    Hello all

    I just got my 8900 and I was wondering if there is any GPS app that will give turn by turn directions either walking or driving I did a search but could find the answer.

    Thanks

    Garmin Mobile is $10/month or $100 for the lifetime of your device. It features voice navigation and will work with a bluetooth gps puck if your internal GPS is disabled. Garmin does not list the 8900 as a supported device, but T-mobile is a supported carrier. Garmin has a 7-day free trial, so you can see if it's compatible.

    I have been using Garmin Mobile on my BlackBerry 8900. No problem in installing it on BB 8900. I used it in Illinois, California and Florida. It is an amazing program showing the map, turns and voice directions. As indicated above, Garmin Mobile costs about $100 for lifetime use. People talk about coupans of $20, but I have not seen them.

    I used the AmAze GPS, and so far, it works great, has talking turn by turn GPS, and even works better than the standalone GPS on my bold.

    When I get my 8900 tomorrow, I will try the other free GPS applications, as well as the free trial of TeleNav,and report back with a comparison.

    I believe the advantage to using Google is public transportation and walking directions as well, but I do not know if this has been implemented in the BB version yet.

    First off this is my first post so I want to say hello.
    And yes I am a "newb" or whatever but I promise not to annoy or act ridiculous as those are not my intentions.

    Anyway, with that being said, not to sound ridiculous but I can't seem to find Amaze GPS on the app. store for nothing.

    Any help?

    Enjoy!
    I really do appreciate that. Thank you very much

    -- Though just a quick question... if I am not able to find these mentioned programs in the App store, is there a designated website for most of them anyway so I can probably download there? I know odd question just curious.
    Thank you once again!

    A combo of amAze and Google map works great for me. I wish amAze has a fuction to update current location so that you do not have to cut and paste address or type it in yourself. But both are free gotta be happy about that!

    I can't comment as I only have used it for long distance not for city driving.

    For city driving, I normally get Google map and get myself familiar with directions and off I go. I do not like something keeps telling me every minute to make my turn

    Does it lag when driving long? I get a lot of hour glass action

    It has been responsive for me. Giving me enough time to prepare for changing route. Again, I always study my route before I take off anyway. So my experience might be bias.

    i had the communication problem when amaze was trying to download the sound files for the turn by turn directions. i just tried again five minutes later outside my house and the communication problem wasn't there anymore... worked fine.
