Click on that link in your Bold's browser and install it. Its about 1.5MB though.
There is a free trial period. 7 days if memory serves me right.
This is nearly as good as my Garmin Nuvi 650 windshield mounted unit.

- Use Windows LIVE search... just as good... I worked at Best Buy in the mobile dept. and I know with Garmin, you are recommended to buy the Map updates every year... well the update is $80! use WLS and its always up-to-date because its internet streaming and no need to pay for updates...10-06-08 03:37 PM
- Garmin Mobile is Over The Air only.
unlike the Garmin Mobile meant for Windows Mobile phones, there are no maps to update.
It's a one time purchase of the software. Handango coupon: LUCKY20. You can get Garmin Mobile for $79 now.

- One of my biggest issues with Garmin Mobile, which I currently use with a Garmin 10x GPS puck on my T-Mobile 8320 Curve, is that I can't navigate (more than a few blocks at least) and talk on the phone simultaneously.
I figured this was a limitation of EDGE technology only allowing voice or data, but as I understand it the Bold supports multiplexing/simultaneous voice & data.
Has anyone tried navigating a good distance and talking on the phone simultaneously on the Bold + Garmin Mobile? And if you did get it to work, did you use the internal GPS or a puck?
This is my only real reason to upgrade to the Bold, since it's only on long rides that I really use the cell phone in the car, and it's only on long drives that I need GPS!11-16-08 06:12 PM
- I had several calls while in the car with the Garmin Mobile APP running, the Bold did quite well on 3G.
I was surfing the net at Burger King (on their hotspot) and listening to music last night when a call came in. The music just stops while you answer the call then starts where it left off when you hang up the call.
The Bold really does multi-task very well.11-16-08 07:10 PM
Very neat devices, and the A2DP makes the modern Blackberries absolute killers for me (I say "modern" since my first Blackberry was the old 850). Take it from a former 1.0 iPhone user / unwitting beta tester and former owner of a Nuvi 680 and the awful Porsche Navi, if the Bold really is twice as fast processor-wise and the navigation works simultaneously with the voice consistently on long journeys, there isn't another phone in anyone's lineup that even comes close for the Bluetooth "connected" car.11-16-08 08:56 PM
