8330 GPS and Maps

When I am using the GPS in the follow me mode. It keeps loading new maps when I reach the edge. Is there a way to download the maps ahead of time and keep them stored on the BB - I have a 6GB memory.

Honestly, I would use Google maps instead. Go to Google and follow the links to mobile.

Re: 8330 GPS and Maps

Will Google maps let me follow my position from a plane using GPS without having to download new maps from cell towers too far away i.e. maps are stored on my PDA?

Re: 8330 GPS and Maps

maps in Google Maps are "on the fly" meaning you need to have a data connection at the moment you are using Google Maps. No map storage as in some GPS devices.
