Navigation?
 
Does anyone just go to yahoo maps on their 8700 and get directions? and if so how well does that work. Should i download a maps program? thanks for the help(y)

I use Google Maps (aka Google Local Mobile). Works great for me.

Concur, for NON GPS based nav, it's the best. But if you would like to use googles map system with a GPS receiver, that is available too...

I also saw 'Wayfinder' at WES this year. Looked pretty cool, and I *think* it's a one-time fee, rather than monthly.

I use google maps. On a trip home from Florida missed a exit because i thought Google was wrong. Cost me an extra hour. Won't happen again.

New here and to Blackberry. I am actually trying to figure out which unit to purchase. I am interested in GPS Navigation and if Google maps will work with Bluetooth GPS that is great.... how do I make this happen? I am thinking the 7250....

I have not heard how you make Google maps work with a GPS puck but that would be great to know.
