    I'm in PA searching for an address that's only 8 mins away and search results are giving me addresses from new York over 3 hours away.

    Is there a way to change the settings on this crappy contraption? Why is it saying searching for locations near map centre???!! Worthless

    Maybe it's user error. Try typing PA after the address so the address in PA comes up. I use it quite frequently and it is spot on. I also use it in the MA/RI area and never had a issue. I don't and won't use anything else because I don't find a need to. It also works through my pioneer bluetooth. Damn crappy contraption always works for me I don't get it

    BB maps is awesome once you find the correct address.
    It's finding where you want to go first that is the problem.
    At least for me.
    You nailed it.

    You don't need Waze or anything else, just the correct address. Unless you're going to Finland to celebrate with the Finish Hockey Team then you might need very specific directions.

    Nope.

    I'm in Indonesia and it has much better navigation and map coverage than the Google Maps.

    It has navigation, and it has never directed me to a wrong destination. While the Google Maps (installed on my Android Tablet) showed me wrong address a couple of times.

    Don't think it has anything to do with BB Maps.

    I use BlackBerry Maps here is South Africa, it also has turn by turn navigation, it is very accurate, the traffic alerts are also very accurate. Yes it might not be as good as Google Maps, but I have no complaints about it.

    Another good one available on BlackBerry World is Telmap.

    I agree. I search for things all the time and get results from all over the country. It would be nice of the MAP app would take advantage of my current LOCATION & start wit the results there!

    It does work like that. In the address bar, type the street you are looking for, BB Maps will give you alternatives, starting with the destination nearest your location.

    BlackBerry maps is very good. I always use it to avoid traffic omw to the gym. They've improved it a lot since launch. Waze is good to see upcoming cops/accidents.

    Blackberry maps was one of the reasons I dumped my Q10/Z10. It is completely useless. I tried it on a trip from NY to Ohio and it was so off base that it wanted to take me 200-300 miles off track. The same on a trip from Colorado to California but at that point, I had a back-up cheapo Android device that allowed me to used Google Maps. On a trip to Sweden, they didn't even "support" Stockholm.

    Maps are so fundamental to smartphones these days that Blackberry maps really underscored for me the shortcomings of BB10.

    I have been using BlackBerry Maps for a long time and never had any issues finding a address or getting me to any location accurately. I have also used it all across the US and never encountered any issues with its accuracy.

    Yep. The search is pitiful when searching by name. For for example I was at the outer banks yesterday and searched for "frisco pier" and it kept giving me results in Frisco TX. Even though I am clearly near Frisco NC. In fact in Frisco NC. Duh.

    That said if I type in an address it almost always finds it correctly and then the guidance is good as well.

    What's wrong with using Google Maps in the browser? It works just fine to get directions.

    I've mostly had good luck with BB Maps. I was pleasantly surprised a few days ago when I typed in a restaurant name and not only did it find it, it also gave me the operating hours! It was fantastic.

    One thing I hope they add is when you're nearing your destination, I would like it to tell me if it's on the left or right side.
