I am not sure that but I understand from this forced internet based navigation system is that; in US or in EU, all of the regions are under coverage of GSM signals. I don't see any reactions from people in forums/blogs... etc to BB's restriction to navigation firms. So that who has a BB data plan can use GPS navigation system where ever in developed countries!
For example in my country, signals between cities are very weak, almost there isn't any signal for a long time for all GSM firms that are working.
At this times how can I use GPS of my BB phone without any GSM signal?
BB's GPS solutions are only work in GSM coverage area.
All Navigation firms have offline/standalone solutions for any platform of telephones except BB.
What is the aim of this restriction?
I am sorry about my poor English but I am so angry (Yesterday I bought my BB bold and I am so sad. :( ) and I want to ask, people who live in west countries like you, how can use without offline support? :(
