Default New Sprint 8703e User - Lake Maps?

Please Login to Remove!

Just wanted to say hi to everyone! I just purchased an 8703e from Sprint after numerous hassles with my previous phone. I look forward to learning all that I can about my Blackberry.

My only problem is the lack of multimedia capabilities on my Blackberry. I hear there is possibly a radio program and the like, so I will continue exploring on that front. I also am looking forward to some GPS software. Anyone know if there are any LAKE MAPS type of GPS software out there?

Thanks everyone!

Thanks for the quick reply. I doubt there are any programs as detailed as ones specifically made for outdoor GPS units. I am a fisherman and would love to have GPS on my phone that has a complete outline of the lake.

I am also interested in this program, Trimble Outdoors. Anyone have experience with that? If you can download a trip/hiking trail, have a map, show your travel line, and guide you through the entire thing... then that would be an amazing program! Anyone try it?

I have sent them a few emails and no response. It amazes me. Them and Garmin feel like they don't need to respond.
