Default Importing map to GPS

Please Login to Remove!

I was wondering if anyone knew of a GPS app that would allow me to pick a route on my computer and import it to my BB. I like BB Traffic but if I'm on my motorcycle I don't necessarily want to take the fastest route to get there. If anybody out there could offer any help I would greatly appreciate it.

You could use a kml file, and the application "bbmaps" from BBMaps - BlackBerry. Also Blackberry maps is able to import a kml file, but AFAIK you need your phone registered with a BES server.
(dont mixup bbmap with "blackberry maps" !)

I personally was not able to import a kml file into bbmaps but, that maybe because the sample I tried was to large. Try yourself (the programm is free to download and use)
