    I do, too. But at the moment am using TeleNav till my trial period expires in about two months...

    ps: does that mean that you should be giving us a new pin number?

    Downloaded BB maps to 8800 that had a working version of TeleNav. BB maps work on the device; however when you select the option on BB maps to select address from address book and then hit map it, the device launches Telenav.

    Questions:

    1. Is there a way to disable TeleNav without removing the application all together from the device?

    2. I am doing something wrong?

    3. Has anyone else seen this? What are some solutions?

    thx

    If TeleNav is just a trial version, I suggest uninstalling it. Options / Applications / Menu / Delete / Reboot (it gives you that option)...

    Basically it seems that TeleNav is acting like the default application...

    Have you tried Google's free map program? I think it is better, much better than BB maps.

    By the way, I wanted to delete TelNav Maps, but it isn't listed in Applications to delete. Any ideas how to get rid of it?

    I use BB maps for Gps because it has several features that I prefer to google, particularly trackup and it's font is easier to read at a glance. However, It does not track well in my home county, where I have a very strong signal. Sometimes it will go for a couple of minutes without updating. BB maps does work well in other areas. Google tracks well everywhere and has good POI. Because I have a vzw 7130e, I can't get wayfinder or telenav. Does anyone know how to improve BB maps? I have a Holux gpslim 240 gps receiver; once it gets started it works fine. Also, when I start gps I often need to repeat the process several times before the red arrow appears.

However i noticed on download it said that this program isnt available on the att&t network. HELP ME... does this mean it will not work on my att phone or it wont be found for download on att site ?

    I also find Google maps to be a better application that BB Maps. Much more user friendly, better maps and the ability to toggle between maps and satellite images. I just wish either of them had turn-by-turn directional capabilities.

    I have an 8830 with the Holux GPSlim240 and I cannot reliably get the GPS signal for BBMaps to work. I believe (my memory is fading) that I was able to get it to work a couple of times, but I haven't had the patience to get it to work now. any clue?

    I have AT&T and I thought I have BBmaps on my Pearlita. I messed around with the one that was already there but I'm a big fan of Google Maps! It's free to download and really easy to use, seems to load quicker most of the time, etc. It offers map & satellite views, traffic updates (not much help unless you're in a big city), options to find locations & businesses, among other options. Also, for all of you that love the iPhone commercial when the search for sushi looked so easy...WELL, its not quite as sexy but it's just as easy and most times it provides much more info than just the phone number & website, but also the menu, prices, hours, etc.
    Try it out!

    Does Google maps or BB maps give you turn by turn voice directions? Say I was in downtown NY walking and I wanted to find a store could I get voice directions to that location with either one of those?

    Well I just installed bb maps on my curve *at&t branded* with no alterations to the phone at all. All I did was go to maps.blackberry.com on my curve, downloaded and installed. Works perfectly, then I uninstalled Telenav on mine. What I like about bb maps where I could not get telenav to work right was showing the map of the directions.

    I'm using BB Maps and Google Maps on my AT&T 8800 with no problems. I really like the way Google Maps looks and have used it so far as the primary mapping tool. I don't plan on using Telenav at anytime, if I wanted to be charged for a GPS program then I would've stayed with VZW.

    Stupid question, but just for clarification, the BlackBerry Maps application and the GPS feature for maps counts towards your data plan correct? Bell doesn't have an unlimited plan, so right now I have limits..(yeah it sucks..) and was playing around with the Maps/GPS feature (pretty fun if you ask me! lol) but just wanted to check if this costs data so I won't play to a 200+ dollar bill at the month! (hehehehe)

    I love BB maps, it's a great program. I use Google maps sometimes and I like it a lot also.

    I downloaded Infospace and it is pretty nice also. It gives turn by turn by voice also and it's free.

    Telenav isn't bad either, just don't like that 9.99 a month fee. I wouldn't use it enough to justify the cost.
