    I swapped from an iPhone to a Passport because a client wished to be able to use PIN messages. I have to say I'm delighted. The only thing I'm missing are certain apps. The most important of them is TomTom navigation. I have tried loading it with Snap but although the app installs it will not initialise properly and gives the error that there are no network connections. Anyone know what to do to solve this?

    I use the BlackBerry Map app all the time for navigation, works great. Works as good as the AT&T navigator.

    Did you try restarting your device after you installed the app?

    I find BlackBerry maps works great. Probably better then Google imo. Google lags at times and most of the time it doesn't pin point your exact location. I'm usually 2000 foot away from my house.

    Blackberry maps works great in holland, only mistake is that our zipcodes are only in digit like 9700 but that must be 9700AA for example.

    So I have to ask not only the zipcode but also the adres. When typing in digits then the street is nearby in the map. When I see the street I press with my finger on the display wich street I wanted. The navigation start right up.

    Google maps also doesn't seems like housenumbers
    and showing me a complete other city or country. At least it understand full dutch zipcode

    But it find blackerry maps very good and it finds every adres, place and works great

    Well, google maps use usa/uk style of address, where house number comes before street name.

    In other countries you use address like:
    Street name 55, Lovely town name, country.

    While usa/uk use:
    55 street name, lovely town name, country.

    This way google should find the right address

    It appears nobody knows the answer to OPs question, and I don't pretend to either. Will however recommend Mireo navi app from BBW. Woorks like a charm here in Malaysia and on my PP.

    Google maps excels in Middle east. Driving in Egypt, Kuwait, Bahrain or UAE (Dubain, Abudhabi) was so easy, locating restaurants and even the smallest points of interest too. However although BB Maps (Very solid software) works alright, finding any location or address is like beating on a dead donkey, perhaps something to do with Semitic languages

    Tom tom won't work on BlackBerry I'm led to believe. Even though BlackBerry maps is licensed from tom tom, a lot of the functionality is not present, ie, speed cameras, points of interest etc. Alternatives like Co pilot do not work either.

    I'd love for someone to come along and prove me wrong as I'd be the first in the queue to load them up!

    BlackBerry just needs that little bit more to bring it on par with the competition. Yes we do have good apps, they are still only considered alternatives to the big players. It's the age old app gap problem I'm afraid. Still.

    So. BlackBerry maps etc it is for now. Sorry.

    BlackBerry Maps uses TomTom data and is EXCELLENT for car navigation, the best I've found, actually. It steers you around traffic beautifully and is extremely reliable. Seriously, give it a try -- I bet you'll be impressed.
