    I am currently signed onto AT&T for the $10-per-month TeleNav charge...and the app is great, but I realize now that I will seldom if ever use GPS, so the charge is too much for me. It's got to go...

    What is the best FREE GPS app that provides turn-by-turn and voice navigation for the 83xx Curve?

    I also have Telenav. As far as I know, there is no free gps software that has all of those features. Especially voice turn by turn. Take a look at Mapquest navigator 5. It's not free but it is less than telenav. $4.00 I think. That's what Im gonna do.

    Check out the GPS & Mapping thread in the forum. There is a free app called amAze GPS which has voice commands.

    I downloaded and have installed onto the 8310 but have been so busy I still have not road tested yet. Looks promising!

    i loaded nav4all on mine and what I've used of it seems ok. it tells you how far to turn, not street name. but what do you expect for free.

    Never had an issue with AMAZE. Its slow to get going but once function gives you voice directions, weather etc. I don't find it to be a resource hog---All my apps open quickly.

    If you go to Pinstack.com forums, there is a post there where they have the free version of mapquest navigator. I've been using it and in my opinion its the best one out there. It's like Telenav, with voice turn by turn, but its FREEEEEEEE.

    Ah, but none of them come close to TeleNav, and I have used them all.

    AmazeGPS is another good one.

    Here is one that loads map non-OTA.

    This is the absolute truth, nothing compares to TeleNav, hence the monthly fee.

    Depending on how much you use it, there are some OK free ones,

    www.amaZegps.com is definitely good, but not great.

    It is no longer free. Sorry, I too was excited to get this program. The pinstack forums confirmed that it is no longer free though.

    I am using the NAV4All, the application is great it has voice and you can choose almost any idiom, the only limitation is the graphics, it does not have 3d graphics, only directional arrows, but it works perfectly.

    Hello, I'm new here, just got the curve 8330

    Looking for a "Garmin like" program with turn by turn instructions. When I search, I find a bunch that cost money. Is it a 1 time fee or a monthly charge?

    Any free programs like garmin?

    I have tried quite a few of the gps apps available for the 8330 and NONE of them are very good IMO. Telenav was marginal at best. At about $10 a month for any of the pay apps its quite easy to justify spending the $100 up front for a dedicated gps unit(like garmin or tom tom). If you don't need gps very often try using a combination of a couple of the free apps. Google has very good maps but no turn by turn. Bbmaps uses gps and will give pretty good directions but the maps are kinda lacking, a combo of the two can be fairly effective for free.

    the reason i want something like this is because i don't want 2 different units. I have a TOMTOM and it is awesome but i want it all on my phone so i can sell my tomtom and use the new gps receiver i have wherever i am.
