Default "Windows Live Local" on Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

I DL'ed a MS plugin for using "Windows Live Local" with Outlook and wanted to integrate this with my blackberry synchronization as a backup in case my 7520 GPS fails on me. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Here's the plugin from MS:
Windows Live Local for Outlook

I don't think that there is a Windows Live Local client available for the BlackBerry. I also don't see Microsoft rushing to make a client available. You might want to try Google Maps Mobile instead.

If it would be from RIM, I would think that it would just be a plugin of some sort or perhaps an OS update that would enable the calendar view to display the 'maps' feature with the textual turn by turn directions alike the desktop counterpart. If you use the Outlook plugin, you'll know what I mean.

Kinda sucks for me to spend time to input all my appointments onto outlook with this plugin and not have the ability to synch it with my BB.
