    I was just wondering if there was an offline GPS solution for blackberry/storm? On my Treo i had TomTom installed and all the maps were on a SD card..

    Anything similar? Or do all need live internet access to function? As i do go overseas occasionally and and sometimes in spots that don't get great signals at all... last thing i need is this to stop working when i think i'm lost..

    I just want the option to have to NOT use my standalone garmin.. less things to lug around! including less cables

    TrekBuddy is one BlackBerry GPS app that allows you to store maps on a media card. It's intended to be used in areas where you don't have a cell signal. Google Trekbuddy and you'll find it. I don't know whether it works with the Storm yet.

    Garmin has an on-board nav system that has all the map data on a proprietary sd card. I love garmins but I think the need to use their own sd card is a drawback.

    It's a j2me app, rather than a BB app, so who knows

    I'm guessing it will suffer more UI issues because of this but it also depends on RIM too I suppose.

    it's TrekBuddy.net
