Default Beyond411 vs Google Maps

Please Login to Remove!

I am a new BB user and searching through the threads I've been looking up the "Must-have" programs people have listed.

My question is
1. Which one of these programs is better?
2. Can you have both on your device?

Thanx for any input......

Yes, you can have both on your device.
They serve two completely different purposes, so one is not better than the other.

Ditto. Use both. Check out the Beyond411 plugins. While you could use either one, google maps or Beyond411 for certain purposes, there are other purposes for Beyond411, as well. And it is fast.

ditto that! Also go get Amaze GPS for free turn by turn directions.

And here's some details for you to chew on by "Stinsonddog" : Stinsonddog's Blackberry GPS Tips

I'd say neither. Like every other "which is best" thread out there your needs/wants will weigh in heavily.

I am ticked at the latest version of Google Maps, you used to be able to add any business you searched for straight into your contact list. On the latest version it appears that they have done away with that feature, unless of course I am missing something.
