I saw a post in general discussion about BlackBerry maps working with GPS, so I tried it out. My 8330 Curve on Verizon locked on my location, accurately, with BlackBerry map. I was a few days from buying a Freedom 2000 too. I tried with google maps and it didn't work, but this is still a start and good enough for what I need to use GPS for.
This is amazing!! I had read the Storm's GPS worked with BB Maps. I wasn't worried about switching because I have a Garmin for BB. I like the Garmin since it has voice "turn-by-turn" directions, but if I forget it for some reason, at least I can use the internal GPS to get around. This is truly great news!!!
Why would anyone use anything but VZ Navigator? I mean it does everything that any other GPS programs or devices do and more! The best feature is when my wife is shopping at the mall she can send me a GPS follow me request and then continue shopping. When I get there I can catch up to her using Navigator while she is on the go. Plus it gives you verbal direction directly into my Bluetooth Jawbone. Amazing. For only $10 a month just the Follow Me feature is more than worth it.
