Default Turn by Turn Sat Nav?

Please Login to Remove!

Liking the GPS on my Curve 9300, but not the turn by turn TomTom style I was expecting for driving with.

Is there a turn by turn option, either free or payable so I can use my blackberry instead of TomTom?

UK maps.

Please see the yellow sticky at the top of the GPS & Maps section for reviews of most of the map apps.

However, I do not think there is a freebie that gives turn by turn, voice directions.

Garmin might have a one that you pay for. But IMHO, if that is what you need, then it would probably be better to buy a stand alone GPS device plus they are not dependent upon a cell signal and data availability.

Garmin for Blackberry might be different. I believe all the maps are downloaded to the media card on the Blackberry. So, it only relies on the GPS, not cell towers and data availability. Don't quote me on all this, it's just a guess.

If it does rely on cell towers, then I agree with Dubdub. Get a standalone GPS device.
