    Hi. I have just started using Magellan Maps for the Playbook.It looks necessary to buy the app again if you have a bb10 device, so there is nothing to particularly recommend it for. Avoid it, and perhaps someone will have a better solution.

    Osmand seems to be the best choice for GPS nav, offline caching, and offline route calculating on the PB. To mind, all other apps need a connection of some sort when you set up a route.

    The app's in BB World, but you can sideload the updated Android version posted here:

    OsmAnd Maps & Navigation for Playbook

    Note that the max value you can specify for PB screen timeout is 5 minutes, and Osmand doesn't have a keep screen on feature in the code (Magellan does, I believe). Others with more experience will likely chime in with other suggestions and workarounds for the screen timeout (none of which are ideal, if I recall).

    Snow Stipple's trick works to keep any app alive running (almost) fullscreen. It's too involved to explain- do a search on it.
