Free:

  • Google Maps
  • BlackBerry Maps
  • BlackBerry Traffic

 

Paid:

  • TeleNav GPS ($20/year)  << best there is, in my opinion, and worth it now

Re: BBM Torch Free navigation APPS

Thanks mate. i have the BB Maps but it does not help me with navigation like other phones. I can get directions or view to maps. Is there any other way to get vocal navigation systemn like tomtom ?

Oh, Traffic has turn by turn voice navigation, just not map views.

 

You won't get it ALL for free. If you want good mapping, navigation and voice turn by turn directions, get TeleNav if you can in your country.

Re: BBM Torch Free navigation APPS

At one time, two free navigation apps that really excelled were AmazeGPS and Nav4All. I don't know if they are still around or not, but you'd find then in AppWorld if they are.

 

Have you checked there?

Just checked but they dont have it. I might have to buy the real GPS. Thanks for your help though. I guess TomTOM will be the answer

Have at it.

 

TeleNav is better, as a software on your BlackBerry.

Re: BBM Torch Free navigation APPS

Like I said above, "if it's available in your country". I don't know where you are.

It may be US only.
