So I'm going over the road in my semi and I'd like to use my Nextel BB as a makeshift Navigation system??? Is this possible? Or even a way where I can put in the start/end address and be lead there???

Welcome to the forums.

Yes, there are several applications you can use. Google Maps is a free one, or you can get TeleNav for $10/mo. Both give you visual directions, but TeleNav also gives audio directions.

unkut2003, I'd also like to make a comment about your thread title.

Since a thread title is the only thing displayed to other forum members (when viewing a list of threads), the title should offer a short description of the question/issue being presented.

Thread titles such as "Please Help!!", and "What do I do now?" do not offer any suggestions about the problem/issue being posted. However, titles such as "Can I get navigation on my 7100i" and "Address Book question" can narrow down the specific question/issue being posted.

Just a tip for future posts. I hope you enjoy your stay at BBF.
