- It will work, however anything like google maps or even blackberry maps will need data to download maps. Garmin may have an app that you can install the maps to a memory card (thus no downloads) but in all honesty, a blackberry with out a dataplan is like a swimming pool with out water...

- i disagree. prior to adding the data plan, i could still use all features including gps and web/email, it was just i paid for the amount i used (like a normal phone.) actually in many cases this was cheaper then shelling out the 30 a month and would totally not have the data plan if i didnt need it for so much email.01-01-09 12:48 PM
It's been designed with geocaching in mind, and has been tested successfully and works with the storm.
If you want to follow developments of the app, check out the related thread:

- GPS does not depend on a data plan... but receiving the maps for the GPS does require data
Meaning : you will see a little dot for your GPS location, but the map of the area you are in will not be loaded because you do not have a data plan to load it. The GPS is working fine, but there is no map to display you location on.01-01-09 03:58 PM
You can download an old version of BB Maps here and install it via Desktop Manager though.01-02-09 07:43 AM
