Are any of these programs usable with the Alltel 8330, or am I limited to only using the Telenav software that came with my BB? I have heard that Alltel has locked down the GPS in a similar manner to Verizon, but I don't know that for sure yet.

I've used Telenav and it seems to work fairly well, but I'm not really interested in paying $10 a month for something that I only use infrequently.

Hello

Just bought my first blackberry last week. Love it!

I live in city and know my way round well. I wouldnt be worthwhile to pay 5 a month for a sat nav service on my BB, can anyone recommend a free service. Somthing that is easy to use by entering postcodes (zip codes) and has a clear screen and voice prompting.

Let me know

Great forum btw....

Cheers

Read the first post in this thread, several apps are listed under the heading of free gps applications!

In Germany T-Mobile offers the software "NaviGate". I never used ist, but the download is free under "navigate.t-mobile.de". AFAIK a data plan is mandatory and you have to pay for every routing query.

BTW: Thank you for the work on the list. Its very helpful.

does anyone know if theres a talking, turn by turn application that will work with my 8320 once i get the freedom bluetooth gps?

JSanders 07-20-2008 06:53 PM

Yep, look in the first post here... TeleNav is one. Nav4All is another.

dude33333 07-20-2008 07:12 PM

great thanks jsanders,

do you have any experience with the nav4all?
a free talking turn by turn app is hard to believe, but i will def give it a try!
any reviews on this program will be appreciated!

oh boy im excited :)

also, i wonder if it would be possible to interface with this beastly old GPS receiver i have? its a "Earthmate Hyperformance GPS receiver" from DeLorme thats about 8 years old runs on4AAA batteries and has a serial port connection hahaha. a freedom GPS would prolly be a better choice....

cubanitoloko23 07-24-2008 09:26 PM

Thanks for this, now i can try different ones and find the one i like the most

Thumbs Up For Nav4all
 
Nav4all works great on my 8830. I removed Amaze and Google because of the options available. Thanks for the post about Nav4all.

Is it possible to use a GPS enabled BlackBerry as an external GPS device?

does amaze work with the blackberry apn?

Grovesfan 08-24-2008 03:31 PM

I have a VZW 8330 (Curve) and don't want to use VZNavigator (it stinks). I am looking to purchase a dedicated GPS unit that I can also use with my phone (I have an unlimited data plan) to get traffic updates, etc. I bought the TomTom Go 720, but of course VZW won't allow data access with it because there's no OBEX transfer allowed on the bluetooth. Anyone know of a unit I can use or a way to get OBEX to work on the phone?

This collection is great. I like the freeware picks. Thanks!

Hi. New to the site but finding it extremely useful.

Where would the new mobile mapquest fit in? It says it can send all the maps to your phone for storage. Has anyone played around with it yet? Is it possible to send the maps or download the maps via wifi and use this without a data plan?

JSanders 09-12-2008 08:35 AM

Smoke, welcome to the BBforums.

I am not aware of that ability for Mapquest maps... play with and report to let us know.

Thanks.

I saw the news release for Mapquest mobile off pinstackers. I would love to try it but unfortunately it is not available for my phone just yet. It is in beta stage. Pulled off their site: MapQuest 4 Mobile Beta is available for Sprint on the BlackBerry 8830 and AT&T on the BlackBerry 8800, 8820, and 8310. Support for additional handsets is coming soon!

If anyone with one of the supported phones cares to play around and let us know how it is, I know I would greatly appreciate it.

www dot mapquest dot com/mq4m or www dot mq4m dot com from your BB. (sorry can't post links, requires 10 posts)

I can't find where it says it will download and store on the phone.

All I found was this:

Interactive Maps for Mobile Screens - MapQuest 4 Mobile uses smaller map images for mobile screens. This allows you to pan and zoom without waiting for long downloads.
