- VZNav has been running horrible for me on .109. It lags, and for some reason it opens ALOT by itself.
After I run it, and properly exit it, it opens back up after a few minutes. The only thing I can do is a battery pull. It stays closed until the next time I run it. It also eats my memory. Before running it I am around 30MB. After running it I am around 4MB.02-28-09 04:40 PM

- I use Telenav and I'm happy with it. True story. I was getting gas the other day and I saw the store manager and a lady looking in the phone book for something. I asked if I could help. Of course they were looking for a business. I entered the business name and it gave me the address, phone number, distance and directions. They were truly amazed.
I personally don't mind if it's off a few seconds as long as it gets me to my destination.03-01-09 01:03 AM

A Google Search for "GPS update speed" turned up articles stating that typical commercial handheld GPS units update at about 1 Hz. So if you're getting 1-1.5 second updates with your BlackBerry, I think you're getting about as good as you can get with the hardware you've got. A lot slower than that, and something's wrong.
I'm not a GPS expert. If one would like to weigh in on the subject, we could all learn something.03-01-09 12:00 PM
