    i'm getting ready to do some world travel and was wondering if anyone had tried to use their american z10 GPS function in maps "across the pond". Works well here in the states and my phone is set up for world wide coverage.

    any ideas?.....i'd rather leave my real gps at home if possible.

    thanx

    I believe if you're using the BBMaps your data will be pulled down where ever you go. So Europe is OK, make sure you have data plan.

    As long as you have data roaming enabled it will work fine.
    Myself I like to buy local sim card to avoid roaming charges. Your z10 must be unlocked for that.

    The gps is Global (no pun intended) and will pinpoint your location. BUT CAUTION: getting map data can be very pricy if you use your phone's or carrier's data plan unless you have some special deal.

    There are apps that work on GPS alone (turn off your data) but you must first put the maps on your phone or SD card.

    I am not aware of any garmin SIM card. I recall them having their maps on sd cards or dvd disks. I am also not aware of any garmin apps for bb10 but there might be something for Android that could be sideloaded. Please, someone correct me if I'm wrong. (I have the Dakota 20 that I use for hiking and x-country skiing.)
