Default GPS Voice Guided

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all--> i recently worked out to use the GPS properly and i see if i plot a route it gives me the directions in words. Is there a way i could get voice guided directions like your GARMIN's and TOM TOM's as i am a sales rep and thought if the BB has it why should i but a navigation system.

Thanks in advance

Garmin has an BB app with voice. Not free though.

This has been asked alot, did you search in the GPS forum?

What's the name of it?

TeleNav is really the best there is in voice guided, turn by turn navigation.
It's not free, but you also won't find one more accurate, easy to use and with great features.

Sure, Amaze has been posted here numerous times and is mentioned in our "All Known GPS..." thread in the Sticky Thread of the GPS section.

Use the "Search this Forum" tool towards top right of the GPS & Mapping forum and search for "amaze". You will see what others have posted regarding the app.
