mapquest (really Telemap) directly.

Why would you suggest a bluetooth gps receiver instead of using the 8310's built-in gps receiver?

Also, the OP already ruled out Google Maps.

Right ... and so does the Bold 9000 he probably has because he is posting in the Bold forum.

It's changed. If you look on their site the purchase now "excludes AT&T." It seems AT&T is in competition with itself with ATT Navigator and Mapquest Navigator. Makes no sense to me. I was about to buy Mapquest Nav BECAUSE I didn't want to pay ATT's $10/month. Now I won't buy either.

If true, then he/she should update their profile.
