I've used Google maps on my Blackberries since it came out. I don't have a real need to use it daily, but every so often I do. The other day I was driving and got completely lost finding my way back to the highway, so I pulled out the 8900 and fired-up Google Maps.
To my surprise, it had me driving around for 20 minutes still completely lost! Finally I pulled into a parking lot to try and get my bearings. After staring a Google Maps for awhile, I decided "hey, why not try BB Maps". I fired it up, found my location, put in the name of the highway I needed to get to and was there in a few minutes!
Now I'm thinking BBMaps might be better than Google all this time. Maybe Google Maps is over hyped? ??
