Default 8110 Pearl Question

Please Login to Remove!

What is the best GPS navigation program to use with my phone. Just got it and pretty much a newbie when comes to smartphones. As well nothing that will affect my data plan since I don't have one I don't want one that operates via the internet - be kind of pricey.

So if someone could please direct me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated

thank you

Well the gps navigation without internet is very limited. you need to load the maps onto the device locally. The GPS itself will work, but you will get coordinates from the device. I have used mobileGmaps a couple times, but it has been pointed out (and i agree to a point) that it is a very complicated to get the maps on your microSD card.

There are a couple others but i can never remember the name. Check the aftermarket section here.
