"Reading the documentation fully is a prerequisite to getting help for your particular situation. I know it's harsh but you will have to get so far on your own before you can get reasonable help from a list full of busy people. A mailing list is not a tool to speed up your day by being spoon fed." -- Simon White

Only available in UK. This left Beta on 2/27 and was supposed to populate BB World for all countries. It has been in UK only since 2/28. Apparently it is still too buggy for a more widespread release. Also this is the same app as is natively on the BB10. This is the Tom Tom Mapping application.
Not really sure why RIM couldn't get this little piece right. I realize they bid these things out to the low bidder, but that is a real shame when Garmin and Telenav already had excellent Sat Nav applications for BB.
Anyway, the beta is still available in the beta zone, OR someone in the UK could be kind enough to off-load the files (.ALX and .COD) to their computer, (BBH Tools does this very easily. In-fact their are many free apps that do this, but I am certainly willing to walk someone through the process.) and email them to myself or another interested Crackberry member and we will post the files on-line. Heck I'll even make a JAD so members can just load on the phone or memory card and browse there to install.Ad Lucem
