Cool Map/City Guide Software?

Please Login to Remove!

I am looking for some map/city guide software for my phone.

I don't want something that I need a data plan for.

I just want something where I can navigate maps and possibly find businesses.

The city guides on Handango are all major places.

Any recommendations??

I don't know of anything like that, and I imagine if there was something, it would eat a huge chunk of memory, probably more than the 64MB the Pearl has.

Best bet is to get a data plan and use Google Maps or BB Maps.

You can Google what you want from any SMS capable cell phone. Send a text message to 46645 with your request. For example, Gas 30269. In a few seconds you'll get a text message back with Gas station info (up to the 160 character SMS limit).

I haven't tried it in a long time but back then it worked fine. If you don't have a texting plan, TMO will get you @ $.10/message, to and fro. Check it on on Google.

No maps or such. This should get you part of what you're looking for.

But for that he would need a data plan. He's screwed unless he forks up the extra bucks for a data plan.
