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.

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.
