    I find BlackBerry Maps to be virtually useless and find Google Maps superior. If I were to remove BlackBerry Maps from my Storm, would the GPS still work and could I then set Google Maps as my default mapping service?

    you dont need any map software on your phone in order for your GPS to work. The GPS will still be there and it can still be used by other programs.

    I took bbmaps off and no problem. I do have it back on for one reason...

    I like the send link feature. I use it to remind me where I parked my car.

    Does Google maps work with BB messenger 5.0?

    There are SOME apps that rely on BB Maps, but it's pretty rare, most apps can use the GPS directly.

    Never realized that feature was there. What a great idea. I will keep it just for that too.

    Wonder why Google Maps doesn't have that feature?
