    I'm on my phone so I can't see who your provider is but if you are able to use GPS without paying, nav4all is a great free program. I dl'ed it yesterday and it works great! Its a little ridiculous plugging in all the different addresses but if you program them, smooth sailing!

    If you are trying to pay nothing, Nav4All is good.

    If you'd like a great user interface and one that works well (I've found streets the Nav4All doesn't catch), I would go with Telenav.

    I used both and I am now in the process of trying to get Telenav to work for my 8310.

    Also, this would be a great place to get your GPS questions answered.

    I got App Error 523 on two different BlackBerrys after installing Nav4All. On my current Berry, I haven't installed it and haven't gotten the error. Also, I got the error both times within 30 minutes of using Nav4All. No, I don't have concrete proof that Nav4All caused it, but the factors lean heavily in its direction.

    Anyway, I am just saying to use at your own risk.

    I just downloaded nav4all after reading this post and it seems pretty good. I was using google maps which is cool but not very accurate.

    I am in love with google maps, because it works great and include the google search in it. I have typed in an address and have gotten exact turn by turn directions to where I need to go. It also has a hybrid view with the streets on top of a sattelite view. I may be biased, but I just like it best. Oh yeah, it's free also.

    I have tried a whole bunch of of GPS apps on my Alltel 8330 curve and here is my brief rundown...Telenav is the best, but it costs $10 a month. After a year of paying that, you may as well have just bought a dedicated GPS unit.

    nav4all never worked for me. The software would boot, but the turn by turn directions never kicked in. Plus, it ran incredibly slow and took forever to load.

    amAze GPS also had audio issues. (This wasn't just my particular phone. I had to exchange it due to a defective power jack and the new one had the same problems) The software would work but re-routing took a long time and in a pinch, would get me more lost than found.

    CoPilot is, in my opinion, the best choice. The software works awesome and you get 6 months free. I have no idea how much it costs after that, but during the trial, it is awesome.

    I dropped Nav4All for Garmin Mobile and their one-time purchase. While my Nuvi750 is excellent, Garmin Mobile will be a great back-up.

    Just my two cents worth...was having trouble with 3rd party GPS Garmin Mobile/nav4all being able to locate satellites. Downloaded the Telenav and turned it on.....Now all three work.....this is from alltel so they must bugger the GPS until you buy their product

    Not sure why this is in news and rumors but right now Garmin sounds like the best bet

    Has anyone had success with an 8100 on AT&T, Amaze GPS S/W, and a B-Speech GPS 20C puck?

    There is no problem with the phone and puck talking (Bluetooth), and the software appears to load. However, the indicator on the Amaze screen never turns green, indicating that it has made connection with satellites.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks!!
