Any Map (GPS) application that does not need the internet ?

Hi there,

 

I was wondering if any of you know about an Maps app that I can install to my 8310 that does not use the internet ?

 

I am visiting a country, other than where my carrier is, so I do not want to get charged for Data Roaming. and I want to use the GPS and Maps.. .

 

Thannks.

question about the gps programs listed in that topic. in order to use the gps, do I have to have the gps activated with my carrier? I have verizon, and to use THEIR GPS its either $10/mon or $3.99 for 24hrs of use.

Verizon requires you to have a subscription to their VZNavigator program in order for the GPS to be unlocked. Once that is done you can use any other GPS program.

You may want to look at Garmin.

I have not yet tested this but my understanding is that it works in the same fashion as all there other models with loading the MAP File to device.

 

There is however a purchase cost and not sure what the MAPS would cost.

Spot for BlackBerry can work without the internet but it is very tricky to set it up Smiley Sad
