Default Navigator for 9800

Please Login to Remove!

Have been struggling to find a good navigator for my BB 9800, for when driving. Which navigator app do would you recommend?

Thanks

Depends on what you mean by "navigator". If you mean voice and auto reroute, there aren't any free ones. Did you read the sticky at the top of the GPS & Map section that has reviews of amny of the map apps?

All require a BB data plan.

IMHO, if you want navigation, the best option is a standalone GPS device, not a cell phone. More features, usually can be updated easily and doesn't require a cell signal to work.

it would have to be with a voice. but yes a guided map is what I need. but I guess my best option will be to go for a standalone version. I sort of hoped an app would have been developed for BB.

Will read through the reviews. Thanks.

Yep, a standalone GPS unit is the 'best' option.

But the best Navigation application for the BlackBerry is Garmin for BlackBerry. Not sure if it covers the area in which you are located.
