In South Africa my carrier MTN provides Garmap for the Blackberry. It's superb, with voice navigation. Great mapping, and very accurate. Its free for two years here in South Africa. Might want to check if its available in your geography from your carrier.
It does not store maps on the device, rather it constantly downloads info over 3G, and since much of South Africa metro areas, and main routes are 3G it works great. Used it on safari in the northern Limpopo Province with no roads recently, and was great. Even had 3G signal there. Apparently it uses the BIS for data transfer so there is no cost for the data on MTN but I am to verify that when my bill arrives.
