Q5 support India

Hi, ( question might be repeated one)
Before buying BlackBerry I knew its market wont be as diverse as android, but to my disappointment I could not find "basic" apps that a smartphone should have. I need a free map or navigation application and to my disappointment BlackBerry maps does not work in india, in addition to that google do not provide maps for BlackBerry.
Please tell me is there any map app that BlackBerry can vouch for? Would be happy to install in my device.
Thanks

Welcome to the forums, you can use many of the Android navigation apps.

I don't know which ones work in India but personally I use CoPilot.

No as I said they are available as Android apps which you phone is capable of running for good amount of.
You will need to get them from an Android App store, there is a good app called Snap especially written to help with this...
