Hi all.
My name is Mike and I live in Greece. Very nice forum you have here!

I just bought a blackberry 9360. Very nice phone, light, fast and with many apps.
It is my first experience with a blackberry phone.

I just upgraded also to the 7.1.0 software.

I am desperate in finding an offline gps satnav application (turn by turn).

I do not want to waste kb or mb of my internet usage (emails, web surfing etc) when using the phone as a gps navigation system. I do not mind paying for buying it. I just want it to be perfectly used offline.

I have been reading the first topic of this thread.
I see that maybe Garmin is good for the job, but I wanted to double check with you before buying it.
Ofcourse I can understand that some special features (like traffic control, weather etc.) need data usage. I don't want to use these features. I just want an offline turn by turn navigation system.

I have tried ubinav (it needs internet data usage).
I have tried we-travel (I think is not good at all).
I have tried wise pilot (I think it need internet data usage too).

So, is Garmin what I am looking for? Do you have any other suggestions?

Summarizing I want a sat nav application which:
1)Can be used offline
2)You can download and store your country's map in it.
3)Preferably with a one-off fee (and no annual subscription).
4)To provide a map for Greece.

I thank you in advance for your kind replies/suggestions!

The Garmin BlackBerry application uses data and doesn't work with BlackBerry OS 7 or above.

Your best and most economical choice is a stand alone GPS device.

Check out the sticky at the top of the GPS and Map section for reviews of most of the map applications.
